Orchids of the Anglesea District
Orchids of the Anglesea District - Third Edition

The third edition of this popular Field Guide, which has sold over 1500 copies, is now available. This book details all known native orchids of the Anglesea district, with a colour photograph, name derivation, description, flowering time, local habitat and local conservation status.  It has a complete new look and includes three new orchids for the area, Pterostylis chloragramma, Chiloglottis trilabra and Lyperanthus suaveolens.

The authors hope it will encourage visitors to Anglesea, as well as orchid enthusiasts, to support efforts to preserve areas where orchids are found. All funds from the sale of this book are channelled back into conservation within the area.  Names used are those published by the National Herbarium of Victoria, June 2003.

Price: A$25.00

Postage & Packing within Australia: A$3.00
