Seidenfaden orkidesamlinger

The Seidenfaden Database of Orchids is an electronic register of the spirit-preserved orchid specimens and the original line drawings and colour slides of orchids that make up part of the Seidenfaden collection at the Natural History Museum, University of Copenhagen. The renowned orchidologist and former Danish ambassador to Thailand, Gunnar Seidenfaden (1908-2001) was the main responsible for changing the Thai orchid flora from one of the least known to one of the best known orchid floras in tropical Asia. In his later years, he also published important revisions of the orchid flora in former Indochina, Peninsular Malaysia/Singapore and certain parts of India.
