The Rust Fungi of the British Isles: A Guide to Identification by their Host Plants

The work consists of an alphabetical list of plant genera within their families (old style, eg Compositae, rather than Asteraceae. Also Conifers are under "Coniferae" and ferns are united into "Polypodiaceae s.l."). For each genus, the rust species are listed with their spore stages, distinguishing features and host species. Alternate hosts have separate entries and are cross-referenced to the other hosts.

An appendix provides updates and corrections to the 2000 Rust Checklist of the same author.
