About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Spanish

Few – if any – straightforward field guides on the subject have been written for a general audience. Orchids, Cacti and Bromeliads of the Dry Forest - Costa Rica partially fills the gap, covering the Area de Conservacion Tempisque and the Area de Conservacion Guanacaste, in Costa Rica's northern province of Guanacaste. It also seeks to convey the importance of protecting orchid populations in their natural state and the need to reduce illegal sales of these plants.

Summary in Spanish:
La presencia de guías de campo sencillas, dirigidas a un público amplio y diverso, es casi inexistente. Esta obra trata de llenar ese vacío, al menos en forma parcial, con respecto a una zona determinada, el área de Conservación Tempisque y el área de Conservación Guanacaste, en la norteña provincia de Guanacaste. También intenta transmitir la importancia de proteger las poblaciones de orquídeas en su estado natural y la necesidad de detener su comercio ilegal.
