I dont think the AIS is very popular and thus doesnt have the funds to put forth the aforementioned books each year. They are very poor.

Jason all the Orchids, bulbs, Cactus and Succulents publication have colors pictures.
We still discuss about "sex of the angels" IAS publish only one time a year, all the other society usually with the same fee give 4 to 12 publication in full color every year.

Actually, wouldn't that be even more complicated?  Converting the colour photos to b&w for the paper issue would be an expense in itself.  It would not work just to photocopy them with a b&w copier -- most of the quality is lost that way, and you end up with a nearly-illegible picture.
 
Oh, incidentally:
Marco wrote, "I have subscritions to many other plants related publication, AROIDEANA is the only one with B&W pictures!"  Well, I do not know specifically which publications he has in mind, but since my subscriptions tend to be focused on scientific journals (i.e. primary literature), I find that very few have colour photos, except in those relatively rare cases where colour is necessary to illustrate a crucial detail.  For example, in _Madrono_, the journal of the California Botanical Society, there are rarely any colour photos, even in taxonomic or new species papers.  I think perhaps the difficulty we face here is related to what was mentioned earlier, that _Aroideana_ is one of the few publications to bridge the gap between scientists and growers.  The two communities have very different needs.

This is a great idea. I would pay the membership if I got a paper issue with b/w photos and a pdf with colour photos.

  Hi to all,
  I know that the publication with color picture is more expansive then b&w but fortunately there are many other solution as PDF files and so on
  I think that IAS can ask to subscribers if are interested to switch to color publication in electronic format, I think that all have a computer at work or at home.
  There are many way to protect the publication, as to avoid illegal copy and deny the printing option.
  Using electronic publication IAS can have less expensive work and capability to manage more article or use more money for research, and finally publish the Wilbert's book on Amorphophallus.
  This is the only way to contain maintain or increase the subscribers, I have subscritions to many other plants related publication, AROIDEANA is the only one with B&W pictures!


  Best regards


  Marco Motta
