People have been fascinated by orchids for hundreds of years so it is surprising that we still don’t really know all that much about them. Krystyn Forbes will discuss some of the germination work he has been doing in the lab to help grow our experimental collection. Next, Jasmine will delve into the history and complexity of orchids, and how her research works toward understanding one of nature’s trilogies – the co-evolutionary relationships among orchids, insects and fungi.
