"The Carpologia at the time of its publication (1861-1865) was an epoch-making work and [is] one of the great mycological classics. Its primary purpose was to demonstrate the pleomorphism of the Ascomycetes which had been denied by some contemporary mycologists. In the Carpologica we have the most detailed descriptions and the best illustrations of the morphology and life-history of the Ascomycetes yet produced" (Editors' preface).
