Many mushrooms - or the 'fruits of fungi' - are extremely valuable, wild-gathered products which are utilised for both their medicinal properties and as food. In many of the world's tropical and temperate forests, they are the primary source of income for the people who live there. These forests range from temperate woodlands and small forests to high altitude forests in the Himalaya and tropical miombo woodlands in south-central Africa. In south-west China, over 200 species of wild fungi in 64 genera are commercially traded while in Europe and North America, woodlands and small forests are the source of many highly-prized mushrooms and an essential resource for many small enterprises and collectors. Yet the increased demand for timber has resulted in the rapid expansion of forestry, which in turn has destroyed the natural habitat of many fungi, unbalancing both forest economics and ecology. Despite the economic, social and cultural values of fungi, there is a general lack of understanding of their importance to local livelihoods and forest ecology. This book aims to fill this gap and extends the People and Plants Conservation Series beyond the plant kingdom into the related world of fungi and mushrooms. It demonstrates the crucial roles that fungi play in maintaining forest ecosystems and the livelihoods of rural people throughout the world while providing good practice guidelines for the sustainable management of this resource and an assessment of economic value. It brings together the perspectives of biologists, anthropologists and forest and woodland managers to provide a unique inter-disciplinary and international overview of the key issues.

There is growing knowledge about and appreciation of the importance of Non-timber Forest Products (NTFPs) to rural livelihoods in developing countries, and to a lesser extent, developed countries. However, there is also an assumption on the part of policy-makers that any harvesting of wild animal or plant products from the forests and other natural and modified ecosystems must be detrimental to the long-term viability of target populations and species. This book challenges this idea and shows that while examples of such negative impacts certainly exist, there are also many examples of sustainable harvesting systems for NTFPs. The chapters review and present coherent and scientifically sound information and case studies on the ecologically sustainable use of NTFPs. They also outline a general interdisciplinary approach for assessing the sustainability of NTFP harvesting systems at different scales. A wide range of case studies is included from Africa, Asia and South America, using plant and animal products for food, crafts, textiles, medicines and cosmetics.

Dieser Band ist konzipiert, um mit relativ einfachen Mitteln die pileaten Porlinge Mitteleuropas bestimmen zu können. Zahlreiche, farbige Abbildungen helfen dem Leser bei der Bestimmung Holz bewohnender Baumpilze mit röhrenartigen Fruchtschichten. Da die Bestimmung der Arten einiger Erfahrung bedarf, helfen die detailreichen Fotos in Farbe auch weniger erfahrenen Naturfreunden weiter. Dem Leser wird in einem ersten Teil die Morphologie und Anatomie der Porlinge vorgestellt, bevor in einem zweiten Teil näher auf die einzelnen Arten eingegangen wird. Interessante Fakten über die Verbreitung, die Nutzung oder auch Erklärungen zu ungewöhnlichen Namensgebungen wie Zunderschwamm, Apothekerschwamm, Pflaumenbaumporling oder Schwefelporling fließen zwischen den Artbeschreibungen ein. Praktikern, Ökologen und auch Naturschützern soll dieser Band durch seine Hinweise auf alle europäischen Arten ein Leitfaden bei der Arbeit mit den Porlingen sein.

Der Kulturhistoriker Erich Auerbach (1892-1957) zählt zu den bedeutendsten Kulturwissenschaftlern und Romanisten des 20. Jahrhunderts. Wie viele andere bedeutende Gelehrte emigrierte er früh aus Deutschland, um der Verfolgung durch die Nationalsozialisten zu entgehen. Bereits 1929 erschien sein Buch zu Dante, das trotz des etwas komplizierten Titels einen runden Gesamtüberblick über das dichterische Schaffen des italienischen Nationaldichters gibt. Auerbach spürte in der Göttlichen Komödie, Dantes Hauptwerk, viele Realismen auf. Rückbezüge auf die Welt des Irdischen bleiben auch im Grauen der Hölle, in der Hoffnung des Fegefeuers und in der religiösen Ekstase des Paradieses deutlich. Dante schildert beispielsweise viele Zeitgenossen und ihre Sünden, die dann entsprechend gebüßt werden. Bei Auerbach wird das Universum Dantes eindrucksvoll lebendig.
