Description

Australia's flora boasts over 1,200 species of orchid -- fascinating and varied plants -- the majority of which are not found anywhere else in the world. In this guide, David and Barbara Jones describe 268 species to help the dedicated orchid enthusiast and the causal bushwalker to identify many of the commoner, and some of the special, orchids in the field. A straightforward description is given for each orchid, detailing its overall distribution, flowering period and habitat together with a full-colour photograph.
