Orchids through Darwin's Eyes: 15th Annual Orchid Show

January 24, 2009 – April 26, 2009

Museum: Natural History Museum

Location: 1st Floor, West Wing, Special Exhibit Gallery (near Mammals)

Naturalist Charles Darwin selected orchids to help prove his theories of natural selection and evolution; and since then, scientists have included orchids in their studies to learn more about how plants have evolved and adapted to live in almost every type environment around the world. To mark Darwin's 200th birthday, the exhibit explores the incredibly diverse world of orchids through his eyes and examines the ways in which he influenced today's naturalists, horticulturists, and scientists who study these intriguing plants.
