Hi all, I would be interested in knowing the Araceae of the West Indies,
preferably of Martinique and Barbados. Im sure these two islands are not
high in species, at least not the latter, but I know of several Anthurium
Monstera species occuring on Martinique, and at least one Anthurium on
Does anyone have species lists for either of the islands or has anyone
to these islands first hand to witness aroid species? Does Montrichardia or
Dieffenbachia grow on either of these islands? How about Urospatha?
By the way I have changed my internet service so my old email address (to
those of you who knew me from email@example.com) is no longer in service.
Thanks in advance, Michael Mattlage
