Summary in Chinese:
     《 台湾原生植物全图鉴第二卷:兰科(恩普莎兰属)──灯心草科》介绍天门冬目中恩普莎兰属后所有的兰科与刺叶树科、棕榈目中的棕榈科、禾本目中的莎草科、谷精草科至灯心草科为止,共收录7科555种植物。
 
       台湾地处欧亚大陆与太平洋间,北回归线横跨本岛中部,加以海拔高度变化甚大,植被自然分化成热带、亚热带、温带及寒带等区域,小小的一个岛上,孕育了维管束植物多达4,000余种,是地球上重要的生物资科库。
        台湾的植物爱好者众,民众从图鉴入门,识别植物,乃是最直接途径;坊间虽已有各类植物图鉴,但无论种类之搜集或编排之系统性,均尚有缺憾。有鉴于此,钟诗文君,十年来披星戴月,奔走于全岛原野与森林,亲自观察、记录并拍摄所有植物的影像,并赋与正确的学名,已达4,000余种,并加以详细描述撰写,真可谓工程浩大,毅力惊人。
        这套台湾原生植物的科普图鉴,每个物种除描述其最易识别的特征外,并佐以淸晰的照片,既适合初学者,也是专业研究人员不可或缺的参考书;书中作者特别贴心的为读者标出每一物种与相似种的差异,使初学者更易入门。本书为了完整性及完备性,作者拍摄了每一种植物的叶及花部特征,并鉴之分类文献及标本,以力求每一物种学名之正确性。更加难得是,本图鉴也拍摄到许多台湾文献上从未被记录的稀有植物影像,对专业研究人员来说也是极珍贵的参考资料。
在我们生活的周遭,甚或田野、海边、山区到处都有植物,认识观察它们,进而欣赏它们,透过植物自然美,你会发现认识植物也是个身心安顿的良方。好的植物图鉴,可以让你容易进入植物的世界,这本『台湾原生植物全图鉴』,已完整呈现台湾原生的各种植物,内容详实,影像拍摄精美,栩栩如生,跃然纸上,所以这是一套值得您永远珍藏拥有的图鉴。
