The Calypso orchid and the mountain goat upon the mountain's peaks suggest their Greek counterparts who in turn recall the splendid but flawed culture of Greece, an alien idealism set in contrast to the realism of the mountain and its inhabitants.

 The Botanical Society of America's American Journal of Botany Abstracts Online - Effect of Pollination Success on ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
We studied senescence in the single-flowered, deceptive orchid Calypso bulbosa by manipulating the degree of male and female reproductive success.
Deceptive (i.e., rewardless) flowers are more likely to satisfy male than female function since the latter requires that a pollinator be fooled twice, first to pick up pollen and second to deposit it.
A survey of naturally pollinated Calypso showed that male function, pollinium removal, was more likely to occur than female function, deposition (95% vs. 66% of visited flowers); thus floral senescence in Calypso is triggered by achievement of the function less likely to succeed.
