Orchids are best known as beautiful flowers. When it comes to the wonders of floral attractions and aesthetics, no other flowers of the plant kingdom can excel an orchid flower. Dr Bijaya Pant and Mr. Bhakta Bahadhur Raskoti, however, dwell themselves upon the fourth dimension of orchids i.e their medicinal virtues. This book is an attempt for a complete treatment to elucidate the wealth of medicinal orchids in Nepal.  It also provides knowledge and information associated with their use in traditional medicine as well as in phytochemical researches.  Concern over conservation issues stand out as an important component of their contribution. I am sure this book will be a valuable collection for students, researchers and entrepreneurs of herbal medicine and medicinal plants.

This book is a treasure trove on medicinal orchids of Nepal and the first of its kind on the topic. Well illustrated with photographs and brief descriptions of the plants and their flowering season serves as a useful guide to their identification in the field. Everyone interested in medicinal orchids should read this book.
