A Complete Guide to Native Orchids of Australia

David L. Jones 2020

In the completely revised third edition of Native Orchids of Australia, David L. Jones has prepared the most comprehensive reference guide to Australian orchids.  Described by the author as the legacy of a lifetime’s study of Australian Orchids, the new work has been substantially expanded to cover the full range of terrestrial and epiphytic species, with 379 additional taxa included in this edition.

Detailed text covering full plant descriptions, distribution, habitat, notes and taxonomic information for all species is included.  Species are illustrated with outstanding colour images and the new edition also includes detailed scientific drawings of some species that have never previously been published.  These scientific drawings are cleverly presented to enhance species identification by comparing key features across multiple similar species.

This long awaited new edition includes updated information on the distribution and biology of Australian orchids, etymology of the scientific names used and explanations of taxonomic changes.

David’s lifetime obsession has culminated in this definitive work describing in detail, 1685 orchid taxa and featuring his amazingly detailed drawings.  The third edition of Native Orchids of Australia is the essential guide to the wonderful diversity of Australia’s unique orchid flora and is a must for any botanical enthusiast.
