The Philippines have a unique and rich orchid flora of almost 1000 species, of which about 74% are found nowhere else in the world. This CD-ROM presents an overview with descriptions of the 137 genera and provides a checklist of all species. It contains keys for identification, a hyperlinked glossary, and, above all, numerous beautiful photographs and drawings, often depicting species rarely if ever illustrated before. This CD-ROM was compiled at the Leiden branch of the National Herbarium of the Netherlands and the Philippine National Museum, Manila. Other leading botanical institutes, such as the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, the Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh, and the Botanical Museum, Copenhagen, as well as many well-known photographers have contributed to this CD-ROM. It will prove to be a tremendously useful and enjoyable resource for all who are interested in the orchids of the Philippines and Southeast Asia.
