Book Launching

I was fortunate enough to be invited by the League of Orchid Conservationists - Philippines in the book launching of Jim Cootes' A Guide to Dendrobium of the Philippines. The man himself was there to autograph my copy.

Dendrobiums are an interesting group of orchids. The very popular sanggumay (Dendrobium anosmum) belongs to the group. The book features a number of amazing Dendrobium species found in the Philippines. The number of Philippine Dendrobium species is staggering and only proves that our country is a biodiversity epicenter.
