Field Guide to the Orchids of Costa Rica and Panama

FIELD GUIDE to the ORCHIDS of COSTA RICA and PANAMA by Robert L. Dressler
The first field guide to the orchids of Costa Rica and Panama, this book is lavishly illustrated with 240 stunning color photographs and 229 line drawings. It contains keys to all the orchid genera in the region and most of the orchid species. To make it possible for nonbotanists to identify at least the genus of the orchids, Robert L. Dressler emphasizes feaures that can be readily seen with the naked eye or a hand lens. Written in a friendly and accessible style, this guide begins with succinct descriptions of the geography, climate, and vegetation of Costa Rica and Panama, and includes appropriate comments on the peoples and cultures of the area. A discussion of orchid structure and ecology follows. The identification keys are preceded by instructions for use, and a general key directs the user to the appropriate chapter, where condensed descriptions and additional keys narrow the choices for the plant's identity. Dressler avoids complex terminology where possible and supplies a glossary of technical terms that will be helpful to those unfamiliar with botanical vocabulary. A short appendix describes how to prepare orchids for study and summarizes the laws that affect plant collectors, and another lists the authors of species names used in the guide. Robert L. Dressler is a highly respected orchid specialist and Adjunct Curator at the Florida Museum of Natural History, University of Florida. He has worked at the Missouri Botanical Garden and was at the Smithsonian Tropical Institute in Balboa, Panama, from 1963 until 1985. A graduate of the University of SouthernCalifornia, he received his Ph.D. from Harvard University. He is the author of The Orchids; Natural History and Classification.


Staff of Eria Designs

Dr. Robert Dressler and his wife Kerrybegan Bio-Photo Services (our partner) over 20 years ago while Bob worked as a Biologist for the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (STRI) in Panama.
After 20 + years with STRI in Panama Bob retired to Florida. Retirement lasted about 6 months. His current project is Co-ordinator for the Orchidaceae Section of the Flora MesoAmericana for the Missouri Botanical Gardens. Kerry took up Photography in order to follow Bob around the world, and she keeps the computers running. She hopes he might slow down someday.. but that looks to be a ways off. Together they have collaborated on four books, 3 CD's, and Kerry has taken to making internet shopping carts.
