38133 cootes dendro webA Guide to Dendrobium of the Philippines

Jim Cootes and George Tiong

The second largest orchid genus, Dendrobium is one of the most widely distributed genera. The genus, when taken in the broad sense, and as represented in the Philippines, has about 110 species. In fact, the Philippines, comprised of over 7,100 islands, is considered one of the centres of biodiversity for the genus and its relatives.

In this guide, the authors present the most up to date information on the species that have been recorded in the Philippines archipelago. The list is as up to date as possible; however, new areas are still being opened up for exploration and study, and consequently more new species of all types of orchids are continually being found and described. An introduction to the geography of the islands that make up the Philippine archipelago is also provided.
