...oh Mahon reminds me that the mans name is 'Phillip J. Cribb' and I do feel he placed the regulations on all orchids to his advantage, especially paphiopedilum. It's funny during greenhouse raids he would confiscate paphs exclusively and even though someone would have phals, catts, dends, etc. that were 'smuggled' he would never confiscate plants from other genera.
And still he can't back up on how his regulations can increase endangered orchid populations when he is asked. I haven't heard of him doing much with wildlife conservation but rather increasing his herbarum and orchid collection, because he has the privilege to take orchids across borders.
Well someone has to name the plants so every species is in a universal and orderly fashion. Otherwise each group of people would be calling the same thing something by a different name causing confusion. And scientists could not tell which species is related to or evolved from which species, nor will anything be well documented. If some of today's orchid discoverers were less egoistic, naming would descibe the plant. Other plants/animals have epithets that actually help descibe the species which is helpful if you knew some latin.
