Standardization of Anthurium descriptions
By Thomas B. Croat and George S. Bunting     (Buy)


A standardization of terminology for both new species descriptions and for floristic treatments would benefit other aroid workers as well as the general users of these works, since complete and uniform descriptions allow for more accurate comparisons. Furthermore, it is necessary to define the many special terms which are necessary to properly describe the species of An thurium. Some of these terms are used here for the first time, and while they are intended especially for use with Anthurium, many are equally appropriate for describing other genera of Araceae and plants of many other families.
