Dan H. Nicholson Translation of Engler's classification of Araceae with updating (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: When Hooker (1883) was preparing the treatment of Araceae (Aroideae) for the monumental 'Genera Plantarum,' he basically followed the Schottian system, incorporating Engler's (1879) reduction in the number of genera. The first system was "popularized" by Hutchinson (1959) who, with a reversal of the sequence (bisexual genera first), published essentially an English translation of Hooker's latin. Engler (1905-1920), in his monumental 'Das Pflanzenreich', produced his final treatment of the family, including all then known species in nine volumes. This work remains the standard reference for the family as a whole.

F. D. Ghani Ornamental and edible aroids of peninsular Malaysia (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: Most aroids are widely distributed in the tropics and subtropics with a few species in temperate regions. The majority occur in the countries of South East Asia, South and Central America, Africa and the West Indies. The family has a total of 110 genera and ca. 2500 species (Croat, 1979), 92% of which are in South East Asia and Central and South America. In Malaysia alone there are 23 native genera and about 120 species (Henderson, 1954).

Thomas B. Croat, Nancy Lambert The Araceae of Venezuela (Buy Back Issue)
 ABSTRACT: An illustrated treatment of 171 Venezuelan Araceae taxa is provided. Discussion of range, species characteristics and distinction from similar or closely related species is made for each taxon. Sixteen species, three subspecies and one variety are described as new, and three new combinations are made.
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.
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.
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.
Alistair Hay A new Bornean species of Schismatoglottis (Araceae)
This article available FREE to IAS Members with a PERSONAL login. LOGIN, REGISTER or JOIN
 ABSTRACT: The genera of Schismatoglottideae in Malesia have been revised recently (Hay & Yuzammi, 2000; Bogner & Hay, 2000). A subsequent visit to the enormous aroid collection of Arden Dearden at Redlynch in tropical Queensland elicited a new species of Schismatoglottis, Schismatoglottis ardenii A. Hay, sp.nov., which is described here.
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.
