About this book

Texas is home to some of the rarest orchid species in the world. From the Big Thicket to the Big Bend, from the Panhandle to the coastal plain, Field Guide to the Wild Orchids of Texas is the first native orchid field guide to cover each of the Lone Star State's eco-regions.

This valuable and comprehensive resource covers more than 50 species and orchid varieties, several of which are new to Texas and, in some cases, even brand-new to the orchid world. It includes all the essential tools – field photographs, diagnostic line drawings, and useful reference keys – to quickly and easily identify an orchid discovered in the wild. A checklist of the state's wild orchids and charts listing optimal flowering times and distribution by region make Field Guide to the Wild Orchids of Texas user-friendly year-round.

In addition to the many insider orchid-hunting tips, botanist Paul Martin Brown recommends trip itineraries offering the fullest viewing of native orchids at their peak seasons.

Media reviews

Clear and concise text, easy-to-use keys, breathtaking photography, exquisite line drawings, and easily tucked into your backpack! What more could one ask of this nifty field guide? - Helen Jeude, Botanical Research Institute of Texas "An outstanding addition to previous similar works by the same author-artist team. However, this work and the others are much more than mere 'field guides'! They clarify and update information regarding the orchid flora of the United States.... The 'where-to-look-for-orchids' portion alone may be worth more than the price of the book." - Dr. Robert J. Ferry, McAllen (Texas) International Orchid Society"
