About this book

A high quality, comprehensive guide to native orchid species of the Australian Capital Territory. Principal author David Jones is a respected authority on Australian orchids. He has made a special study of the orchids of the local region, describing many new species. Field guide to Orchids of the Australian Capital Territory contains excellent colour photographs, large botanical illustrations and full descriptions of the 121 species found in the ACT. Specific local distribution notes will aid the ACT orchid hunter. Broader distribution notes for Australia and overseas will assist those looking for orchids in similar habitats elsewhere. Additional features include a distribution map, glossary and notes on understanding orchids, their habitats and reproduction. Cross-referencing of previous and current nomenclature is particularly useful.
