as an associate editor for the Journal of Crustacean Biology, journals
typically publish the acceptable manuscripts submitted to them. Journals rarely
commission papers, unless there is a specific theme for a given issue. Sometimes
you get plenty of articles on a variety of topics submitted, but the authors
have done a terrible job. When paper is submitted that is in need of revision,
it is up to the editor and reviewers to alert the authors, who may or may not
want to bother and either submit elsewhere or are demoralized and give up.
is, if you want to see more articles on other taxa, then write them or
encourage and/ or collaborate with others to get them written. Remember that
whatever you write will get marked up extensively. That is okay. The editorial
and review processes are designed to help you to be a better writer. Do not be
discouraged if your article gets trashed. The review process is there to make you
the author and the journal stronger.
also like to mention that our beloved editor always sends pleas for article
submissions out on the Aroid List. So, obviously there are needs amongst the
readership and the editorship.
Oh, and I
like tuberous aroids too, so there. ;-)

Subject: Re: [Aroid-l] Aroideana
I agree with Russ.
But then it's probably what you like...I grow mostly Alocasias, Colocasias,
Xanthosomas, Dieffenbachias, Aglaonemas, philos and anthuriums. I have a
few tuberous aroids, but they do not interest me as much. Hopefully,
Aroideana will become more well-rounded in the future.
Discussion of aroids
and anthurium were largely treated decades ago in Aroideana. I have been
highly disappointed at the over-emphasis of amorphophallus and other tuberous
aroids in the most recent decades, so much so that I occasionally consider
canceling my membership and subscription. Sadly, aglaonema, syngonium,
raphidophora, epipremnum and other genera are only occasionally mentioned these
days. I guess I'm old school, I find the tuberous aroids boring and only
slightly interesting. I have no clue why they have taken Society members
received yesterday the latest issue of Aroideana.It is always the same pleasure
each time.If in the past Philo,Anthurium were largely treated ,but now ,Arum
and others mediterranean genus are not missed and the article of Kerim Alpinar
is especialy interesting!
it more intersting than 90' issues;Thanks to all writers contributors for
their useful work!
this opportunity to inform aroiders who received from me in 2004 Amorphophallus
sp. from Malawi bulbs that I can confirm the species : Amorphophallus
larger tuber has flowering in june and revelated his identity.
species I collected in north Zambia also has flowering too for the
first time :A.mossambicensis.
african species are not so hard to grow and corm storage is easier
than Asian species.
rest,we get the worst weather I ever experienced for a growing season: Lot
of rains,few sun,low T0 and no summer conditions...totaly crazy!
any doubt,I prefer dry and hot summer we had previously!
