Die Grundlagen der Morphologie und der Anatomie von Großpilzen werden in diesem Lehrbuch, das auch für interessierte Laien verfasst wurde, allgemeinverständlich dargestellt. Es vermittelt zwischen der natürlichen Anschauung und dem Lehrbuchwissen, aber auch zwischen der akademischen und der populären Mykologie. Dies gelingt den Autoren auf der foundation von Definitionen und Erläuterungen fachsprachlicher Begriffe, untermauert durch naturnahe Illustrationen auf 112 Farbtafeln. Das Buch dient dem allgemeinen Verständnis der komplizierten Eigenheiten von Pilzen, die sich mit versteckter Sexualität, mit abnormen Vermehrungs- und Verbreitungsstrategien und mit Organismen verbindenden Symbiosen und weitgehend fehlender Individualität in vieler Hinsicht von Blütenpflanzen und Tieren unterscheiden.
