This magnificent new book is a major update of Wild Orchids of Southern Africa (Stewart et al, 1982). It describes all 466 species in 52 genera which occur in the southern African region, with most of the species illustrated with colour photos, and most of the genera by black and white line drawings. The geographical ranges of the species are shown by distribution maps, and the pollinator, habitat, flowering time and other information about the species are given. An essential reference for orchidologists and others interested in the flora of southern Africa.
