Ophrys - the Bee Orchids of Europe is an easy to use, comprehensive introduction to the plants of this genus found in Europe. It can be used as a field guide (with keys, descriptions and numerous colour photographs) and a standard reference (with chapters on structure, biology, evolution and conservation). The chapter by Richard Manuel on cultivation is especially helpful for growers and conservationists introducing plants back into the wild. Finally, the sections covering the authors `recommended Ophrys excursions' makes it an ideal for companion for field trips.
