[Extract] Orchidaceae constitute the second-largest flowering plant family worldwide with over 27,000 species found on all continents except Antarctica. Orchids are frequently celebrated for their exceptional morphological and ecological diversity and are highly valued in the horticultural trade. Orchids exhibit distinct floral and physiological features, such as fused male and female flower parts forming the gynostemium, a floral lip often adorned with calli, glands, spurs, and distinctive color patterns, and the crassulacean acid metabolism (CAM), a water-saving physiological pathway which has evolved multiple times independently within the family. Orchids possess highly specialized ecological relationships, such as often species-specific plant-pollinator interactions including food- and sexual deception and dependence on mycorrhizal fungi for germination of their minute seed.
