Dear Marcus:


=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0 What is your cut off for early authors? =A0Would someone like Hemsley be important. =A0He worked early in Central America.=A0 I realize that most of the earliest collections were from the West Indies but in South America there were the early explorers like Spruce, Humbodlt, Sesse & Mocino and others. =A0Actually except to Poeppig few species of Araceae were described. =A0What about Kunth.=A0 Lord, he described more than anyone else even if he did not know anything about Araceae.


All the best,

Dear friends,

I am preparing a lecture on the list of Brazilian species of Araceae and would comment on the first records of the family in tropical America, especially Brazil.
I have the publications of Linn=E9, Marcggraf, Jaccard, Plumier, Piso and Velozzo. Does anyone have any other advice about other publications?

I thank you all.
