  Books on Monstera.
From: "Julius Boos" ju-bo at email.msn.com> on 2000.06.14 at 21:39:00(4770)
To all into Caladiums and other related genera--

Peter Boyce commented on Madison`s work on Monstera, and the same can be
said of Madison`s ground-breaking work on Caladium and other related genera,
we (Lynn Hannon and myself) are struggling to wade through it now while
working on Chlorospatha (and Caladiom!)
Too much lumping of good species!

Pete, I so look forward to the paper you will soon ( I hope!) be publishing
on these genera!! To all other members, get 'The Genera of Araceae' by S.
J. Mayo, J. Bogner and Peter Boyce, and also Pete`s work on the genus Arum,
then you will see why I so look forward to Pete`s work in progress! THIS is
how papres/books should be written!!!

These books (and others!) should be available either from The Internation
Aroin Society or from Kew, WELL worth the price, true treasures, and in the
case of Pete`s work on Arum, the art work (color!) of the species
illustrated are fantastic!
