Hello friends & folks

I made a poster about perianth development of Acorus calamus, the famous
Sweetflag (I know it is no Aroid, but Aroid-L may forgive me)

You can download it as PDF Adobe Acrobat format from the url:


(There are two tipoes - can you find them?)

Best wishes

Au contrair, Acorus is a member of the Acoroideae family of aroids.

Hey guys, let's keep this one straight: Acoroideae is/WAS a SUBfamilie
of Araceae. However, Matyas is right because most aroidologists these
days consider Acorus NOT a member of the Araceae (see Mayo, Bogner &
Boyce, Genera of..., p. 32). The most recent surveys of DNA seem to
support the removal of Acorus well. I don't know if we have to be happy
with this, but there it is!
