This highly anticipated work on wild orchids in the Languedoc and Catalan region is the result of a long-term work of enthusiastic members of the French Society of Orchidophilia (SFO-Languedoc and SFO-Pyrenees East) .
Practical and comprehensive, this guide covers 118 species of orchids with details of the various habitats that make it both one of the richest localities for finding orchids in France and one of the most investigated by orchidophiles
All species of orchids are described in detail (etymology, description, comments, date of flowering, ecology, distribution, protection status) and illustrated . The threats to noted species of the region are the subject of a single chapter, which also includes detailed examples of conservation management in the departments ( Pyrénées-Orientales, Aude, Hérault, Gard, Aveyron and Lozère ) .
At the end of the book, there are 22 guided walks for visitors to observe the beautiful and complex flora of the area.
