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.
Thomas B. Croat Aroid profile no. 10. Taccarum weddellianum (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: Taccarum weddellianum Brongn. ex Schott, ranges from southern Brazil (Acre, Matto Grosso) to Bolivia and Paraguay, occurring in seasonally dry habitats, where the plants Croat 95 lose their solitary leaf during all or part of the dry season.
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.
Eduardo G. Gonçalves New aroid taxa from Brazil (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: Six new taxa of Brazilian Araceae are here described and illustrated (Philodendron nullinervium E.G.Gonc.; Philodendron tenuispadix E.G.Gonc.; Taccarum crassispathum E.G.Gonc.; Xanthosoma acutum E.G.Gonc., Xanthosoma rotundatum E.G.Gonc. and Xanthosoma pulchrum E.G.Gonc.). Along with them, a new name (Philodendron humile E.G.Gonc.) is proposed for Homalomena solimoense G.M.Barroso, since this has proved to be a species of Philodendron, and simply transferring the epithet as a new combination in Philodendron is likely to lead to confusion with the pre-existing name Philodendron solimoesense A.C. Smith.
Eduardo G. Gonçalves Elucidating the elusive Taccarum warmingii (Araceae - Tribe Spathicarpeae) (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: Since it was described by Adolf Engler in 1880, the exact identity of the Brazilian Taccarum warmingii has remained obscure. Recently, the type material of this species was examined and a new collection was made in Espirito Santo state, Eastern BraziL Taccarum warmingii is described in details and illustrated, also based on living specimens now in cultivation. A revised key for the genus Taecarum is also presented.
Eduardo G. Gonçalves A new species and two new combinations for the tribe Spathicarpeae (Araceae) (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: A new species of Asterostigma (A. reticulatum E.G.Gonc.) from Southern Brazil is described and illustrated. Two new Andean combinations are also presented. Spathantheum intermedium Bogner and Taccarum cardenasianum Bogner are transferred to the genus Gorgonidium as G. intermedium (Bogner) E.G.Gonc. and G. cardenasianum (Bogner) E.G.Gonc. respectively, and the arguments for both recombinations are presented.
Josef Bogner The genus Bognera Mayo and Nicolson (Araceae) (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: The genus Bognera Mayo & Nicolson with its single species Bognera recondita (Madison) Mayo & Nicolson, is described and illustrated and its relationships are discussed in detail. Discussions of its history, discovery, distribution, ecology, pollination, etymology and cultivation are given. The genus Bognera is characterized by its creeping rhizome shoot architecture with two cataphylls preceding each foliage leaf, the last one partly enveloping the petiole (a character unique in the family), the essentially parallel-pinnate venation type (philodendroid) but with third order veins in a clearly reticulate pattern, the unconstricted spathe, the stamens of each male flower connate into a synandrium, the female flowers lacking staminodes, the unilocular ovary with a single anatropous ovule on a basal placenta and the inaperturate pollen grains with smooth (psilate) exine.
