Orchids are plants particularly sensitive to environmental and climatic changes, as their reproduction and germination require very specific conditions, such as the presence of trees to support them, associations with different species of microorganisms that favor their growth and development, and sufficient humidity and shade. This is why, in a plant succession such as the one given in ecological restoration, they are some of the last plants to appear. The Bachué Nature Reserve has gone from being a cattle pasture without trees to a forest with more than 40 species of orchids registered so far, demonstrating the scope that these restoration processes can have.
