About this book

This thorough and exhaustive botanical classic by the late Professor Oakes Ames, director of the Botanical Museum of Harvard University, and Donovan Stewart Correll, formerly Research Associate at that museum, presents all the known orchids of Guatemala and Belize (formerly British Honduras).

A total of 527 species of orchids and 25 varieties in 89 genera comprise this monumental study. All of the genera are illustrated, as well more than one hundred additional species in 204 accurate black-and-white illustrations. Detailed entries for each orchid give distinguishing characteristics, color, flower descriptions, precise measurements, natural habitat, soil conditions and more.

Originally published by the Chicago Natural History Museum in two volumes and a supplement and out of print for many years. Orchids of Guatemala and Belize is now accessible in one practical, affordable edition. Botanists, students, teachers and anyone interested in nature and the extraordinary beauty of orchids will find this volume indispensable for study and reference.
