I'd like to join Julius in congratulating Derek and the authors on a job well done - strangely I received my copy on the same day as Julius. It's a lot of work to put out a big book like this every year.
For those of you who are not IAS members - the journal is NOT just full of peer-reviewed scientific articles, but as Julius noted, also contains plenty of information that is interesting to the hobby grower. If you'd like to see the beautiful cover of the current issue, I just loaded it into our cover archive at http://www.aroid.org/aroideana/backissues/ - hopefully the articles will be inserted into Paul Resslar's index database soon and you'll be able to see the table
of contents online too...

I received my copy of the new Aroideana earlier today, and talk about something that was SO worth waiting for! WHAT AN ISSUE! Congrats to our tireless Editor Derek Burch, and to all the authors who are responsible to such an eclectic collection and mix of both scientific AND ''popular'' articles and papers!
We will, I am sure, all have or personal favorites, but mine was one of two of Josef Bogner`s articles, the one on Zomicarpella, a tiny plant which I have been researching the origins of and wondering about for over 20 years, way back since there was a photo. of the one leaf and a bloom from cultivation in 1881, with no real info. but published in a REAL early issue of Aroideana (Vol. 1, No. 3),Tom Croats article on Colombian aroids, superbly written and illustrated (as usual!), all the other scientific descriptions by Pete Boyce and others, and the wonderful papers on private
collections/gardens by M. Challis, Steve Lucas and Leland Miyano which I have already read, plus I still have left all the other authors from Holland, India, France (nice work, Genevieve!) This volume will keep me busy reading for days to come.
As one would say back in my Trinidad, W.I. (land of "de chubas"), "Allyuh, dat is one book fada!" (All of you, that is the father of books).
