New page!

Take a look at the new 'About slipper orchids' page that highlights some major differences between the five slipper orchid genera.

Thanks to Steve Bachman and Justin Moat (Kew GIS Unit) for the 'quickmaps' script for ArcView that generated the slipper orchid distribution maps used in the figures (based on TDWG level 3 codes from the World Checklist of Monocots).

An illustration showing slipper orchid morphology is also included, drawn by Leonid Averyanov.
