Written by three of Western Australia's most prominent orchidologists and featuring over 200 full-page, color illustrations by renowned botanical artist Pat Dundas, this long-awaited volume is the first modern text cataloging all known species of orchids in Western Australia. It is a comprehensive resource for hardened enthusiasts and initiates alike. Never before has such a wealth of information on Western Australian orchids been available in a single book. Along with a detailed introduction to Western Australian orchids, it contains: species placed in taxonomic groupings to make it easier to differentiate between those that are closely related . information on each species, including who named them and where they were first collected . their habitat, distribution, flowering period, size, and distinguishing features . illustrations of the entire plant with flowers, stems, and leaves rendered in exquisite detail, making it easier to correctly identify the orchid (all illustrations reduced from life-size, using a common scale, allowing realistic size comparisons between species).
