There are perhaps as many as 25,000 kinds of orchids, some of them the objects of obsession, as documented in Susan Orlean’s The Orchid Thief (1999), and some of them endangered because of overcollecting. This guide provides facts on 300 species, hybrids, varieties, and cultivars, selected “both for their availability and as wide-ranging representatives of the genre.” Color photographs are accompanied by information about form, distribution, habitat, and cultivation. --Mary Ellen Quinn
