About this book

Language: French

This is the original French version of Orchids of Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.

More than 600 species and many varieties of orchids are described and illustrated. After a presentation of the morphology of orchids, accompanied by an identification key down to genus level, each species is presented following a fixed outline, describing etymology, description, bloom, habitat, distribution, country, and taxonomy. The species covered also include hybrids and aberrant individuals.

This fourth edition of the guide includes a general section which describes the anatomy, reproduction, and extraordinary strategies developed by these plants to attract insects and the latest knowledge on species classification.

Summary in French:
Plus de 600 espèces et de nombreuses variétés d'orchidées sont décrites et illustrées. Après une présentation de la morphologie des orchidées, accompagnée d'une clé d'identification permettant la reconnaissance du genre, chaque espèce est présentée selon un plan et des rubriques constantes : étymologie, description, floraison, habitat, répartition, pays, description taxinomique. Les espèces abordées comprennent également des hybrides et des individus aberrants.

Cette quatrième mise à jour du guide inclut une partie générale qui décrit l’anatomie, la reproduction, les extraordinaires stratégies développées par ces plantes pour attirer les insectes et les connaissances les plus récentes en matière de classification des espèces.
