Dr. Larry Peterson - University of Guelph
THE FASCINATING BIOLOGY OF ORCHIDS

There are over 800 genera and 25,000 species in the Orchidaceae. Dr. Larry Peterson will discuss features of orchid biology that have led to rapid speciation in the family. Topics will include pollination mechanisms, associations with beneficial fungi, adaptations to a wide range of terrestrial habitats and the success of this group as epiphytes. The amazing diversity in floral forms has led to a multi-million dollar horticultural industry but has also resulted in many orchid species being poached from the wild. Because of this, and destruction of habitats, over 300 species are listed as endangered or threatened.
