Upon its publication in 1957 A Glossary of Mycology was acclaimed by scientific and medical journals throughout the United States and Britain. The International Record of Medicine called it “a valuable reference book for every mycologist.” Antibiotics and Chemotherapy recommended it as essential for all scientific libraries. The Bryologist said, “The authors are to be congratulated upon the wealth of information…the book is highly recommended in every respect.”

Nearly 7,000 terms—technical terms and their derivations; common or popular, vernacular, and obsolete terms; terms used in the field of medical mycology and antibiotics; names of the originators of terms; folklore terms; and color terms—were covered by the original edition. Also included were terms which, though not strictly mycological, occur frequently in literature of particular interest to mycologists.

This revision brings the work up to date with the considerable developments in the field since its first publication. Nearly 350 terms have been added, and new definitions for many of the original terms supplied. Excellent diagrammatic line drawings by Henry A. C. Jackson illustrate 191 of the terms.

Since geologists are beginning to use the term “Anthropocene” to designate the era of Earth’s history that follows the Holocene
