Description

This field guide to temperate West Australian orchids is designed to be user friendly by limiting the use of terminology in keys and using visual guides to species, but also aims to make identification as accurate as possible. For each species, a brief description focuses on defining features with the majority of space used for photos that clearly show identifying features.

There are over 1500 photographs including many focus-stacked images that reveal intricate floral details. It also provides detailed information on the pollination, ecology, cultivation, conservation and taxonomy of these orchids.
