Your email rather gives the impression that you think Aroideana is simply a
vox pop. for the few 'scientists' who happen to belong to the IAS and that
the Newsletter is the for the real hard-core aroid folks who 'love their
plants' but whose writings and views are only worth putting into an
ephemeral publication. I think that does these folks a grave injustice.
The fact of the matter is that if all Aroideana is viewed as is a scientific
journal that, like so many others, is flicked through once and then
consigned to a shelf then there is something seriously wrong with the
Journal. Check out 'Palms' (aka Principes), no less scientific and erudite
than Aroideana but with a good selection of 'amateur'; stuff, and ask
yourself if that's not where Aroideana should be aiming.
