Botanist La Croix (editor, The Orchid Review, Royal Horticultural Society) draws on fieldwork and on work at Kew Royal Botanic Gardens to present detailed profiles of some 1500 cultivated species of orchids in 350 genera from Acampe to Zygostates. In addition to providing general information about orchid cultivation, she updates plant names per the Kew Genera Orchidacearum project that reflects the latest taxonomic thinking and recent developments in DNA analysis. The volume includes a preface by retired Kew curator Phillip Cribb, stunning photographs by Manual Aubron, a glossary, bibliography, and indexing by common and scientific name. The author grows tropical African orchids, her specialty, in a greenhouse in Scotland. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
