"... this is a publication that truly reflects the current state of knowledge on almost every aspect of orchid biology, not just taxonomy. The quality of the line drawings ranges from good to excellent. I would like to single out those by Oliver Q. Whalley, which alone make the book worth purchasing ... much more than a taxonomic treatise. All biologists who work on orchids should have it close at hand." - Plant Systematics and Evolution
"This volume, as volume 1, is destined to be the standard against which other similar works will be compared. One cannot praise this work too highly nor to extol its virtues excessively.
Genera Orchidacearum, volume 2, part 1 is a masterpiece." - Plant Science Bulletin
"... elegantly presented ... this work is undoubtedly of elevated scientific value and is able to satisfy the specialistic needs of the fascinating world of orchids." - Advances in Horticultural Science
