Western Australia contains an abundance of orchid delights. Names such as hammer, duck, spider, dragon and fairy, highlight evolutionary wanderings that evoke intrigue.

Written by three of Western Australia's most prominent orchidologists, and featuring over 200 full-page, colour illustrations by renowned botanical artist Pat Dundas, this long-awaited volume is the first modern text cataloguing all known species of Western Australia.

Focusing on the state's two orchid regions - the South-West and the Kimberley - and presenting a selection of hybrid orchids often mistaken for new species, Orchids of Western Australia is a comprehensive resource for botanists, hardened enthusiasts and initiates alike.

Never before has such a wealth of information on Western Australian orchids been available in a single tome.
