Nieuwe orchideeëntitels 2009

Bericht door Mark Meijrink »

Wanneer je regelmatig boeken bestelt via internet in het buitenland wordt je naderhand veelal bestookt met emails waar deze internet bedrijven speciaal voor jouw aanbiedingen hebben of titels voor jou hebben geselecteerd. Kortom een hoop onzin. Gelukkig zijn niet alle bedrijven zo. Hieronder volgt een lijstje wat ik binnen kreeg. Het bevat recentelijk verschenen orchideeëntitels welke ik graag met jullie wil delen.

The Orchids of Ireland
Tom Curtis and Robert Thompson
A book for naturalists, biologists, gardeners and all those who have an interest in this fascinating and attractive group of wild Irish plants and wish to improve their identification skills in the field. The first part of the book includes an introduction to Irish orchids and covers their morphology, the structure of the orchid flower, vegetative parts, the habitats of the species in Ireland and their conservation. Comprehensive accounts of all species, subspecies and varieties follow, with their key identification features described, particular attention being paid to providing clear guidelines to the identification of the difficult genera of the Helleborines, Dactylorchids and the subspecies of the Fragrant orchid. The book is copiously illustrated throughout with stunning photographs of all the Irish species and their habitats, which are complemented by colour and half-tone illustrations of the flowers and morphological features of Irish orchids.

Hardcover, 160 pages, 27 -, euro

Wild Orchids in the Algarve
Sue Parker
Few places in Europe can rival the Algarve for diversity of habitat, and so not surprisingly the range of wild orchids found in the Algarve is quite outstanding. Go to the right places at the right time of year, and the most amazing orchid sights will greet you. This beautifully illustrated book answers the questions what, when and where. Sue Parker has had a life-long passion for wild orchids, and she is often called upon to give wild orchid talks in many countries. From her home on the Algarve she has made a detailed study of the habitats and hotspots preferred by the species of wild orchids that occur there.

68 pages, 100 col photos, 11-, euro

The Bee Orchids of Greece: The Genus Ophrys
Zissis Antonopoulos
The self-sowing (wild) orchids are amongst the most admired plants of the world, with the Greek species numbering almost 200. Of these, a little more than half belong to the Ophrys genus, the only one in which the attraction of insect pollinators is accomplished through the sexual deception of certain species of male insects. In this book, 124 species, subspecies and varieties of the Ophrys genus are presented, with descriptions which are accompanied by more than 650 photographs.

Hardcover, 320 pages, 650 photos, 86-, euro
