Edible and Poisonous Mushrooms of the CarpathiansMushrooms of the Carpathian Mountains
The Carpathians of central Europe are young mountains of medium elevations separated from the Alps by the Danube River. They stretch in an arc for about 1,500 km along the borders of Romania, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Ukraine, Austria, Serbia, and northern Hungary.
In Poland, the Carpathians are known especially for their beautiful forests. These forests and meadows are home to about 5000 species of mushrooms.
Mushrooms belong to the Kingdom Fungi, an independent group equal in rank to that of plants and animals. They are fleshy fruiting bodies of the fungi. Some are edible and some are toxic. This album is dedicted to all of them.
