Orchids of Manitoba, 2nd edition  

With the great success of their field guide Orchids of Manitoba, Native Orchid Conservation Inc. (NOCI) has published a second edition with many updates and additions. The intent is the same as the first, to inform Manitobans and the general public about Manitoba’s 37 orchid species and the need to conserve their habitat, but this is even better. Species accounts include updated range maps and a write-up on Manitoba's newest native orchid. The orchid biology and conservation sections are expanded to reflect recent research and changes to legislation. More beautiful photos of native orchids have been added for your interest and enjoyment. This book also highlights NOCI's work and past successes with the conservation of native orchids and discusses future challenges related to climate change and loss of habitat.
