About this book

Sumatra is the largest island which is wholly owned by Indonesia, and is about three times the size of Java. So far 139 genera and 1118 species are known to occur on Sumatra and its surrounding, smaller islands, although some are only known from the original collection and distribution. Many (664) photographs have been included and botanical descriptions are as complete as possible and supplemented by 70 line drawings. Orchids of Sumatra was written after the author’s retirement in 1991 and is the result of extensive research at Kew and a two month survey of orchids found in the Gunung Leuser National Park in North Sumatra.
