About this book

The orchid family is one of the largest plant families in the world, reaching its highest diversity in the tropics where their exotic and colourful flowers are often truly breathtaking. Britain and Ireland have just 56 species of wild orchid, some of which are rare or scarce, whilst others are surprisingly inconspicuous. Yet, whether large or small, all orchids share flamboyant flower structures and incredible beauty.

This new Pocket Guide covers all 56 species of British and Irish orchids, with concise text, breathtaking colour photographs and accurate range maps based on maps compiled by the Biological Records Centre. The book is derived from the highly acclaimed Orchids of Britain and Ireland: A Field and Site Guide by the same authors.
