This page contains some information on mushrooms. The often colorful fruitbodies that can be found in great numbers all year round, but especially in the late summer and early autumn, have fascinated me since I was a little kid. In fact, it was an attempt to identify some mushrooms I had found with the aid of the users of an excellent online community that sparked a passion for photography. Hence , this website features a sizeable collection of mushroom photographs.
In addition to the photographs on this website, this page aims to unlock a few more pieces of information on mushrooms and related subjects. The information offered is assembled from a viewpoint of ethnobotany, or, simply put, it approaches mushrooms from the possible uses they have for man. Apart from fungi being useful as the recyclers of nature, mushrooms are also used as a food, for their medicinal and entheogenic properties and for various other purposes.
