A field guide to the orchids of this region of New Zealand.  A very well presented and comprehensive book detailing a total of 72 species with distribution details and maps showing locations within the lower North Island of New Zealand. 

Each species has a detailed description, habitat details, flowering and fruiting times, conservation status and recognition characteristics.  Included is a comprehensive chapter on how to use the guide and a section on conservation amd management. Altogether this is a very good field guide that should prove to be invaluable for those interested in the native orchids of New Zealand. 

The inside back cover has a metric ruler drawn on it - a very clever way to include a measuring device in a field guide - handy for those quick comparative measurement checks when trying to identify a flower.
