About this book

Language: French

This book provides an insight into the incredible diversity of orchids in Guyana. It covers 130 genera and more than 350 species, all of which are treated and illustrated with more than 1,200 illustrations.

Orchids have magnificent flowers, but their flowering is fleeting when it is not hidden in the foliage of the rainforest. The illustrations show a collection of shapes and colours rarely seen that make up the richness of Guyanese biodiversity. This book is indeed the fruit of dozens of years of prospecting, sample collection and cultivation. The work presented here is based on a body of unpublished knowledge which is of inestimable value.

Given the quality of its photographs, this book is aimed at all lovers of Guyanese nature, but it is also a precious tool for botanists and orchidophiles, because it fills a large gap. There is no doubt that this book will be a benchmark for many years to come.

Summary in French:
Cet ouvrage permet d’aborder l’incroyable diversité des orchidées de Guyane. Il couvre 130 genres et plus de 350 espèces qui sont toutes traitées et illustrées par plus de 1 200 illustrations.

Les orchidées possèdent des fleurs magnifiques, mais leur floraison est fugace, quand elle ne se dissimule pas dans les frondaisons de la forêt tropicale. Les illustrations nous montrent une collection de formes et de couleurs rarement observée qui font la richesse de la biodiversité guyanaise. Ce livre est en effet le fruit de dizaines d’années de prospections, de collectes d’échantillons et de mise en culture. L’ouvrage présenté ici se base sur une somme de connaissances inédites qui possède une valeur inestimable.

Par la qualité de ses photographies, cet ouvrage s’adresse à tous les passionnés de la nature guyanaise, mais c’est aussi un outil précieux pour les botanistes et les orchidophiles, car il vient combler une grande lacune. Nul doute qu’il constituera une référence pour de nombreuses années.
