Re: Small Asco ? on very wet wood

As Socrates is supposed to have said "I know that I know nothing"

Re: Resources and suppliers

Summerfield Books seem to be able to get some books not widely available. Recently bought Dutch Rust Fungi through them. They are always helpful in my experience My post was not a criticism of Summerfield Books. Most of my books come from there. I was just saying Andreas has some books they don't h...
