ORCHID SOCIETY OF ARIZONA, INC.
Special Events Schedule 2013
PROGRAM: TERRESTRIAL ORCHIDS OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA
John Alcock, Regents' Professor Emeritus of Biology at
Arizona State University will present a PowerPoint
program on the biology and conservation of the
terrestrial orchids of Western Australia. He will tell
to search for orchids in this remote part of the world
and also discuss what is fascinating about these often
inconspicuous but beautiful plants. His presentation
will be illustrated with his own photos.
Although John's research deals primarily with the
evolution of diversity in how male insects find and
acquire mates, he has an intense interest in plant
natural history, particularly with respect to orchids.
John has traveled extensively within Western Australia,
and since 1985, he has made twelve trips to this
orchid-rich corner of the world. His most recent trip to
Western Australia was in the summer of 2011.
Among other books which John has authored, in November,
2005, AN ENTHUSIASM FOR ORCHIDS: Sex and Deception in
Plant Evolution, was published.
will be John's fourth presentation for OSA. He
last spoke to us in February, 2011. Welcome back, John!
