Summary note
Along with innovative identification keys and a glossary of botanical terms, William K. Chapman includes the latest research collected on these flowers. For instance, to allow for current classification changes, three varieties of Cypripedium parviflorum - yellow lady's slippers - are listed, as well as the recently recognized species of Platanthera huronensis, and Malaxis bayardii, and the proposed Platanthera pallida. The many color photographs in Orchids of the Northeast makes this book a visual - as well as a botanical - treasure.
