The genus Ophrys constitutes one of the most diverse and biologically fascinating groups of plants to be encountered in Europe, particularly the Mediterranean.This book offers an easy to use, comprehensive, introduction to the genus, throughout its European range, It can be used as a field guide, with keys, descriptions and numerous colour photographs, as well as a standard reference, with chapters on structure, biology, evoltuion and conservation. The classification is based on a broad species concept, offering an alternative to the finely split classifications of the genus that prevail in most recent field guides. Notes on hardy orchid cultivation, by Richard L. Manuel, and a chapter of ideas for field trips, complete the picture.
