This fourth volume treats the first 210 genera of the largest subfamily, Epidendroideae, including some of the showiest orchids often used in hybridizing. Comprehensive treatments are provided for each genus, which include complete nomenclature, description, distribution (with map), anatomy, palynology, cytogenetics, phytochemistry, phylogenetics, pollination, ecology, and economic uses. Cultivation notes are included for those genera known to be in hobbyist collections. Genera are beautifully illustrated with line drawings and colour photographs.

Media reviews

"39 different botanists from nine different countries are listed as contributing authors in this newest volume of the series. This fact alone says a great deal about the importance of this book and its value to orchidology. [...] an absolute must have for anyone interested in orchid biology [...] an organized, easily readable and attractive book. I strongly encourage both orchid scientists and general orchid enthusiasts to consider purchasing Volume 4 of Genera Orchidacearum"
– Ken Cameron, The New York Botanical Garden, AOS Magazine 2006
