Josef Bogner Morphological variation in aroids (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: The Araceae or aroid., are a large family of about 2400 species, grouped in 107 genera and these again in nine subfamilies. The aroids are mainly a tropical family and are distributed world-wide. They show great variation in their morphological characters, which will be described in this paper along with some other data.
Alistair Hay Anaphyllopsis: A new neotropical genus of Araceae-Lasieae (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: It is proposed here that a new genus, Anaphyllopsis, be erected as an alternative to "lumping" Dracontium, Dracontioides and C. americanum. Were the latter course to be adopted, the resulting broad generic concept of Dracontium would be inconsistent with the existing rather narrow limits between other genera of the Lasieae such as Podolasia, Urospatba, Lasia and Cyrtosperma s.s. Two new species and one new combination of Anaphyllopsis are described, both, sadly, from single fragmentary collections: Anapbyllopsis pinnata A. Hay, sp. nov., Anaphyllopsis americana (Engler) A. Hay, comb. nov. and Anaphyllopsis cururuana A. Hay, sp. nov ..

Thomas B. Croat Ecology and life forms of Araceae (Buy Back Issue)
 ABSTRACT: The most interesting aspect of the family's ecology is the diversity of adaptive life forms. These range from submerged to free-floating, and emergent aquatics to terrestrial plants and to epilithic or epiphytic forms which may be true epiphytes or hemiepiphytic (growing on trees but rooted in soil). Hemiepiphytism is diverse itself, with some species beginning their lives as terrestrial seedlings, then growing skototropically (toward darkness) until they arrive at the nearest suitable tree ( usually a relatively large one which casts a darker shadow) where a physiological change takes place allowing them to grow toward light (Strong & Ray, 1975). They grow as appressed epiphytes on trees or as vines in the canopy. Others begin their lives as true epiphytes, some reconverting to hemiepiphytes by producing long, dangling roots contacting the forest floor below.
Gitte Peterson Chromosome numbers of the genera Araceae (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: An overview of the chromosome numbers of the genera of Araceae is given.
Thomas B. Croat Taxonomic status of neotropical aroids (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: While the Paleotropics has more genera than the Neotropics (60 versus 36) the latter area contains roughly twothirds the species of the world's Araceae. Our level of knowledge of the systematics of the neotropical Araceae varies greatly from area to area, owing largely to recent revisionary work or to the interest and area concentrated on by particular workers.
Julius O. Boos Observations on New World Araceae--Lasieae (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: Three neotropical Lasioids were cultivated and studied over a period of years. Observations were made which add to our knowledge of these poorly studied plants, some previously known only from a few herbarium specimens. Further research is urgently needed both in the lab and field as continuing deforestation seriously threatens the survival of several species in the wild. In addition, the culture of these semi-aquatic plants has proven difficult, and their survival in most collections is normally very short term. Methods for their successful cultivation have been outlined (Boos, 1993) and research continues to improve their long term survival. The genus Urospatba is in urgent need of revision. Two of the three described species of Anapbyllopsis are known only from a Single herbarium sheet.
Thomas B. Croat History and current status of systemic research with Araceae (Buy Back Issue)
 ABSTRACT: This paper will cover all systematic and floristic work that deals with Araceae which is known to me. It will not, in general, deal with agronomic papers on Araceae such as the rich literature on taro and its cultivation, nor will it deal with smaller papers of a technical nature or those dealing with pollination biology. It will include review papers on technical subjects and all works, regardless of their nature, of current aroid researchers. It is hoped that other reviews will be forthcoming which will cover separately the technical papers dealing with anatomy, cytology, physiology, palenology, and other similar areas and that still another review will be published on the subject of pollination biology of Araceae and the rich literature dealing with thermogenesis.
Eduardo G. Gonçalves Anaphyllopsis cururuana (Araceae) recollected in Brazil (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: The elusive Anaphyllopsis cururuana A. Hay was recollected for the first time since the type material. The original description was solely based in a fragmentary herbarium material, so a full description based on living plants, together with a new illustration, are both presented.
