To anyone on Jelle’s list !


I’m not trying to prevent anyone else who was approached from answering more fully, but this seems to me to be about the only level at which I can respond.  Derek

I’m glad that you are getting deeper into this, although the next step is a big one. You can find the technical information of the division into groups at this aroid-l site http://www.aroid.org/genera/anthurium/   Not easy reading, though, and I find that I’m not familiar enough with the group to visualise the plants described by the authors without hunting down pictures of examples.


Good luck

Thank you for your answer.

I've already visited Anthura in the Netherlands.

But I've got some specific questions for you. I 'm interested in the taxonomic situation of the Anthurium.

I've also read that the Anthurium is devided in sections. On what are these sections based? Do you have more information about this item?

many thanks, Jelle

What a big subject you have chosen for your final period of work!  There is so much available on this that I would not know where to start in helping you. Do you know the website of the International Aroid Society,  http://www.aroid.org/aroid_l/   I would suggest that you start there, and then come to us with some specific questions. There is a wonderful company doing a lot of breeding work in the Netherlands. Their website is at



Good luck with this work.


Derek Burch

I'm Jelle Wouters, student horticulture in Leuven, Belgium. I'm doing  my last year middle school. As a last year student I 've to make an end work. I've chosen as subject  the Anthurium plant.


For the moment I am busy searching for the origin and naming of this plant . After many searches I finally arrived  at some botanici like  Mr. Heinrich Wilhelm Schott, Dr Croat, Linden,... I have already found much information on this  botanici.  Tough I gladly want to have more information regarding this botanici.


But, I'm also very interested in the taxonomy, morfology, ect... of the Araceae.


I would be very greatfull  to obtain information about some of these people (there biography's,  books,  works or  drawnings ect,...) or information about the genus/family.


Thank you in advance,


Jelle Wouters

Horticulture student
