About this book

Over 80% of Australia's native orchid species are endemic. This book covers 150 of the most well known and widespread species as well as many that are extremely rare or were only recently described. These include both terrestrial and arboreal orchids from all parts of this fascinating continent. Includes anatomically exact illustrations. Closely related taxonomic groups are presented together, for easier comparison.

Vast in scope and amazing in detail, this comprehensive guide highlights a different type of orchid on each pair of beautifully designed pages... Banks' and Riley's passion for the native orchids of Australia has clearly resulted in one of today's finest contemporary orchid books. Well written and wonderfully illustrated, Orchids of Australia is one of the most interesting and beautiful guides available. The Botanical Artist
