  • Title
    Fungus among us: An exploration of fungi in the Anamalai hills.
    Type
    Book
    Description
    The rainforests of the Anamalai hills in the Western Ghats provide ideal conditions for the occurence of a wide diversity of remarkable fungi. This booklet presents a brief introduction to the rich diversity of fungi in the Anamalai hills, which we hope will encourage naturalists to observe this fascinating group in the field. The fungi are identified only to the Genus level and are grouped according to their macroscopic features with each group having a different colour code. In this booklet, we deal only with macrofungi (large fungi with visible fruiting bodies. ) CONTENTS About Fungi 1 Anatomy 2 Universal veil 3 Reproduction 4 Dispersal of spores 5 Interesting facts 6 Field identification 7 Cap and stem fungi 8 Jelly fungi 24 Coral and club fungi 30 Shelf and bracket fungi 34 Other fungi 46 References 55 Index 56 Photo credits 56 INDEX OF TAXA Agaricus Amanita Ascobolus Auricularia Bird’s nest fungi Bjerkandera Boletus Calocera Calyptella Clavaroid fungi Coprinus Cookeina Cordyceps Dacrymyces Filoboletus Fomitopsis Galerina Gymnopilus Hexagonia Hygrocybe Laetiporus Leucocoprinus Macrolepiota Marasmius Microporus Mycena Omphalotus Panaeolina Peziza Phallus Phillipsia Pleurocybella Pleurotus Puff balls Pycnoporus Schizophyllum Stereum Stropharia Trametes Tremella Xylaria

    My contribution to the fungal knowledge of India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    This work is mainly based on the Western Ghats fungi but very a are from coolingtowers, Eastern Ghats, northeastern India and Andaman Islands. The work includes the fungi from Satara in Maharashtra; Nilgiris, Anamalai, Seithur hills, Godheyar, etc. from Tamil Nadu; mainly from Kodagu in Karnataka; most of the places in the Western Ghats of Kerala state have been covered. Since my work is distributed in 391 reprints (save the subsequent ones), an effort has been made here to bring all the taxa and information in one place. It comprises 6059 entries from the reprints giving an account of 2084 fungal taxa belonging to 259 genera on 2969 hosts/substrates. This is presented here as: Introduction, List of publications, Entries from the reprints, List of fungi, Fungal genera, Host/Substratum-fungus Index and Host Plants.
