The Genus Coelogyne: A Synopsis

£40.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

320 pages. First edition 2002. Clean laminated boards. pages are glossy, crisp, clean and free of any markings. Slight creasing to top and bottom of spine. Dust jacket present. Again light creasing to top of jacket and to the top and bottom of spine. Very light foxing on top of block. Signed by author on first free end paper.

Coelogne is a large genus of Asiatic orchids widely distributed from India and Sri Lanka across southern Asia and Malaya Archipelago to the Philippines, New guinea and the south-west Pacific Islands. the genus , as currently conceived, comprises some 190 species, two subspecies and 12 varieties.

This account, the first for over 90 years since that of Pfitzer and Kraenzlin (1907), attempts to summarise all of the available information on the genus. the author re-asses sectional limits, and provides keys to the sections, species and infraspecific taxa. Distribution maps are provided for each section. he also provides a comprehensive account of each species, that includes a full description, distribution, habitat , altitudinal range, flowering time and taxonomic notes. Most of the species are illustrated by one or more colour photographs and a black-and-white line drawing of the lip, a critical feature in the genus, is provided for almost every species.

Most orchid growers have at least one 'Coelogyne' in their collection. this book will certainly whet readers' appetites for more of these beautiful orchids. the author provides detailed information on how to grow coelogynes and on their hybridisation, based on his extensive experience cultivating them in his own collection.
