CENN Publishes a Field Guide – Mushrooms of Georgia

CENN, with the support of the Austrian Development Cooperation (ADC), published a field guide – Mushrooms of Georgia.

The purpose of the guide is to help you identify mushrooms in the wild. Here you will learn about 150 species of macromycetes that are commonly found in Georgia. The guide contains information on poisonous and edible mushrooms as well as the structure and gathering of the mushrooms.

In addition, the guide also covers the following information on each species of mushrooms:

  •  Georgian, Latin and English names of the species;
  •  morphological description;
  •  habitat, substrate and seasonality;
  •  continental distribution;
  •  use (edibility, toxicity).
