Peer-Reviewed Journal Articles

Researchers publish their findings in peer-reviewed journals so other academics may use their findings to help further the body of knowledge on that topic. Journal articles published on the orchid conservation research conducted on the Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge, and in the greater state of Florida, are included on this page.

If you use any information in these journal articles, please properly cite the article. You may refer to guidelines from the Purdue Online Writing Lab for assistance on proper citation.
