What reviewers have to say about Teng's Fungi of China

"... one of the most valuable books on the fungi of China ever published in English." - Mycologia 90: 1091-1092, 1998.

"... a great big blue uncompromising brick of a book ... an instant classic. Anyone interested in identification of fungi, particularly in Asia, should get this book immediately. Mycology owes another debt to Dick Korf for his sympathetic and intelligent editing of this superb work." - Bibliography of Systematic Mycology 10(6): xlviii-xlix. 1998.

"The publication of Teng's work now gives taxonomists easy access to the contributions of this remarkable scientist without having to undertake a fastidious searching in libraries." - Sydowia 48: 277-278. 1997.

"The book is important for any researcher interested in the systematic relationships, diversity, and distribution of fungi on a global scale." - New Zealand Journal of Botany 35: 265-266. 1997.

"An extensive index to all taxa ... makes this book readily accessible to the user. It should be present in every public and private mycological library." - Persoonia 16: 424. 1997.
