Re: Fiji--Kadavu Island

Not sure what your availability is to a good library, but A. C. Smith's
Flora Vitiensis Nova treats the flora of Fiji quite well.  Treatment of the
Araceae occurs in Volume 1 of this five volume + index work.  A.C. states
that there are 12 genera representing 14 species known to occur in Fiji.  Of
these, two are considered indigenous and one endemic.  If you will provide
me with your snail mail address, I can send you xerox copies of the 22 pages
on Araceae.
