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.
