I. Philosophical Statement about FUNGUS
FUNGUS has been designed as a vehicle for mushroom growers (both hobbyists
and professionals) and interested parties can have one more Internet access
point, for dissemination of information and for discussions relating to
the cultivation of edible and other fungi.  Conceiveable, there will be
a variety of commercial entities publicized and involved.  This is meant to
be a practical approach to cultivation.

II.  Important Non-Internet Resources for the Mushroom Grower
This FREE Internet tool is IN NO WAY meant to replace/supplant other
resources.  I suggest all growers utilize this partial list of resources
<please let me know of add'l resources I should include)

BOOKS:
There are many fine mushroom cultivation books.  In the opinion of the 
moderator, all growers should own "Growing Gourmet & Medicinal Mushrooms"
by Paul Stamets (c) 1993 Ten Speed Press ISBN 0-89815-608-4
