Well said! I agree, and can only wish that when I was starting off into aroids that a site like that created by Steve existed, man, my life would have been great!
We can only HOPE that those ''out there'', especially the younger ones and those just starting out into this wonderful hobby/passion do appreciate everything that Steve has done and continues to do to advance the general knowledge on aroids, and to ''spread the word'' as he does so unselfishly.
Keep up the GREAT work, Steve!
> Let me weigh in on Steve and his wonderful notes. There is science of the sort buried in little-read journal papers. And then there is the promulgation of knowledge to a wider and interested audience.
> To me Steve is an amazingly unselfish person. He adopts the completely constructive approach of allowing unlimited comment and correction. This is also science. It is true to the notion that scientific opinion is conditional on new information coming in. What emerges is a living source, populated by expert opinion and the best photographs anywhere.
