Mordecai Cubitt Cooke

Mordecai Cubitt Cooke, who took over Berkeley's role in England, was another of the European mycologists with an interest in non-European species. Cooke and his compatriot George Massee (1850-1917) described the bulk of the new species found in the specimens Mueller sent to Kew and published their results in a series of papers. Cooke gathered all the available information about Australian fungi in his monograph, Handbook of Australian Fungi, which appeared in 1892. This was the first comprehensive account on the Australian fungi and gave brief descriptions of all the species thus far found in Australia.
