Orchids of Myanmar

Orchids (along with the Asteraceae) are one of the two largest families of flowering plants. Dino Zelenika will be giving a talk on the Orchidaceae, their environmental history as well as the present conservation situation and future of this fascinating and important family. Particular emphasis will be placed on the orchids of Myanmar and Southeast Asia, which Dino has studied (and photographed) extensively in the field. However, orchids from other regions of the world will also be considered to give a broad overview of their ecological significance.
