About this book

A broad range of scientific subjects reflecting the most current knowledge in orchidology is presented in this volume. The editors have continued the tradition of profiling an outstanding leader in the field with a spotlight on Calaway Dodson, whose research on the orchids of Ecuador continues to inspire generations of botanists.

Other chapters cover orchids pollinated by Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths); a comprehensive survey of terrestrial orchid morphology; an English translation of a classic work, the original writing on orchid seed germination by Frenchman No#l Bernard; the origin of Singapore's national flower, the well-known Vanda `Miss Joaquim'; and former New York Botanical Garden scientist Ken Cameron's overview of the impact that DNA sequence data has made in orchid systematics. The book concludes with a detailed appendix, the subject of which is species-by-species records from pollination to fruit ripening, seed maturation, and germination of orchids.
