The centerpiece of this peer-reviewed book is a taxonomic listing of fungi, including lichens and myxomycota, known or likely to occur in Rhode Island. Each listing for the approximately 1,700 species includes a taxonomic classification, synonymy, and bibliography, as well as notes on hosts, substrates, medical or economic significance, common name, and status in the state. Other useful features in the book include a short introduction summarizing the history of mycology in Rhode Island, a bibliography of taxonomic and evidentiary sources, 11 pen-and-ink illustrations by Roberta Calore, and an index that includes all taxonomic entries as well as substrates and general topics.bookforweb

A thorough taxonomic inventory such as this could only be the product of a life’s work by someone such as Prof. Roger Goos, a dedicated scholar with strong ties to numerous knowledgeable specialists, professional and amateur. Dr. Goos taught mycology at the University of Rhode Island from 1970 to 1995 and served as Chair of the Department of Botany for 15 years. He authored more than 130 research publications and served as president of the Mycological Society of America and the New England Wild Flower Society. In the naturalist community, he was a favorite leader for “mushroom walks”.
