The compilation of photographs of more than 150 species of Cuba's orchids will allow those who are not regular visitors to regions where these wonders live, or those who do not notice many of these species due to their small size, to enjoy the beauty of this group of plants, a genuine treasure of the Cuban flora.
Includes basic information on how to recognize and where to look for the species, how the flowering responds to the diverse environmental factors, and which mechanisms they use, even sometimes with very specialized flowers, to ensure pollination.
Also included are a glossary and an appendix with an updated list of all the species of orchids that have been found in Cuba; the flowering season for those with confirmed phenological data; and their distribution in the five regions they are grouped.
