    Orchids - Lady Slippers - Cypripedium

The staminode (sterile stamen) is often showy and seems to welcome the insect into the pouch where it makes its way to a back-door exit and in so doing transfers pollen to the stigma.

    The Green Scene - Saprophytic Orchids

    in Environment

    On Friday June 26th at 8pm est, 7pm cst and 5pm pst, hosts Ken McKeighen and Ken Boorman will discuss the saprophytic orchids and their unique way of life. They reveal themselves only when they bloom. In the astonishing world of the botany,the saprophytic orchids are different from others due to the fact that they donot carry chlorophyll. Therefore,they need to find food from the organic matters on the forest floor and through the help of the mycorrhizal fungi. The saprophytic orchids will allow mycorrhizal fungi to live inside the tubers or the roots. Those fungi will emit the enzyme to digest the organic matters and will in turn bring about the mutrition needed for the orchids. Water and sugar from the orchids would be the elements given to the fungi in return. This is an example of how they survive by helping each other, amazingly.

    Monsters of Nature - Carrion Beetles

    in Environment

    On June 23rd at 8pm est, 7pm cst and 5pm pst, join Ray Owczarzak and Ken McKeighen as they discuss the insects that are nature's cleanup crew Carrion Beetles.These beetles help remove dead animals from the landscape by eating the carcasses. Also included in this discussion will be the dung beetles. These interesting beetles are also part of nature's cleanup crew by removing and burying dung. Members of this group eat dead animals or scavenge dung or decaying plant material. Adults and larvae often eat the same thing. The particular dining habits vary with species. Some simply eat the carcass. Others eat fly maggots that eat the carcass. Burying beetles (genus Nicrophorus) dig soil from beneath a fallen animal, causing the corpse eventually to sink beneath the dirt piling up around it. Then the burying beetles remove fur or feathers and prepare the meat for their larvae.
