Description

The principle purpose of this book is to provide an accurate and easy means of identifying the native orchids of this region. There is an excellent description of each orchid in which the distinctive features of each species and information on distribution, habitat, flowering period and the common name is provided. For every orchid there is also a colour photograph and map of its distribution. Orchids of South-West Australia is a must for all professional and amateur orchidologists.

About the Authors:
Noel Hoffman is a retired School Principal who has had a lifelong passion for native orchids. In his early years little information was available to assist in identification of these plants, this lead to the first edition of 'Orchids of South-West Australia' in 1974.

Andrew Brown is a Research Associate at the Western Australian Herbarium specialising in the Colchicaceae, Orchidaceae and Scrophulariaceae and a foundation member of the Australian Orchid Foundation and the Western Australian Native Orchid Study and Conservation Group.

Justin Brown has a degree in environmental biology and is a keen orchid enthusiast with an extensive knowledge of the distribution and growth requirements if native orchids. He is an excellent photographer and built up a superb website of orchids he has recorded during his many field trips.
