Eric A. Christenson was a research taxonomist with strong interests in the Aeridinae (Sarcanthinae), neotropical floristics, and the conservation of horticultural plants. He did field work in Peru, Guyana, and French Guiana and authored the orchid treatment for the Vascular Flora of Central French Guiana. A prolific author of more than 300 publications, Dr. Christenson attempted to bridge the gap between taxonomy and horticulture, and was a strong advocate for orchid conservation, particularly ex situ propagation. He died in 2011.
