The images are stunning, a glory of colors and shapes, but this book offers much more. Ziegler--a trained biologist, as well as photographer--shows these remarkable plants in the context of their habitat: marsh, semi-desert, tropical forest. That--and his astonishing photographs of orchids and their pollinators--reminds us how clever, precious, and diverse nature can be, and why conservation matters.--Chris Johns, editor in chief, "National Geographic Magazine."
