It discusses the structure of bromeliad plants and their flowers with suggestions for ways to illustrate and better understand these exciting plants. Mr. Beckner was a longtime Florida botanist, horticulturist, and environmental consultant. He was a commercial grower of Bromeliads and Orchids, staged many show exhibits, built gardens utilizing these plants, and did extensive field observations. His CV includes over 100 scientific and popular publications on his various interests. Mr. Beckner was fortunate to have known (and often worked with) many of the leading Bromeliad experts such as Mulford Foster, Lyman Smith, Bob Wilson, Harry Luther, Denis Cathcart, David Barry, Victoria Padilla, to name a few. He worked extensively in herbaria and in the field with many prominent botanists. He taught short courses to full length academic courses.
