Re: [Aroid-l] Aroideana



Speaking 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.


My advice 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.


I would 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. ;-)


Happy days to all,

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.

Philodendron 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 by storm.

Dear Aroiders,


I 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!


I find it more intersting than 90' issues;Thanks to all  writers contributors for their useful work!


I take this opportunity to inform aroiders who received from me in 2004 Amorphophallus sp. from Malawi bulbs that I can confirm the species : Amorphophallus impressus.

One larger tuber has flowering in june and revelated his identity.


A second species I collected in north Zambia also has flowering too for the first time :A.mossambicensis.


Those african species are not so hard to grow and corm storage is easier than  Asian species.


for the 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!

Without any doubt,I prefer dry and hot summer we had previously!


Best regards,


Jean-luc , France
