Lou Jost:  
"New Orchid Species in Ecuador"

Lou Jost has been fascinated by nature at an early age and got his first bird field guide at the age of nine.  He was growing tropical orchids in his parents' basement in Wisconsin at age 11.  He is a physicist and mathematician by training and along life's pathway, Lou was lured to the vibrant life of tropical forests.  His accomplishments includes photographing, painting and studying the birds and plants of Costa Rica , Mexico , and Ecuador .   He illustrated the book 'Common Birds of Amazonian Ecuador' (written by Chris Canaday). His current project is the in-depth study of Ecuadorian orchids in which he has discovered over 50 new orchid species.
