9780881924565: The Cattleyas and Their Relatives: A Book in Six Parts, Brassavola, Encyclia, and Other Genera of Mexico and Central America (Vol 5)

Cattleyas are frequently called "the Queen of the Orchids," and Carl Withner's passion for them started before World War II. About 12 years ago he published the first in this series of six books, which now comes to a conclusion with this final volume. The South American Encyclia species have not previously been the subject of a book, and the genus presents many problems and difficulties. A few of the species are known from a single herbarium specimen and may well now be extinct because of the continuing loss of habitat.

This volume also includes taxonomic and nomenclatural changes affecting species covered in the earlier volumes, as well as additions and changes to the text of each of the five volumes.

Book Description:

First announced ten years ago as "A Book in Six Parts," this monumental series is now almost complete. Although Cattleya is the best-known genus, other rewards & mysteries are to be found here-why, for example, Laelia should occur in Mexico & Central America & in Brazil, but not in Colombia & Venezuela linking the two regions. The latest book in this important series on cattleyas & their relatives is the largest volume yet, documenting 70 species in 15 genera, including Brassavola, very popular among growers, & continuing the discussion of Encyclia begun with the Caribbean species in Volume IV.

About the Author:

In 1990 Withner was granted the American Orchid Society's highest award, the Gold Medal, to honor his distinguished achievement in science and education. In 1996 the Orchid Digest Corporation awarded him its highest accolade, the Silver Medal for meritorious service to the orchid world. Dr. Withner lives in Bellingham, Washington, where he remains much occupied with orchid research, writing, and work with orchid societies.
