Wild Orchids of Florida, Updated and Expanded Edition


First published in 2002, Wild Orchids of Florida was the very first field guide for this orchid-rich state, and it inspired many to try their hand at orchid hunting. Because of its overwhelming popularity and in an attempt to provide the latest developments in orchid research, native orchid expert Paul Martin Brown follows up with this newly revised and expanded edition.

The guide contains 200 new points of fact, including:
• more than 100 new county records established since 2002
• three recently rediscovered species that have not been seen in 100 years
• two previously undocumented species, six new hybrids, and several new color forms described and illustrated for the first time
• the resurrection and revalidation of the little-used genus of Gymnadeniopsis
• 34 revised county distribution maps, 37 new color photos, and three new watercolors by Stan Folsom

With its comprehensive yet easy-to-follow treatment, Wild Orchids of Florida remains the essential field companion for professional botanists, native plant enthusiasts, nature lovers, or anyone who wants to learn more about what’s growing out in the wilds of Florida.
