Orchids through Darwin’s Eyes
Location: First Floor
Exhibit: January 24, 2009 – April 26, 2009
Charles Darwin used orchids to help prove his theories of natural selection and evolution. Scientists today follow in Darwin’s footsteps and use orchids to learn more about how plants have evolved and adapted to live in almost every type of environment around the world. Come explore the alluring world of orchids through the eyes of Darwin. Discover new insights and curious surprises about these captivating plants, including the only orchid fossil ever discovered! This exhibit has been developed in partnership with the Smithsonian's Horticultural Services Division, Smithsonian's Office of Exhibits Central, and the US Botanic Gardens.
