Re: [IGSROBIN] where did they all come from?

Andrew & Robin, 
	Here is a condensed Pelargonium species List. This will not overwhelm 
you! In fact most of these are species that are easier to work with. The 
information here is based on a Lecture done by Dr. James (Jim) Sefton last 
year. I needed to get the data into my computer anyway so here it is:
	My miscellaneous page is like a time line that gives a historical 
overview  on Plants. I welcome anyone to build off from where I started and 
add their own knowledgeable information on the subject.
	 Like the Swedish Botanist that started plant classification, set up 
organization in groups of character???Was that Lenayus? Date?
Then there is his student Carl Tungberg ? who looked for the pelargoniums 
with Frances Mason in South Africa. Dates???

Note:	Most Pelargoniums species are found around the Cape area of S. 
Africa.	  		Unfortunately this was also the desired area at which 
settlements sprung up.	
	The S.W.A./Namibia, areas often would have less	than an		
	inch a year.
	The number of native species increases as you go south down the
	West coast and turn toward Cape Agulhas going east.

	Miscellaneous Elaboration's are welcomed!

	In 1630 in England, the period of expansion of plant knowledge 
	was in the works. Learning about male and female parts 
	and pollen allowed for the Classification of plant material to happen.

	In 1738 Johanna's Berman was the 1st person to use the term 
	Pelargonium, arriving from South Africa.
	British take over the cape- figured out hybridizing, hot house
	propagation in England, (hybrids between two species, some
	species are know  lost 1820, 1830, known only by drawings)
	1830 Microscope invention-allowed for botanists to see how pollenation

	1850 Darwin shows relationship between plants and evolution.

	19th Century gardens cultivated regals. Lord Butte 1870s was 
	popular in gardens. Thomas Jefferson planted them around
	 his estate.
