A Guide to Dendrobium of Australia, ADAMS, Peter B.
6 ADAMS, Peter B. A Guide to Dendrobium of Australia
Kota Kinabalu 2015 9838121630 / 9789838121637 First Edition Paperback New 
Well illustrated, small slim 8vo, pp x, 150, paperback, a very good new copy. [Dendrobium species are attractive, conspicuous and numerous along the entire eastern coast of Australia, and are popular plants for culture and breeding of colourful hybrids. In contrast to the other books in the series so far, where a selection of species was made, all Australian species and their variants (around 80) are included. There is a full spectrum of plant form from some of the smallest mat-forming dendrobiums to the largest in the genus, being over two metres tall and several metres across. The unusual and rarer species of Cape York Peninsula and central Queensland are uncommon in collections and seldom seen, requiring travel to remote places. Some of the most striking Dendrobium habitats are illustrated. There have been a number of approaches to the classification of Dendrobium and related genera over the past 30 years. Classification and nomenclature are always evolving as new information becomes available. Genera Orchidacearum Volume 6 (2014) included evidence from morphology, DNA and all other areas of study and provided an international consensus for Dendrobium, bringing a long-awaited degree of stability to the genus. This book follows the Genera Orchidacearum Vol. 6 approach and the Kew Monocot Checklist, and considers all available published evidence on the genus. An identification key to the sections is provided, and species are arranged in a checklist according to sections.]

The Wild Orchids of Hong Kong, Barretto, Gloria; Cribb, Phillip & Gale, Stephen
20 Barretto, Gloria; Cribb, Phillip & Gale, Stephen The Wild Orchids of Hong Kong
Kota Kinabalu 2011 9838121363 / 9789838121361 Cloth New New 
Very well illustrated, large thick 8vo, pp xviii, 697, upper corner very slightly bumped otherwise a very good copy in dustwrapper. Please note that this book weighs 2.5 kilos, so extra shipping costs will be needed. [The cultivation and medicinal use of orchids are Chinese traditions that date back millennia, but scientific documentation of southeast China’s native orchids commenced with the establishment of European trade bases at Macau in the 16th Century and at Guangzhou in the 18th Century. João de Loureiro, a Portuguese missionary, collected Pecteilis susannae and Spiranthes sinensis during his visit to these enclaves from 1779-1782 and John Damper Parks, a collector for the Horticultural Society of London, sent back specimens of Coelogyne fimbriata and Robiquetia succisa from the region in the 1820s. The earliest survey of orchids on Hong Kong Island is attributed to Dr. Clarke Abel, naturalist aboard HMS Alceste during Lord Amherst’s ill-fated diplomatic mission to the court of the Qing Dynasty in 1816, when he botanised the lower slopes of what was to become known as Mt. Victoria. The island was formally ceded to the United Kingdom following the Treaty of Nanking in 1842, and the Kowloon Peninsula and the New Territories were added to the colony in 1860 and 1898 respectively. A century of exploration ensued: over 40 new orchids were named from plants collected within the territory, and even in the short period that has elapsed since its return to Chinese rule, Hong Kong’s narrow valleys and precipitous summits have continued to yield novelties. Collabium chinense and Vanilla shenzhenica were added to the list of native orchids as recently as 1998. In total, 126 species and varieties representing all five orchid subfamilies have been recorded from Hong Kong, a staggering figure given its diminutive size. Hong Kong’s landscape has changed dramatically throughout its history, and emphasis is increasingly placed on developing an understanding of the plants’ ecology in order to ensure their persistence for future generations. This book provides descriptions and discusses the discovery of all the native species, and the conservation status of each is assessed. Every species is illustrated with a line drawing, and almost all are depicted in photographs taken in Hong Kong. This book brings to fruition the work of lifelong Hong Kong resident and countrywoman Gloria Barretto (1916-2007). Gloria acquired her knowledge of botany and orchid taxonomy under the informal tuition of Professor Shiu-ying Hu, and worked at Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden from 1971 until 2003. Every evening after work, she crouched over her microscope, utilising makeshift dissecting equipment, working with her collection of books, reams of data, photographs and notes, and, guided by her international network of experts, produced draft descriptions for the orchids of Hong Kong. It was always her intention that this would lead to the publication of a comprehensive account of all the native orchids, a task left to her co-authors and an aspiration now realized posthumously.]
