About the Author: As a boy in Hawaii, James D. Ackerman pulled weeds from his grandfather's extensive orchid plantings. A disdain for weeds developed, but a fondness for orchids persisted. He completed a master's degree in 1976 at Humboldt State University in California, and went to Florida State University for doctoral studies under the direction of Norris Williams. His dissertation work on orchids and euglossine bees was done in Panama at the Smithsonian Tropical research Institute. In 1981, he took a job at teh Rio Piedras Campus of the University of Puerto Rico. He has since become Professor and Director of the Department of Biology, and has published more than 40 scientific articles, most of which deal with orchid poliination and systematics.
