Orchids of Britain and Ireland: A Field and Site Guide

Orchids of Britain and Ireland: A Field and Site Guide

Simon Harrap Anne Harrap

A field guide featuring over 370 colour photographs, 49 distribution maps and a site guide to 330 places to go and see wild orchids. Covers all 56 species of wild orchid found in Britain and Ireland.

Orchids have long held a fascination, both for keen botanists and the general public. From the mania of Victorian collectors to the enthusiasm of modern photographers, this family of flowering plants has a strange and exotic appeal. Many orchids are beautiful, and some are rare.

This well illustrated orchid guide covers the identification, biology and conservation of British and Irish orchids. Until recently, the whereabouts of the rarer species was shrouded in secrecy, making publication of any details ethically impossible. In the last few years, however, these veils have been lifted and it is now possible to publish locations for all but one or two species. For the first time, this book includes a detailed site guide, covering the best places to see orchids in Britain.

"This book is a comprehensive guide to Britain's most glamorous plants. I cannot imagine being without it."
