From each genus the following aspects are illustrated: habitat, flower close-ups, macrophotographs of the column, rosette and capsules; flower diagrams; SEM-photographs of pollinia, pollinaria or pollen grains, microscopic sections of the flower and pollinators.

In the introductory chapter the terminology is explained and illustrated with many macro-photographs.
