Summary "In this fully comprehensive second edition, horticulturist and botanist David Jones describes all known species and illustrates them with over 1200 colour photographs and more than 200 highly detailed line drawings. To accommodate the vast increase in Australian orchid flora, this new edition has a completely new layout. This work will not only serve orchid botanists, horticulturalists and enthusiasts well as the most up-to-date, authoritative and definitive reference. It is also written for the general reader to enjoy. Botanical terms are kept to a minimum and a glossary explains any that are at all technical. The first part of the book provides general information about orchids, their biology and cultivation. Parts Two and Three consist of species entries organised alphabetically. The detailed index has been compiled with botanical and common names, as well as common and recent synonyms, to make finding a species easy." -- Publisher's website
