Philippine Orchids: A detailed treatment of some one hundred native species

Title: Philippine Orchids: A detailed treatment of some one hundred native species
Author: Reg S. Davis
Synopsis: The interest in the rich orchid flora of the Philippine Island continues to increase of botanical exploration, collecting and study. The early work of Camellus, Manuel Blanco, Hugh Cuming, Oakes Ames and Elmer D. Merrill led a succession of plant collectors to roam the Islands in a Veritable invasion that lasted many decades. They were seeking new sources of plants already horticulturally popular and highly profitable financially and horticultural novelties that would win fame in the furious competition of amateur purchasers on the Continent where orchid growing had become a fad reaching almost a frenzy among the aristocracy and landed gentry.
