I want to express my sincerest gratitude to my family, who have always been supportive, and to Dr. Carl Luer for his help and guidance in my orchid studies. Special thanks to John and Ruth Moore for their generous financial support since the beginning via donations to the Population Biology Foundation, and to the San Diego County Orchid Society and Oregon Orchid Society for their support. Thanks to Malli Rao for generously supporting orchid conservation in my area, and to Steve Beckendorf and Cindy Hill for a very generous grant to support my conservation research.  Thanks also to the Orchid Resource Center, the Center for International Studies-Andean Study Programs, Kent and Cherise Udell, R. Bozek and Alyssa Roberts. The discoveries reported here are theirs as well as mine.
