Aroiders, below is information on the Flora Malesiana Symposium to be held
in Sydney in a few months. Lyn Craven asked that we forward it to the
list, as one of the workshops is on Araceae. A web site address and Lyn's
e-mail are both included for those who want more information. Sounds like
fun, wish I could go.
Aroid enthusiasts may be interested to know that there will be a workshop
on the Araceae of the Malesian region (the aroid-rich islands between Asia
and Australia) at an international meeting being held in Sydney, Australia
in September this year.
If you are in eastern Australia at that time, you may like to attend for
part or all of the meeting. (Day registrations are accepted).
