British Rust Fungi
Rusts have the most complex life-cycles of any fungus, and the introduction consists mainly of discussion of life-cycles.
This is followed by the key to genera, mainly based on teliospore. In practice this is not usually useful as telia are often absent - rusts are generally identified from the host plant.
The species accounts are begin with descriptions and line drawings of the various spore types, followed by a general discussion on the species and the history of our knowledge.
Host latin names are included in the index, which offer the main route to identification.
