About this book

The genus Ophrys, the charismatic bee orchids, constitutes one of the most diverse and biologically fascinating groups of plants to be encountered in Europe, particularly the Mediterranean.

This book offers an easy to use, comprehensive introduction to the genus Ophrys throughout its European range. It can be used as a field guide (with keys, descriptions and numerous colour photographs) as well as a standard reference (with chapters on structure, biology, evolution and conservation). The classification is based on a broad species concept, and offers an alternative to the finely split classifications of the genus that prevail in most recent field guides.

Finally, the chapter 'recommended Ophrys excursions' is ideal for planning field trips, and a chapter contributed by Richard L. Manuel gives ample guidelines for cultivation.
