Hunting orchids in the Peruvian jungle

An article in the Kansas Wichita Eagle from this past Friday describes a graduate student's quest to document the wild orchids in the Peruvian Andes. The biology student from Texas Christian University is cataloging rare orchids and has found 150 different species since last August.

The project is part of an "Andes to Amazon Biodiversity Program (AABP), a $2.3 million, three-year conservation project in Peru, funded by a grant from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation."
