About this book

As yet, a comprehensive natural classification of the orchid family does not exist. This major new book goes part of the way toward filling this gap. It includes analysis of several major groups, and identifies areas in need of more work. There is also much emphasis on the new work on chromosome numbers and pollination. A list of generic names and important synonyms is given, with approximate numbers of species in each genus.
