Can someone recommend a good book on Pleurothallids?
Start with the Masdevallia one. That should be enough to break your piggy bank once you see all the pichers
Which masdevallia one?
Ein, do ya have one to loan?
Masdevallias: Gems of the Orchid World
by Mary E. Gerritsen & Ron Parsons
Lots of pictures!
$26 plus shipping on Amazon.....
I'll endorse that one too.
Oooo pichers! I love pichers!! Thanks guys. Still accepting further input.
All 29 Icones Pleurothallidinarum.
Dawn, The Masdevallia book is wonderful, but doesn't cover other genera. If you are looking to window shop, I don't think there are any picture books on the pleurothallids. The series by Carl Luer mentioned by Jon is a bit out of reach dollar wise, but they do have a CD for $50 that covers the first 20 volumes and would be a great reference.
Thanks Jon! Will you be sending those to me? They are waaaay out of my little budget
No. But go to the Mobot library and find them individually for not a whole lot of money.
Cool, thanks Jon.
Thanks Marni, I missed your post until now. Sorry. A.D.D. Girl strikes again.
how about a subscription to the Pleurothallid Alliance new letter.
Forrest are you (or anyone else) have a membership? I was thinking about it but not sure what benifits I personally would get from it. What types of articles and information are in the quartly newsletter?
I am Tom. It is a small newsletter, I wouldn't compare it to OD or the AOS rag, but I enjoy getting it.
I could maybe send you an old issue to see if it is something you would be interested in if you want.
What types of articles to they normally contain? It would be nice to check one out, any way to possible scan one in and send it electronically rather than snail mail?
They have articles about Pleurothallids. duh.
Sure, Ill scan in a page and send it to you.
What the heck was a I thinking Actually what I was trying to ask was is it primarily culture info or was it intended more for a taxonimists?
That would be awesome...Thanks Forrest
Me too me too please por favor!!!!
