Arethuseae is a mid-sized tribe of orchids in the subfamily Epidendroideae.
Calypsoeae is an orchid tribe in the subfamily Epidendroideae.
The Coelogyninae are an orchid subtribe in the tribe Arethuseae.
The column, or technically the gynostemium, is a reproductive structure that can be found in several plant families: Aristolochiaceae, Orchidaceae, and Stylidiaceae.
The Cymbidieae is a tribe within the family of orchids.
Dendrobieae is a tribe in the subfamily Epidendroideae, in the family Orchidaceae.
Diceratostele is a genus of flowering plants from the orchid family, Orchidaceae.
The tribe Epidendreae of the Orchidaceae comprises six subtribes.
Epidendrum macrocarpum, widely known as Epidendrum schomburgkii, is a species of orchid in the genus Epidendrum, and the largest-flowering crucifix orchid species.
Epipactis, or Helleborine, is a genus of terrestrial orchids consisting of approximately 70 species.
An epiphyte is an organism that grows on the surface of a plant and derives its moisture and nutrients from the air, rain, water (in marine environments) or from debris accumulating around it.
A fungus (plural: fungi or funguses) is any member of the group of eukaryotic organisms that includes microorganisms such as yeasts and molds, as well as the more familiar mushrooms.
A genus (genera) is a taxonomic rank used in the biological classification of living and fossil organisms, as well as viruses, in biology.
Gynoecium (from Ancient Greek γυνή, gyne, meaning woman, and οἶκος, oikos, meaning house) is most commonly used as a collective term for the parts of a flower that produce ovules and ultimately develop into the fruit and seeds.
The history of plant systematics—the biological classification of plants—stretches from the work of ancient Greek to modern evolutionary biologists.
A leaf is an organ of a vascular plant and is the principal lateral appendage of the stem.
A locule (plural locules) or loculus (plural loculi) (meaning "little place" in Latin) is a small cavity or compartment within an organ or part of an organism (animal, plant, or fungus).
Malaxideae is an orchid tribe in the subfamily Epidendroideae.
Maxillarieae is a large and complex tribe of orchids native to South and Central America.
In cladistics, a monophyletic group, or clade, is a group of organisms that consists of all the descendants of a common ancestor.
Myco-heterotrophy (from Greek μύκης mykes, "fungus", ἕτερος heteros, "another", "different" and τροφή trophe, "nutrition") is a symbiotic relationship between certain kinds of plants and fungi, in which the plant gets all or part of its food from parasitism upon fungi rather than from photosynthesis.
A mycorrhiza (from Greek μύκης mýkēs, "fungus", and ῥίζα rhiza, "root"; pl. mycorrhizae, mycorrhiza or mycorrhizas) is a symbiotic association between a fungus and the roots of a vascular host plant.
Neottieae is an orchid tribe in the subfamily Epidendroideae.
Nervilieae is an orchid tribe in the subfamily Epidendroideae.
The Orchidaceae are a diverse and widespread family of flowering plants, with blooms that are often colourful and fragrant, commonly known as the orchid family.
In the flowering plants, an ovary is a part of the female reproductive organ of the flower or gynoecium.
In evolutionary biology, parasitism is a relationship between species, where one organism, the parasite, lives on or in another organism, the host, causing it some harm, and is adapted structurally to this way of life.
A stem is one of two main structural axes of a vascular plant, the other being the root.
Podochileae is an orchid tribe in the subfamily Epidendroideae.
Pollen is a fine to coarse powdery substance comprising pollen grains which are male microgametophytes of seed plants, which produce male gametes (sperm cells).
A pollinium (plural pollinia) is a coherent mass of pollen grains in a plant that are the product of only one anther, but are transferred, during pollination, as a single unit.
A polyphyletic group is a set of organisms, or other evolving elements, that have been grouped together but do not share an immediate common ancestor.
The pseudobulb is a storage organ found in many epiphytic and terrestrial sympodial orchids.
The rostellum is a projecting part of the column in Orchidaceae flowers, and separates the male androecium from the female gynoecium, commonly preventing self-fertilisation.
Sobraliinae is a subtribe of orchids (family Orchidaceae).
In biology, a species is the basic unit of classification and a taxonomic rank, as well as a unit of biodiversity, but it has proven difficult to find a satisfactory definition.
The stamen (plural stamina or stamens) is the pollen-producing reproductive organ of a flower.
In botany, a stipe is a stalk that supports some other structure.
In biological classification, a subfamily (Latin: subfamilia, plural subfamiliae) is an auxiliary (intermediate) taxonomic rank, next below family but more inclusive than genus.
A terrestrial plant is a plant that grows on or in or from land.
Triphoreae is an orchid tribe in the subfamily Epidendroideae.
Tropidieae is an orchid tribe in the subfamily Epidendroideae.
The Vandeae is a large monophyletic tribe within the family of orchids.
Xerorchis (from Greek xeros, dry, and orchis, testicle-shaped) is an orchid genus in the subfamily Epidendroideae, and the sole representative of tribe Xerorchideae.
