The Natural Genus Vanda is the first monograph of the genus. Martin R. Motes, PhD, the foremost breeder and cultivator of vandacaeous orchids in the world, describes all known species of Vanda. Through almost four hundred pages, the fourteen sections of the genus Vanda are delineated based on morphology and DNA. More than three hundred illustrations adorn the pages, as Motes describes six new species, with illustrations, as well as six new subspecies, and four new natural hybrids. In addition, three species not yet described are illustrated pending further research and all known natural hybrids described and illustrated.
This is the essential work for any vanda lover.
