Orchids Rainforest Wildlife.

Many botanists estimate that the orchids are the most numerous group of flowering plants, with between 25,000 and 35,000 species. Even today, this great diversity makes study of the family Orchidaceae difficult. Nevertheless, researchers have already elucidated several interesting, even surprising, aspects of orchid ecology.
