Sharing on behalf of the Welsh Microfungi Group
Dear Fellow Mycologists,
This is just a message to hopefully promote our new book on “ White Moulds, Ramularia and Phacellium Anamorphs, in Wales and Britain: a Guide and Welsh Census Catalogue ” which has now been printed. This is the 5th volume in the series covering phytoparasitic microfungi by the Welsh Microfungi Group. I’ve attached a flier which will give you more information about it and the contents and how to obtain a copy. This group of fungal pathogens are very common, yet very under-recorded. Using the book it should be possible to identify most species found and hopefully generate lots of new records.
There is no similar book available and most specialist books are very expensive as we all know. Thanks to generous help from the BSPP and BMS we are able to sell the books at a very affordable price, thus, at £6.50 plus p&p it’s an absolute bargain! (There is some information about our other books on Rust Fungi; Smuts and Allied Fungi; Powdery Mildews; and Downy Mildews & Albugos on the flier. There are still some hard copies of the last 2 volumes available and all are available to download for free from the link on the flier).
The book is richly illustrated including full colour macroscopic images of infected plants and microscopic images of the fungi. Using the book and knowing the host species it should be possible to identify most of the species collected and we hope it will encourage and stimulate more recording of this group.
I couldn’t attach the flyer so copied and pasted a section, as follows:
The book is in A4 format, spirally bound with a plastic-coated cover and contains 128 pages and over 300 images. You can examine an online version through the link below.
Copies, as a result of financial support from the British Society for Plant Pathology and the British Mycological Society, only cost £6.50 plus £3.20 p&p directly from Ray Woods, Ty Mawr Mill, Builth Wells, Powys. LD2 3SH. Email: [email protected]
Hard copies will also be available from on-line book suppliers (ISBN 978-0-956 5750-5-0) and digital copies can be download free from https://www.aber.ac.uk/waxcap/downloads/Chater21-RamulariaWalesCensus.pdf
