More than 150 orchid genera are described, each accompanied by a superb Marion Sheehan illustration that shows a representative species; all display the same structures in similar views so that the reader can easily compare the variations among genera. In 1995, the authors received the American Orchid Society's Gold Medal of Achievement.
