NOVEMBER 4th PROGRAM: TERRESTRIAL ORCHIDS OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA

 

Dr. 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 us how 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.

This will be John's fourth presentation for OSA. He last spoke to us in February, 2011. Welcome back, John!
