Dear David and Peter:
It was my decision to add the list of publications and it was intended to exhibit why both individuals were worthy recipients of the rewards they received. Most of our readers would not have any idea about what they had published but now, for those who are interested, they do. ÂAs you said Pete, anyone interested n a particular title need only to ask about where to find it.Â Thanks for pointing to the link for Sin Yengâs bountiful productions.
David, also we have no limitations on the length of newsletter articles since they cost us essentially nothing. We would welcome your contributions too.

I was not party to the inclusion of the publication lists but I welcome them being offered in the Newsletter, if nothing else the inclusion of them for Li Heng - surely one of the oldest still active professional aroiders, and Sin yeng, one of the most recent recruits to the scientific ranks for the family, provides an elegant comparison.
For the record Wong's publications are ALL available, free to download in PDF format, from the IAS Website - http://www.aroid.org/gallery/wong/ - this information of availability has been posted on several occasions on Aroid-l and in FB

PRO - The extensive amount of color photography was wonderful and one can really obtain an understanding of the plants being described.
PRO - The disclosure of the annual meeting business, including financial statements and minutes, may have been done in the past, but they are surely open in the Newsletter, which can only be good.
CON - The extensive amount of publishing credits following the articles on Wong Sin Yeng and Li Heng deract not only from the article, but from the overall newsletter. While some of the publications listed look rather interesting, one wonders where they have been and why they are not available?
Just back from a long weekend, and read the newsletter. It is really impressive. It amazes me, Peter. It seems like every time you go out side you find new species. Thank you for sharing this glimpse into our world's biodiversity.
