This book is a bit technical for my needs and is geared towards those working in forestry, but also contains many excellent, large, and full-colour photographs of conks (bracket fungi), a group of organisms that is often neglected in field guides, as well as other fungi that infect trees. If you've spent much time in the forests of the province, you've likely seen many of these species (or their symptoms) without being aware of what you were looking at. That is certainly true for me, anyway, and I think I should start referring to this book more often! Overall, Common Tree Diseases of British Columbia was a more interesting and readable guide than I was expecting (skipping the technical parts that required a microscope). ( )
