Makoto Tahara, Viet Xuan Nguyen, Hiromichi Yoshino Karyotype analyses on diploid and tetraploid of Alocasia odora K. Koch (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: The karyotypes of diploid (2n = 2X 28) and tetraploid (2n = 4x = 56) forms of Alocasia odora (Roxb.) K. Koch were analyzed to determine their cytological relationship. The chromosome length and morphology were found similar between the two ploidy types. Phylogenetic relationship investigated by polymorphism of 13 enzyme systems also suggested closeness of the two ploidy types of A. odora.

Dorothy E. Shaw Damage to plants and ingestion of fruit and seeds of Alocasia brisbanensis (F. M. Bailey) Domin (Araceae) by the bush-turkey (Alectura lathami (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: Damage to the leaves, petioles and peduncles of fruiting plants of Alocasia brisbanensis by the Brush-turkey (Alectura lathamt) occurred as a consequence of the birds trying to reach the fruit. Tests showed that the turkey will pick mature red fruit from spadices, and with some difficulty, green fruit (if the infructescences are within reach) and that it will eat detached ripe red fruit, red fruit pulp, seeds free from pulp, immature green fruit and less readily, unfertilized florets. It is not known whether the seed is regurgitated, crushed in the gizzard, digested in the gastro- intestinal tract, or voided, and if the last, whether it is still viable or not. Information on the ingestion of other aroid fruit by birds and animals is also listed.

 ABSTRACT: Some plants of the indigenous 'cunjevoi' [Alocasia brisbanensis (F.M. Bailey) Domin, formerly known in Australia as A. macrorrhiza, -rrhizos (L.) G. Do n] grow in a gully in a simulated rainforest at Indooroopilly near a bank of the Brisbane River and reach a height of about 8 feet (2.4 m) (Fig. 1). On 6 March 1998, during an inspection of the few remaining infructescences (fruiting heads) left on the plants after the current season, an Eastern Water Dragon (Physignathus lesueurii Gray lesueurit) was found eating the ripe, fleshy red berries still remaining on one of the fru iting heads.

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.
