Orchid enthusiasts may appreciate this Web site developed by Jeff Hapeman, graduate student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Information including "photos, typical taxonomic descriptive information, a description of similar species to aid in identification, habitat information, blooming dates, a section on pollination biology (if information is available), herbarium records, and a range map" are included for each species of orchid (native and naturalized) found in Wisconsin. Species can be viewed through an alphabetical listing of genera or by navigating through the interactive key. However, even though it is an interesting Web site for browsing orchid information, those without botanical background may be frustrated by the technical terms used throughout the key.
