Kurzweil, Hubert and Saw Lwin.

Myanmar contains over 800 different species of orchid flora, which is a reflection of the country’s varied topography and climate. Following a long period of political isolation the Myanmar orchids are among the least known in tropical mainland Asia. This book highlights the diversity found in the orchids that are growing in the wild in Myanmar. After short introductory chapters, with general notes on the country and its orchid flora, 116 selected examples of Myanmar orchid species are described and illustrated. Many of the photographs were taken in the wild, while several others originated in cultivation. It also provides an identification key to the groups of orchids found here, as well as a preliminary checklist of the species recorded so far.
