    The name Guatemala derives from the Nahuatl word "Quauhtlemallan", and means "Land of trees". The name was given by the abundance of forest covering the country. Guatemala has a large number of ecosystems due to the diversified rainfall regime and diverse topographic relief, allowing a speed process of plant diversification, that has led to high level of biodiversity. Floristic studies of Guatemala, however, are scarce. In 1990 Fredy Archila decided to start studying the orchids of Guatemala. After 28 years of work and research with the important contribution and collaboration of Dariusz Szlachetko, Guy Chiron and their teams, the orchids genera and species of Guatemala is published, increasing the number of genera to over 220 and species more than 1200.

    The book includes biogeographical and historical information about Guatemala, descriptions of genera, key to their identifications and check-list of species. Most genera are illustrated by color photographs. The book also includes 724 pages of text and over 300 color photographs of orchids. Included in the 724 pages are 232 pages of 'Checklist of the Orchids in Guatemala' -

    El nombre Guatemala deriva de la palabra Nahuatl Quauhtlemallan, y significa Tierra de árboles, éste nombre fue dado por la abundancia de cobertura forestal en el país. Guatemala posee un gran número de ecosistemas debido al abundante régimen de precipitación pluvial, un relieve topográfico accidentado, que ha permitido un rápido proceso de especiación vegetal, que ha llevado a considerar al país Megadiverso. Los estudios florísticos en Guatemala son escasos. Por lo que en 1990 Fredy Archila decide iniciar con un proceso de investigación de orquídeas de Guatemala. Después de 28 años de trabajo e investigación con el aporte importante y colaboración de Dariusz Szlachetko, Guy Chiron y los equipos de trabajo se logra publicar el libro géneros de orquídeas de Guatemala, incrementando el número de géneros de Guatemala a más de 220 y más de 1200 especies. El libro incluye información biogeográfica e histórica de Guatemala, descripciones de géneros, clave para su y más de 300 fotografías a color.
