Orchids of New England & New York
Abstract: Wild orchids are an important – and increasingly threatened – component of the flora of New England & New York, with 65 species and varieties occurring in the region. Lamont and Nelson have been searching out the often elusive remnant populations of wild orchids in the region in recent years and their research has resulted in the publication of a field guide, Orchids of New England & New York (Kollath+Stensaas, 2012). In this talk they will discuss the identifying characteristics, unique growth requirements and oftentimes unusual growth cycles of the incredibly varied taxon present in the region. This talk will also discuss some of the threats that wild orchids face as well as some conservation strategies. A slide show of Tom Nelson’s images will accompany the talk.
