Orchid journal published by the Swiss Orchid Foundation
The Swiss Orchid Foundation annually publishes the Renziana, a bilingual (English and German) orchid journal of around 100 pages, which is developed in collaboration with renowned scientists, growers and enthusiasts. In each issue, different aspects of a genus are highlighted, such as the morphology, taxonomy, geographical distribution, ecology, history, conservation, cultivation and breeding of the plants. Probably the most interesting part for our readers is the chapter about the current taxonomy, where the classification of the plants according to the latest scientific results is shown, and each species of the genus is illustrated with a high quality colour photograph. In addition, you will find stunning pictures of the plants' natural habitat, of hand-coloured drawings from historic books, of hybrids, and detailed distribution maps. A distinctive feature of our journal is that almost all of these pictures can be downloaded from the website of the Swiss Orchid Foundation. It is very easy to find the favoured image, since each picture has a unique ID-number, which is shown in the caption. The ID-number simply has to be typed in the search form of the World Orchid Iconography database and you will automatically be forwarded to the corresponding webpage.
The journal can directly be ordered on this website. Payment is made either by PayPal, credit card, or in a classic bank transfer.
