Myxomycetes of New Zealand -- The Fungi of New Zealand volume 3
This book aims to provide a comprehensive monographic treatment of the more than 180 species of myxomycete previously reported or known to occur in New Zealand. An overview of the group is given, including aspects of their biology and ecology, along with an explanation of the basic structural features of the fruiting body upon which identification is based. Dichotomous keys are provided to the different taxonomic orders of myxomycetes and to families, genera, and species within each of these orders. Each species is described, and selected examples are illustrated with line drawings and/or colour photographs.
