Reviews - What do customers think about A Field Guide to the Wild Orchids of Thailand?

appreciate the help this book is for U  Apr 11, 2000
You will find this book on every market in Thailand, all the gardeners explaining the English and Thai name to the customers, and the specifics to identify the orchids. Check literature on orchids and you will not find what you are looking for because of thousands of identified and not yet described species. Use this book with marvellous fotos as your field guide, appreciating the work done by Khun Nantiya. For every flower loving traveler to Thailand !
Many pictures of species but lacks proper descriptions  Apr 18, 1999
As it says in the title, this book was meant as a field guide to orchid species indigenous to Thailand. Two hundred sixty-four species are covered, including many obscure genera like Brachycorythis Pelatantheria, and Tainia. More popular genera are also represented (e.g. 63 Dendrobium species). The book is primarily a visual guide that may aid growers in identifying their plants as the text is limited to the Thai name, locality, month of flowering, size and number of flowers. No details on cultivation are given. Readers used to "Field Guides" written in the US or Europe will be also disappointed by a lack of specific information regarding how to find any of the orchids illustrated in their native habitat.
