About this book

Few places in Europe can rival the Algarve for diversity of habitat, and so not surprisingly the range of wild orchids found in the Algarve is quite outstanding. Go to the right places at the right time of year, and the most amazing orchid sights will greet you. This beautifully illustrated book answers the questions what, when and where.

Sue Parker has had a life-long passion for wild orchids, and she is often called upon to give wild orchid talks in many countries. From her home on the Algarve she has made a detailed study of the habitats and hotspots preferred by the species of wild orchids that occur there. Through this book the author shares this information with visitors to the Algarve as well as residents keen to learn more about the region's wonderful natural heritage.
