Newly Published Orchid Flora of the Greater Antilles by Prof. Ackerman
More than 20 years in the making, the "Orchid Flora of the Greater Antilles" has finally been published by the New York Botanical Garden Press as volume 109 of their Memoirs of the New York Botanical Garden series.
The lead author, Dr. James Ackerman, is the director of the UPRRP Herbarium and Zoology Museum. Last month, Dr. Ackerman presented the book and gave a public talk at the New York Botanical Garden.
