The paper gives a brief account of the latest results in numerous aspects of life-cycle and population characteristics of the terrestrial orchids by reviewing the current literature. Main parts are: age-states, lifecycle and life span; dynamics of flowering, cost of reproduction, flowering response to the weather variables and to habitat characteristics; dormancy; population dynamics of myco-heterotroph species; vegetative reproduction; population structure.

The main aim of this account is to provide a more detailed scientific background to the chapter entitled 'Life-cycle characteristics and the population dynamics of the European Orchids' in the forthcoming title Atlas of Hungarian Orchids published in Hungarian.
