About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Spanish

The first of three proposed volumes on the orchids of Bolivia, this is an authoritative reference with excellent photographs, illustrations and helpful appendices providing a checklist of valid species and synonyms, a species index and other data on distribution and species of conservation concern. Where appropriate, text is shown in parallel Spanish and English. Introductory chapters provide information on the history of orchidology in Bolivia and biogeography.
'In this bilingual tome Roberto Vasquez and Pierre Ibisch have compiled a comprehensive treasure trove of interesting and valuable information that is not readily available to the novice, or even to the professional botanist.' Carlyle A.Luer, Senior Curator of the herbarium, Missouri Botanical Garden
