Orchids of Tropical America is an entertaining, informative, and splendidly illustrated introduction to the orchid family ranging from Mexico and the Caribbean to Bolivia and Brazil.

Orchids reach their peak diversity in the tropical countries of the Western Hemisphere, including more than 2,500 species in Brazil and 4,000 in Ecuador. This book also highlights reserves in the American tropics where travellers can enjoy orchids in the wild.

Whether you journey abroad to see these unique plants, raise them in your home, or admire them from afar, this book offers fascinating insights into the diversity and natural history of orchids.

Beyond the plant and flower descriptions, this book is packed with informative stories about the ecology and history of each genus. Pollination ecology is given in detail, with an emphasis on how floral features distinctive to the genus are linked to interaction with pollinators.

This book also features information on medicinal and commercial uses, notes on the discoverers, and relevant historical data.
