Research in Cuba

Plans are now underway for a team from Illinois College to visit Cuba in August 2013 to begin a collaborative research project involving the Ghost Orchid, Dendrophylax lindenii. Dr. Ernesto Mujica from the Centro de Investigaciones y Servicios Ambientales ECOVIDA in Pinar del Río - a researcher specializing in D. lindenii conservation - will host the team in an attempt to understand the specific habitat needs for this orchid in Cuba. These findings are expected to augment the ongoing research currently underway in South Florida involving D. lindenii. Future work in Cuba could possibly involve Illinois College students who study abroad and/or conduct summer internships there.
