About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and French

On Reunion Island, identification of orchids began in 1880 with the work of botanist Charles Frappier. He published at this time a provisional catalog that included only 145 species names, without any description. In 1895, Dr. Eugène Jacob Cordemoy continued this work and published a Flore de l’île de La Réunion..

Following these great botanists,
Orchidées de La Réunion presents one hundred and fifty-eight species with brief descriptive comments for proper identification of each. Numerous images illustrate each species, with, for each, a front and side view of the flower and a photo of the leaves. Additionally, several photographs of plants in their natural habitats are included for each species.

Summary in French:
Sur l’Ile de La Réunion, l’identification des orchidées a commencé en 1880 avec le travail du botaniste Charles Frappier. Il publia à cette époque un catalogue provisoire qui comprenait uniquement 145 noms d’espèces, sans aucune description. En 1895, le docteur Eugène Jacob de Cordemoy poursuivit ces travaux et publia une Flore de l’île de La Réunion.

A la suite de ces grands botanistes, le présent ouvrage propose de partir à la rencontre d’un patrimoine préservé et pourtant pour une très grande part encore méconnu du public. Il bénéficie d’une introduction du Professeur Jean Bosser, auteur de la Flore des Mascareignes.

Cent cinquante huit espèces y sont présentées, avec des commentaires descriptifs concis permettant une bonne identification de chacune d’elles. Les nombreuses images permettent d’illustrer chaque espèce, avec, pour chacune d’elle, la fleur vue de face, la fleur vue de profil et une photo de la feuille auxquelles s’ajoute plusieurs photographies des plantes dans leurs milieux naturels.
