Australia has the world’s most diverse range of terrestrial orchids
but many are threatened by agricultural and urban development. The ongoing fieldwork carried out by Lynda McPherson is based on her Honours research and examines the phenology (seasonal cycles) of local terrestrial orchids. The work examines 24 native orchid species, comprises a book, watercolour paintings, photography, flowering timelines, orchid survey and herbarium specimens. The book is supplemented with a reflective nature diary recording the subjective experience of seasonal variances in local flora, fauna and weather patterns over twelve months.
