BBC NATURE
I recently came across a very interesting website: BBC Nature.
Here one can find a host of interesting facts and articles about nature in general but also a lot about orchids.
There are many interesting video clips on orchids which are entertaining as well as educational.
Visit: http://www.bbc.co.uk/nature/life/Orchidaceae#p002v2qc to see some of these.
This page features information about orchids in general, some of the ‘technical details’ about orchids (put in
layman’s terms) and info on orchid evolution as well as some of the latest orchid discoveries.

The Orchidstudium Project is a non-profit organization that congregates researchers and collectors of orchids, mainly of Brazilian native species, for the purpose of extending and spreading the knowledge of these plants. As the existing bibliography on Brazilian orchids is quite old and incomplete, the main project of the group is the publication of the online Orchids Photographic Encyclopedia that can be accessed on Photos menu link. The Encyclopedia is designed to be a fast and practical tool for identification of worlwide orchid species and includes nomenclatural changes that continue to occur nowadays.
