Orchid watch in the UK, 14 April 2011
For virtually anyone interested in native orchids in the BI this is a fantastic book for helping identify them, and more iportantly (and no other book does this), where to go and see them. Some people may disagree with giving locations of where these beautiful flowers grow at their best, but 99.99999% of readers of the book will want to help protect them, not destroy them. The book also gives the most detailed information about past and present distributions, and thus how many have suffered drastic losses in the past 2 centuries. Very good indeed - would die for a similar book that covered orchids say in the Med islnds, France or many other countries for that matter!!
