At the meeting of the Gila Native Plant Society on Friday, February 16, 2018, noted botanist Richard Felger will present a talk entitled "March to the North: the Last Tropical Orchid". Orchids, oaks, agaves, yuccas, daturas, cacti and so many other plants are hugely diverse towards the tropics but only a few march to the north. Dr. Felger will seek to address these questions: How do the poleward outliers achieve their northern march? How do they differ east and west of the North American continental divide? And how do they compare with their counterparts in the Old World and in the Southern Hemisphere?
