Richard C. Sheffer, William L. Theobald, Haruyuki Kamemoto Taxonomy of Anthurium scandens (Araceae) (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: Anthurium scandens (Aublet) Engler is the most common and widely distributed of all Anthurium species ranging throughout the West Indies and tropical Central and South America. The habit is generally a small, vining, inconspicuous, usually epiphytic aroid. Specimens are occasionally cultivated for their attractive fruits which are sometimes eaten. In the past, the strong and flexible stems were used for making baskets and for tying together the framework of huts (Standley, 1937).
Haruyuki Kamemoto Anthurium breeding in Hawaii (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: Anthurium andraeanum Linden ex Andre was introduced into Hawaii from London by S. M. Damon in 1889. The spathe color of the first introduction was shellpink. Plants were cultivated in the Damon Estate in Moanalua, Oahu, and by the 1930's had been distributed to other estates, nurseries and hobbyists. Dissemination up to that time was relatively slow due to the inherently slow rate of vegetative propagation of anthuriums. In the late 1930's and 1940's growers had learned to propagate anthuriums from seeds. This resulted in the widespread cultivation of this species and its variants in Hawaii. The novel, exotic, attractive and long-lasting anthurium inflorescences began to appear with regularity in local flower shops.

 ABSTRACT: In 1974 we germinated seeds from open-pollinated flowers of A. scherzerianum which was growing directly below a plant of A. wendLingeri. Two distinct groups of offspring resulted: A. scherzerianum and the species hybrid, A. scherzerianum X A. wendlingeri.

 ABSTRACT: The Hawaiian Anthurium Society (formerly known as the American Anthurium Society) has been interested in establishing a vehicle to register anthurium cultivars. In 1982 the Society approved the registration of cultivars and appointed a Registration Committee.
Mari Marutani, Surawit Wannakrairoj, Haruyuki Kamemoto Chromosome studies on Anthurium amnicola and its hybrids (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: Anthurium amnicola has a somatic chromosome number of 30, the most common number in the genus. There are two pairs of large metacentric chromosomes, three pairs of fairly large acrocentric chromosomes, one pair of satellite chromosomes, and nine pairs of either metacentric or acrocentric small chromosomes. At prometaphase I of meiosis in pollen mother cells 15 bivalents were formed. A. amnicola hybridized readily with A. andraeanum, A. lindenianum, and A. formosum in the section Calomystrium as well as the cultivars 'Calypso' and 'Trinidad' of unknown origin. All interspecific hybrids examined meiotically formed 15 pairs, and all except two hybrids with A. lindenianum showed more than 90% normal tetrad formation. Pollen stainability of these hybrids with acetocarmine ranged from 3.3% to 27.8%, compared to 87.5% in A. amnicola. It is concluded that A. amnicola is genetically closely related to species in section Calomystrium.
