This book is the first guide that showcases the diversity and exquisiteness of the family Zingiberaceae in the Philippines. Although the book focuses on the province of Sorsogon, almost 30% of Philippine gingers are found here, 11 of which are endemic to the province.

This field guidebook includes topics such as basic structure of the ginger plant, economically important Philippine gingers, taxonomic history of the family in the country, and the reason why Sorsogon was chosen, all of which are presented in the introductory part of the book.

In addition, each of the 33 species is supplied with diagnostic characters, short descriptions, distribution, etymology, and useful information such as notes on their habitats, local names, and economic use. The guide is richly illustrated throughout with over 136 colorful photographs and illustrations as well as a key to the ginger genera of Sorsogon to serve as a reference for amateurs, students, and botanists who are interested in gingers.
