Over the past ten years, the orchid industry has been growing at a steady pace in South-East Asia and East Asia. In some Asian countries, orchids have become an essential export item. To maintain this progress, there is an urgent need for a book that will help the region's orchid growers in improving their cultivation and management skills, and guide new students in understanding orchid physiology. This book provides a comprehensive description of tropical orchid physiology relevant to commercial growers, research workers and graduate students. An integrated and unifying theme of tropical orchid physiology, with a clearly written factual text as well as illustrations, is presented over nine chapters. Each chapter is designed to provide comprehensive and up-to-date information on a particular aspect of orchid physiology. This book complements the existing scientific literature available for improving orchid cultivation and setting a new research agenda, especially in the tropics.

..". appears to be the first such volume devoted exclusively to orchid physiology ... Such books which deal with the relevance of orchid science to commercial cultivation are hard to find. The book is an excellent contribution to orchid biology and offers delightful reading supported with beautiful illustrations and photographs. The orchid cultivators, especially, will find it extremely informative as it addresses many practical aspects, which a common floriculturist seeks to know. The researchers on orchid biology will find it hard to resist once they have a glimpse of it."
