Nora De Angelli commemorates a man whose astonishingly quick mind was lost too soon to the world of orchids. During his short but productive career, Noël Bernard (1874–1911) shed much light on the nature of the endophytic fungi found in orchids and their importance to their survival. His major discovery was the symbiotic germination of orchid seeds.
