dc.descriptionA total of 320 orchid species are registered for the biodiverse region of Soconusco in the southeastern tip of Mexico. Given certain social, political, and legal limitations, the most productive strategy for preserving and restoring populations of the various species in danger of extinction, endemic, and over-exploited has been to work directly, intensively, and long-term with communities situated within or near to the few remaining hot spots of orchid diversity and abundance. With the appropriate permits, sustainable orchid cultivation has been established in various communities. We continue with long-term research into key aspects of the biology and ecology of orchids, identification of refuge sites, and modeling of geographical distribution of species.en-US
dc.descriptionUn total de 320 de orquídeas se han registrado para la región del Soconusco en el extreme sureste de México. Dado los inherentes limitantes sociales, políticos y legales, parece ser que la estratégica más productiva para preservar y restaurar poblaciones de las varias especies en peligro de extinción, endémicas y sobreexplotadas es el trabajo directo, intensivo y a largo plazo con las comunidades ubicadas dentro o cerca de los pocos puntos calientes restantes de diversidad y abundancia de orquídeas. Con los debidos permisos, se han establecido cultivos sustentables de orquídeas en varias comunidades y se continúa con investigaciones a largo plazo sobre aspectos claves de la biología y ecología de las orquídeas, la identificación de sitios de refugio y la modelación de la distribución geográfica de especies.es-ES
