From Anegada in the northeastern corner of the Caribbean to the tip of western Cuba, the Greater Antilles stretch across nearly 1500 miles comprising a geologically complex group of islands that house a remarkably species-rich flora and fauna, making the region one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots. Nearly 600 orchid species reside on these culturally diverse islands, and to get a good sense of this diversity, their intriguing biology and the habitats in which they reside, ideally one must go where they are. Alternatively, join Jim Ackerman, Professor at the University of Puerto Rico, as he unveils the beauty and unravels the mysteries of the public and private lives of the “Orchid flora of the Greater Antilles.”
