Urbanisation has contributed to significant biodiversity loss, yet, urban areas can facilitate biodiversity conservation. For instance, there is evidence of urban trees supporting natural establishments of orchids, the most species-rich plant family on Earth. However, the germination niches—which include both suitable biophysical conditions and orchid mycorrhizal fungus/fungi (OMF)—are not sufficiently known for most species, especially tropical epiphytic orchids. The fate of their dispersed… CONTINUE READING
