Orchids have long held a fascination, both for keen botanists and the general public. From the mania of Victorian collectors to the enthusiasm of modern photographers, this family of flowering plants has a strange and exotic appeal. Many orchids are beautiful, and some are rare.

When first published in 2005, this comprehensive and well illustrated guide represented a benchmark for the identification of British and Irish orchids, with detailed information on their biology, habitats, distribution and conservation. It covers all 56 species of wild orchid found in Britain and Ireland.

Until recently, the whereabouts of the rarer species was shrouded in secrecy, making publication of any details ethically impossible. In the last few years, however, these veils have been lifted and it is now possible to publish locations for all but one or two species.

Orchids of Britain and Ireland includes a detailed site guide, covering the 330 places to see orchids in Britain.
