Media reviews

"Genera Orchidacearum is the first work to treat the whole of the orchids in a modern form based on molecular data from nearly all of the more than 800 genera. [...] As in the former volumes, layout is very clear [...] The photographs are without exception good and informative, in many cases excellent [...] The distribution maps are very clear, and easy to interpret. [...] excellent book [...] it is an absolute requirement for the professional orchidologist as a reference work. It fills a gap because no other up-to-date systematic treatment of Orchidaceae down to generic level is available in English, and I am quite sure that no comparable work will be published during the next few decades."
