Orchidaceae are the largest family of flowering plants, containing approximately 800 genera and 27,000 species, of which not a few are world-famous for their charming flowers such as some species of Phalaenopsis, Cymbidium, Dendrobium, Cattleya, Oncidium, Paphiopedilum, Pleione, etc. In the present book, an attempt is made to include as many these wild species as possible in the hope that it will be a useful and convenient reference book for orchidologists, especially orchid breeders and growers. There are altogether 372 genera, 1833 species, 2 subspecies and 28 varieties included in Wild Orchids of Ornamental Importance. All the species selected here are briefly described in both Chinese and English, and each is provided with one or two colour photographs. The descriptions and illustrations are placed close to each other, and the species are arranged in alphabetical order according to scientific names, in order to make it easier for orchid professionals and enthusiasts to identify their plants.
