Dr. Zettler is a professor of biology at Illinois College and a research associate at the Chicago Botanical Garden. "Throughout the world, roughly one half of all orchid species are now considered vulnerable to extinction this century. This talk will explain what makes these remarkable plants unique, why they are so vulnerable, and what is being done to conserve some of the rarest species of orchids in the world (e.g., the enigmatic Ghost Orchid of Florida and Cuba)."
