About this book

The Proceedings of the 17th World Orchid Conference Sustaining Orchids for the Future 2002 is widely reckoned as one of the most well-produced proceedings of World Orchid Conferences held hitherto. It is beautifully illustrated by 76 colour plates and numerous black-and-white illustrations and comes complete with a list of Conference registrants and their addresses.

The contents include many interesting papers and reports, organized under sections for Keynote Addresses, Structure and Classification, Regional Accounts, Population Biology and Conservation Aspects, Horticulture, In-Vitro Propagation and Vase Life, Biotechnology, and Abstracts. This is a must for serious orchidologists.
