Descriptions du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

From the East Texas swamps and forests to the Edwards Plateau canyons and the Trans-Pecos mountains, Texas hosts a surprising number of native orchids. Their exquisite beauty endears them to everyone from wildflower lovers to professional botanists and conservationists.

This beautifully illustrated book presents all 54 wild orchids of Texas. The species descriptions that accompany Joe Liggio's lovely color photos discuss the plant's flowers, blooming season, pollinators, typical habitats, and range (also shown by map), including its distribution within and beyond Texas. The species are grouped by genus and also listed by color, county, and habitat for easy reference.

In addition to the species accounts, the authors offer a general natural history of Texas orchids that discusses such topics as pollination and reproduction, special growing requirements, and threats to orchids from loss of habitats and careless collecting. They also describe the many orchid habitats in Texas and the species that grow in each. This wide variety of information, which has never before been collected in one volume for a general readership, makes this book the essential guide to Texas' wild orchids.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wild Orchids of Texas by Joe Liggio & Ann Orto Liggio 17 juillet 2000
Par Dr. Lawrence K. Magrath, Curator of the USAO Herbarium, University of Science & Arts of Oklahoma (Consulting member of the American Orchid Socie - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book is clearly a labor of love on the part of the authors, and is one that should be very useful to nature lovers in general, and both amateur and professional orchidologists. The photography is excellent, giving a feel for both the habitat and individual plants and flowers. There is only one very rare species that is not pictured. The index is well done and quite useable. The authors have done a superb job of promoting the cause of orchid conservation -- including such things as "How to Save Our Native Orchids: What You Can Do" on page 5. They have a good general discussion of orchid life cycles, their habitats, mycorhizal associations and pollenators. For those not familiar with Texas the inclusion of a vegetation map and a short description of each major vegetation type is very useful. Orchids are listed by: 1) flower colour, 2) by vegetation/habitat types, and finally species distributions by county are given. One orchid Habenaria quinqueseta does not have a distribution map, but since it was collected over 150 years ago, we shouldn't be too concerned. The only real lack that I have found is that there is no key to the genera and species given. This is an excellent book that every serious orchid species enthusiast should have in their book collection -- if only for the wonderful photography.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Brings the wild orchids of Texas to you 31 janvier 2000
Par Larry S. Bonura - Publié sur Amazon.com
The authors, a husband-wife team, combine their specialties to create an exciting experience for the reader. Joe is a biologist and photographer, and Ann is a writer. They have crafted a beautifully executed book. The writing is excellent; the photography is exquisite; the organization is wonderful; and the information is easily digestible for the lay person. The authors have spent years chasing down these delightful and beautiful orchids and now bring their beauty to you. The University of Texas Press has created a book of high quality and beauty with great color photographs. Fifty-four types of orchids are discussed and described in their natural habitats. Each of the regional sections are described and orchids living in each listed. Orchids are listed by flower color, genus and species, and scientific names. One appendix lists species distribution by county. The list of references and index add great value to the book.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wild Orchids of Texas 9 juillet 2009

This is a wonderful book - a beautiful reference for the wild orchids in Texas. Its arrangement makes identifying and searching for orchids as easy as possible. I particularly like the descriptions of habitats and the attention to locations. It has small maps with county designations and there is an index in the back to allow searching by county. The photographs are beautiful and are taken in their natural settings and that makes it easier to look for these orchids. Anyone with an interest in wild orchids in Texas should have this book. I highly recommend it!

I love this book. My only issue with it is that it can be very technical and not the best sort of thing to lend to a friend and expect them to enjoy (unless they're fellow orchid-people). Any orchid grower, especially Texans, will want to read this at least once. Other people might enjoy looking at the pictures, but the technical content would probably be of little interest to them.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 You don't have to be a Biologist to use and love this book! 14 janvier 2006
Par R. Daniel - Publié sur Amazon.com
These authors really know their stuff! Lots of information to help your chances of actually observing these native beauties in the wild. Conservation is a repeated theme throughout. Texans will be blown away by the incredible photos! I love mine.
