      Your study sounds very interesting even to a sporadic and amateur
mushroomer like me.  Might I suggest that you put together a brief summary
of your findings and publish it in a magazine such as "Mushroom - the
Journal".  "Mushroom" is read by a range of mycologists from professionals
to rank amateurs and such an article might garner you a few more customers
for the book.
