Which Are You? - Introduction to Mushrooms.

 

  • Lorelei Norvell. 1983.
    Which Are You? - Introduction to Mushrooms. Mushroom, The Journal 2(1): 5-7
    CONTENTS: The author relates how her pigeonholing tendencies turned her toward mushroom taxonomy and elucidates the two ultimate truths of mycology: (i) Mushrooms … are unique and each one is different from the other; (ii) all unidentified mushrooms are brown and drab, and each one looks like the other. "It all began in the summer of 1970 when we purchased six acres of field and forest. Brimming with pride of ownership, I decided to Name everything on the property… Well, I mused, if it had taken two days for trees and one year for flowers, then it should only take around six months to name all those mushrooms and then move on. Well, I mused wrong." Cartoons
    -- Cited in Morel Tales: the Culture of Mushrooming (Fine 1998)
