 ABSTRACT: Taking up the editorship of Aroideana is very much a mixed challenge. One half of me feels excited and, dare I say, honored, to be considered as editor of this splendid journal, the other half feels daunted at the prospect of stepping into Amy's shoes and taking up the job of continuing the impressive progress of what is now, justifiably, regarded as the world's premier publication place of all matters relating to aroids.

Josef Bogner, Peter C. Boyce, C.M. Sakuragui A revision of Alloschemone Schott (Araceae: Monstereae) (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: The genus Alloschemone Schott is revised. One new species, A. inopinata Bogner & P. C. Boyce, is recognized, and an expanded description of A. occidentalis (Poepp.) Engl. & K. Krause is presented. The distinguishing characters of the genus are discussed, especially with regard to the genus Scindapsus Schott, from which Alloschemone has been considered inseparable. Both genera have unilocular ovaries with basal placentation with one ovule; Alloschemone differs from Scindapsus by a pinnatifid leaf lamina (entire in Scindapsus), shoot architecture, anatomical differences, and Neotropical distribution (Scindapsus Paleotropical). Our new species has fused filaments, a unique character in Monstereae, and further differs from A. occidentalis by the narrower leaf pinnate separated by an oblong sinus. Seeds, often diagnostically very useful in Monstereae, are still unknown in Alloschemone and are highly desirable.

Peter C. Boyce Arum -- a decade of change (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: When published in 1993 The Genus Arum (Boyce, 1993) presented for the first time in 70 years, and ever in English, a tool to identify with some degree of confidence all of the 25 Arum species and their subordinate taxa then recognized. Inevitably since publication there have been changes in species delimitation as well as new discoveries, such that the species tally for Arum now stands at 28. Changes of note since 1993 include the recognition of two species treated then at subspecific rank within A. orientale Bieb. [A. longispathum Reich. & A. sintenisii (Eng!.) P. C. Boyce] while a further species [A. alpinariae (K. Alpinar & R. R. Mill) P. C. Boyce], treated then as a subspecies of A. elongatum Steven, is formally raised to the level of species in this paper. Additional study has resolved a number of issues including application of names for the species hitherto called A. alpinum Schott & Kotschy and the status of subordinal taxa in A. italicum Miller. These are all detailed below together with sundry other observations. While much work remains to be done on Arum it seems a worthwhile exercise to present an overview of these changes wrought in the past decade and to cast some pointers for work that still remains to be tackled.

Peter C. Boyce Studies on Schismatoglottideae (Araceae) of Borneo IV: Preliminary observations of spathe senescence mechanics in Schismatoglottis Zoll. & Moritzi in Sarawak (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: Recent alpha-taxonomic studies of Schismatoglottis Zoll. & Moritzi provide a sufficiently stable framework to facilitate taxonomically robust multidisciplinary research, notably molecular phylogenetic, ecological and phenological studies including analyses of morphological adaptations to specialized ecology (in particular rheophytism), and comparison of mechanical processes linked to pollination strategies (notably spathe senescence). Such data will later be mapped onto molecular-generated phylogenetic trees in order to analyse their origins. The various processes by which the spathe limb is shed during or post anthesis is the subject here of a preliminary discussion. The significance of these data is reviewed in terms of the currently proposed informal infrageneric groupings.

Peter C. Boyce Studies on Schismatoglottideae (Araceae) of Borneo V: Preliminary ecological observations of Schismatoglottis (Araceae: Schismatoglottideae) on Matang Massif (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: The family Araceae in Sarawak comprises 31 genera, with more than 350 species, while on the Matang Massif alone 35 species in 14 genera are recorded to date. Of these Schismatoglottis Zollo & Moritzi is the richest and most diverse genus with nine species (Schismatoglottis asperata Engl., S. conoidea Engl., S. grabowski/ Engl., S. mayoana Bogner & M. Hotta, S. motleyana (Schott) Engl., S. multiflora Ridl., S. cf. neroosa Ridl., S. tecturata (Schott) Engl., S. wallichii Hook f) belonging to four of the informal species groups sensu Hay & Yuzammi (2000). Two of these nine, (S. mayoana and S. cf. nervosa) are endemic to Matang. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of these taxa is their ecological diversity. This paper will highlight these ecological aspects and speculate on the speciation processes involved in bringing about such diversity in a single genus.

Peter C. Boyce Germinating aroid seeds - some observations (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: Many aroiders have questions about the best way to grow aroids from seed. A simple question, but like most simple and quick requests, the answer is far from short and easy. Since a number of articles relating to other methods of propagation had been submitted for this issue, it seemed to be a good idea to round these out by inviting contributions from some of the most active members of the society. These were the responses, sometimes going further than the practical by reminding us of the importance of increasing and spreading aroids in collections since so much of their habitat is being lost.

Peter C. Boyce Why is 'Flora Malesiana' Araceae not currently a practicable undertaking - Fenestratarum as an example (Read)
 ABSTRACT: Flora Malesiana is a systematic account of the flora of Malesia, the plant-geographical unit spanning seven countries in Southeast Asia: Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei Darussalam, the Philippines, Timor Leste, and Papua New Guinea. The Araceae is one of the larger plant families of Malesia, currently comprising 42 described genera and, conservatively, about 1200 species. A substantial proportion of Malesian aroid species are either only recently named, or have yet to be formally described. Despite encouraging progress with regional monographic accounts in the1990s and early 2000s, notably for Alocasia, Schismatoglottis, Pothos, Epipremnum, and Rhaphidophora, the intervening years, marked by a significant increase in field-based research, have revealed an extraordinary wealth of novel diversity such that none of the terrestrial and rheophytic genera can be currently be considered adequately known. Highlighting increases in described species in the past 15 years, and drawing on the example of the recently described genus Fenestratarum, reasons why Flora Malesiana Araceae is not currently practicable are enumerated, and practicable alternatives proffered.

Sin Yeng Wong, Hoe Yin Chen, Peter C. Boyce Studies on Schismatoglottideae (Araceae) of Borneo LIX – A preliminary conspectus of Schismatoglottis Calyptrata Complex Clade species for Sarawak (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: A preliminary conspectus of species of the Schismatoglottis Calyptrata Complex Clade for Sarawak is presented. Six species are accepted, of which Schismatoglottis baangongensis S.Y. Wong, Y.C. Hoe & P.C. Boyce is newly described, and S. muluensis M. Hotta is resurrected from within S. calyptrata (Roxb.) Zoll. & Moritzi. Current evidence does not support the presence of Schismatoglottis calyptrata sens. strict. in Sarawak, while occurrence on Borneo as a whole is questionable. A modified description of S. calyptrata, excluding characteristics of Bornean taxa hitherto included in synonymy is provided. An identification key to the accepted species for Sarawak is provided, and most are illustrated from living plants.

Peter C. Boyce, A. Haigh Rhaphidophora bogneri (Araceae: Monsteroideae: Monstereae) a new species from West Africa, and notes on the Rhaphidophora africana Complex (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: Rhaphidophora bogneri P. C. Boyce & Haigh is described as a new species from Gabon, equatorial West Africa, defined by inflorescences pendent during anthesis and fruiting. Rhaphidophora is additionally reviewed for Africa and three described species are accepted, of which R. africana N. E. Br. is considered undoubtedly polyphyletic, likely encompassing upwards of four species of which at least three are considered to be taxonomic novelties. Unfortunately, available preserved collections coupled with political circumstances prevailing throughout much of the species’ geographical range currently make a proper taxonomic treatment impossible. Rhaphidophora ovoidea A. Chev., described from fragmentary material from basalts, is treated as inadequately known. Rhaphidophora bogneri is illustrated from cultivated living plants, all described species are also illustrated from their nomenclatural types. The three accepted African Rhaphidophora species are delineated with a key.
