    schema:reviewBody ""The Malayan Peninsula has a rich flora, including a large number of orchids. There are few regions in the world that can boast of more species. In this book, the author describes 50 genera with more than 130 species of indigenous Malayan orchids." "Nearly all the species treated in the text have at least one accompanying black-and-white photograph, and several are illustrated in full colour." "A simplified key to the genera is included, but this book is not intended as a field guide nor indeed as a complete guide to the Malayan orchid flora. The purpose of the author is rather to introduce the readers to genera and species that are less known than the commonly cultivated species of Coelogyne, Dendrobium, Cymbidium, etc., and also to let the readers share his enthusiasm for Malayan wild orchids." "The descriptions of the species are detailed, and therefore it has not been possible to avoid some use of botanic terminology. However all the terms used in this book, and many others as well, are explained in the comprehensive glossary of botanic terms."--BOOK JACKET." ;
