Orchids of the British Isles
Author: Foley, Michael (text) : Clarke, Sidney (photography) : Alexander, Crinan (contr.) : Grimshaw, John (contr.) : Tattersall, Barry (contr.) : Taylor, Ian (contr.):
Publisher: Cheltenham, Griffin Press Ltd., 2005. (1st Edition)

xvii + 390pp with numerous full colour illus. This book is published in association with The Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh and combines authoritative information with magnificent photography to celebrate the wild orchids of Great Britain and Ireland. It links the observations of early botanists to the most up-to-date research, surveying four hundred years of fascination with these charismatic and often threatened plants. Each of the 55 orchid species recorded from the British Isles, is described in full, with detailed information given on botanical history, biology, habitats and conservation requirements. Numerous variants and hybrids are also discussed and illustrated. Close-up photography reveals the details of individual flowers, while plant portraits and habitat studies complete the account of each species. Supporting the species accounts are chapters explaining orchid biology, taxonomy, identification, ecology and distribution. Special attention is given to conservation - effective management of habitats and population will be essential if we are to continue to enjoy our native orchids - and also to cultivation, introducing practical approaches to encouraging orchids in gardens. Finally, complementing the extraordinary images that appear throughout the book is a chapter giving detailed advice on techniques for success when photographing orchids. Anyone who enjoys the countryside and its wild plants will find this book an essential companion in seeking and identifying the native orchids of the British Isles."
