The ebook contains greater than 475 illustrations, just about all in colour, of fossil fungi, line drawings, and photographs of individuals, in addition to a thesaurus of greater than seven hundred mycological and paleontological phrases that might be helpful to either biologists and geoscientists.

  • First publication dedicated to the entire spectrum of the fossil list of fungi, starting from Proterozoic fossils to the position of fungi in rock weathering
  • Detailed dialogue of ways fossil fungi are preserved and studied
  • Extensive bibliography with greater than 2000 entries
  • Where attainable, fungal fossils are positioned in a latest systematic context
