ABSTRACT
The article reports that orchid research is hindered by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES), which currently prohibits the trade of specimens between botanists. Since CITES categorizes orchids as a protected species, it is difficult for botanists to research the plants. Researchers call for reform in order to be able to study the orchid species facing extinction.
