9780444898418: The Scent of Orchids: Olfactory and Chemical Investigations
Présentation de l'éditeur :

The aim of this book, the first of its kind, is to convey an impression of this enormous variety in scent and visual appearance of orchid flowers. The interdisciplinary concept of the beautifully illustrated book (over 170 colour photographs) should guarantee that a broad spectrum of readers will find this publication appealing: people engaged in the fragrance field, professional scientists, naturalists as well as hobbyists.



"This book takes the reader into the scented world of orchids...... (It) contains an introduction to the world of orchids, a description of the orchids found on five continents and the chemistry of their aromas. (One of the unique features of this publication) is the way it has bridged the gap between the scientist and the lay person.



The book is filled with beautiful color prints of more than 170 orchids, so that the variation and exotic nature of many orchids are readily understood. To not overburden the lay reader with the detailed chemical composition of each of the aromas of the 165 orchid species examined, the author has cleverly placed the data in an appendix. This makes the book easier to read without comprising the scientific contribution of the author's work.



Finally, here is a book of excellent value which will become the reference text on orchid aromas."

Revue de presse :

Leslie Crombie
Romas Kaiser has brought together in this superb book his knowledge and enthusiasm for the botany and ecology of orchids, his skills as a photographer - most of the 170 orchid photographs are his - and his professional expertise......... The Scent of Orchids will stand as a landmark book on orchid perfume, while being a pleasure to read.
Nature, Vol 362
