The third edition of this definitive handbook on orchid cultivation incorporates major revisions in taxonomy, text, and illustrations. An authoritative resource for professional and amateur orchid growers and botanists for more than a decade, this edition of The Manual of Cultivated Orchid Species adds 24 pages of color photographs of species - 144 new photographs plus 96 replacement shots - and 62 line drawings. The sections on taxonomy have been substantially expanded to include updated treatments of orchid biology, diversity, and classification, and new species of spectacular cultural merit are described.
