Sci Cafe: Chapman’s Orchid – Pollination-based Speciation in the Fringed-Orchid Complex

March 24, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Botanist Dr. Jim Folsom talk about Chapman’s orchid. Jim’s life-long interest in these orchids began when he was a graduate student at Vanderbilt University where he studied the pollination biology of the orchids. Now, after further study of tropical orchids and a 36-year career as Director of California’s Huntington Botanical Gardens (California), he has returned to the Panhandle to resume his studies as part of an active retirement. Jim and his wife Debra moved to St George Island recently renewing his decades-long interest in the Panhandle flora. He remains dedicated to public outreach that advances understanding, appreciation, and conservation of plant biodiversity.
