This is the first complete reference guide for Greek orchids, and includes all the wild taxa occurring in the country. In total, 212 species and subspecies are described, with extensive analysis of the most recent taxonomic opinions and controversies based on the current literature.
Orchids of Greece includes two parts: a general section, which presents facts about Greek nature and flora, as well as aspects of orchid biology and conservation; and the species descriptions, grouped by genera. The descriptions are codified and simplified, while special emphasis has been given to key-points that will facilitate identification in the field. Three colour photographs, illustrating the complete plant, the inflorescence, and the flowers, accompany each taxon description. Where needed, additional photographs present all their variation. In total, 888 photographs illustrate the taxa, as well as their habitats, hybrids and intermediate forms, and aberrant individuals with colour and shape anomalies.
A reference list, glossary, and species index, including synonyms, are presented after the taxa descriptions.
