"Alrich and Higgins offer a comprehensive guide to the identification and taxonomic etymology of nearly 2550 color-coded orchid species, including fossilized and pre-Linnaean types in addition to invalidated variants. Paragraph-long entries are organized alphabetically by genus name and are accompanied either by drawings or full-color photographs. Excised from their backgrounds, the illustrations focus solely on contour and interior morphology, rather than surrounding environment. The book opens with a fascinating flora profile, including cellular diagrams, physiological descriptions, and a further reading list. Highly recommended for all botanical collections."―Library Journal
"The Marie Selby Botanical Gardens Illustrated Dictionary of Orchid Genera balances the needs of amateur orchid enthusiasts with those of the professional orchidologist, and its layout is very clean and easy to read. This book is not merely a list of names, nor is it a comprehensive treatment of the entire Orchidaceae. It is refreshingly something in between and 'just right' for the office or the home library."―Kenneth M. Cameron, Director, Wisconsin State Herbarium, and Associate Professor of Botany, University of Wisconsin–Madison
