Orchid diversity: Spatial and climatic patterns from herbarium records

This article covers tests conducted to better understand spatial and climatic patterns of diversification in the Orchidaceae, an angiosperm family characterized by high levels of species diversity and rarity. Globally, does orchid diversity correlate with land area? In Australia, does diversity correlate with herbarium collecting effort, range size, or climate niche breadth?
Where are Australia’s orchids distributed spatially, in protected areas, and in climate
space?
