By Dennis E. Desjardin, Michael G. Wood, and Frederick A. Stevens
Dennis Desjardin is Professor of Biology at San Francisco State University, where he received his master's degree under the supervision of the late Harry Thiers, to whom the book is dedicated.
Upon Harry's retirement, Dennis
was hired as his
successor and has carried on the Thiers tradition of research on fungus systematics and award-winning teaching.
Mike Wood and Fred Stevens are long-time members of the Mycological Society of San Francisco who also were influenced heavily by Thiers and have played important roles in the annual field course held at the University's Sierra Nevada Field Campus, both during the Thiers years and later during the courses taught by Desjardin.
Wood and Stevens provided the bulk of the photos, with Desjardin
and 21 other photographers contributing additional images.

MykoWebâ€”Mushrooms of Hawai'i
By Don E. Hemmes & Dennis E. Desjardin
During times when there is a dearth of good new mushroom books, it is a pleasure to peruse the fine new book by Don E. Hemmes and Dennis E. Desjardin
, Mushrooms of Hawai'i: an identification guide.
Dr. Hemmes is professor of biology at the University of Hawai'i in Hilo and Dr. Desjardin is professor of biology at San Francisco State University and scientific advisor for the Mycological Society of San Francisco.
A research project funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation
formed the basis of Desjardin & Hemmes' knowledge
of the mycota of Hawaiian Islands.
Before this project, relatively little was known about the mushrooms and other macrofungi of Hawai'i.
