Fungi play an incredibly important role in all terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. They aid decomposition and nutrient cycling, help to create and stabilise soils, form relationships with plant roots that are essential for the survival of plants, and provide habitat and a food resource for a multitude of other organisms.

A guide to the common fungi of coastal New South Wales is designed to be used by people of all ages to identify fungi in the field. It also contains some great information on what fungi are, why they're so important, and where to find them.
