Thank you Jason for your feedback.  Maybe I'll somehow get through this
change of Editor and be everything to all.  They don't lynch people in
Ireland.  I won't repeat all I said about the Newsletter as maybe I've said
enough already but it has got to be a proper Society synergy between public
Aroid-L and prestigious reference Aroideana..

| That pretty much sums up what my understanding was: Aroideana was/is a
scientific journal, like Biotropica or Annals of Botany, but on a smaller
scale.  The IAS newsletter, as the name implies, is for news -- IAS and
other aroid-related events and happenings.

| Indeed.  My very first year in IAS, I saw an announcement for a symposium
of the International Society for Tropical Root Crops -- an organization not
in any way affiliated with IAS.  It was a valuable tip, for otherwise I
would never have known about what turned out to be a very interesting
symposium.  I propose that, in addition to after-the-fact reports of
collecting trips, such trips should be made known beforehand, in the
planning stages, in case perchance a reader has a certain expertise that
might help the expedition.
