9780521451659: Terrestrial Orchids: From Seed to Mycotrophic Plant

Terrestrial orchids have a wide appeal, but unfortunately they rank among the most vulnerable of all plant species, and little is known about how they reproduce in nature. This book contains a detailed survey of the biology of terrestrial orchids, from seed dispersal to establishment and life of the adult plant, based on comparisons of field and culture experiments. The unusual mode of obtaining energy by means of mycorrhiza is examined and evaluated in terms of plant structure and functions, and the impact of this mycotrophic nutrition on orchid evolution. The book makes it clear that an understanding of germination, life histories and seasonal phenology in natural habitats is essential for the success of culture methods, propagation and conservation. The final chapter is a systematic presentation of the life history, endophytes, and propagation of 36 genera of terrestrial orchids. Environmental plant physiologists will find this a stimulating book; for all those who are involved in orchid horticulture the book is indispensable.

The author surveys the seed biology, propagation, plant growth, fungal associations, seasonal rhythm and life history of 36 genera of orchids of the temperate, northern hemisphere.Stimulating for physiological botanists and essential for orchid horticulturists.

Review:

"Anyone seriously interested in terrestrial orchids, their development, mycotrophy, ecology, and culture can ill afford not to use Hanne Rasmussen's book as a vade mecum." William Louis Stern, HortScience

"The book can be recommended to all those working and/or interested in terrestrial orchids of the Northern Hemisphere." Robert Ernst, Plant Science Bulletin
