    CONTENTS: The second two publications summarize or augment material presented in the first, a US government handbook that provides an in-depth look of what is currently known about chanterelles, globally renowned as one of the best edible forest mushrooms with an international commercial value that may exceed a billion dollars annually. Chanterelles are described in the broad sense and North American species and their place among chanterelle species in the world are discussed. Also treated are international markets for chanterelles, their biology, physiology, and ecology, reasons for declining production in parts of Europe and efforts to cultivate them. Pacific Northwest species and described in detail include Cantharellus cibarius var. roseocanus (rainbow chanterelle), C. formosus (Pacific golden chanterelle — and Oregon State Mushroom), C. subalbidus (white chanterelle), Craterellus fallax (horn of plenty), Cr. neotubaeformis nom. prov. (winter craterelle), Gomphus clavatus (pig’s ear gomphus), and Polyozellus multiplex (blue chanterelle). Color photographs and a key to chanterelles and look-alikes accompany the descriptions. Regional forest management issues, recent studies, and future research and monitoring needed to sustain this prized resource are also discussed. [pdf file]
