  Book and Plant questions
From: Mattlagem at aol.com on 2003.01.13 at 19:54:27(9838)
Does anyone know where I could find a copy of The Schismatoglottidinae or
Schismatoglottis of Malesia, sorry can't remember how it is named, but it is
by Alistair Hay. If I can remember correctly it was put out by the Royal
Botanic Gardens-Sydney. Also, does anyone know of a source for Homalomena
speariae? Thanks, Michael M.

Hello Michael,

The Schismatoglottiideae book was issued as a volume of Telopea: A Journal of
Plant Systematicsand should be available from the Gardens in Sydney - they have
a Telopeasite with subscriptions info, and some articles temporarily online.
(The Gardens Shop also sells copies, but I'm not sure that it's offered online.)

Here's where there is a PDF of that volume (pics are only low resolution,

The main Telopea site is at http://plantnet.rbgsyd.nsw.gov.au/Telopea/index.html

If unsuccessful with these links, some bibliographic info:

Telopea,Volume 9, Part 1, 2000.
A. Hay and Yuzammi. Schismatoglottiideae (Araceae) in Malesia I -
Schismatoglottis. Pp. 1-177.
J. Bogner and A. Hay. Schismatoglottiideae (Araceae) in Malesia II - Aridarum,
Bucephalandra, Phymatarum and Piptospatha. Pp. 179-222.

(Alistair - if you happen to be on aroid-L - hello! hope you're well - & hope
you don't mind me mentioning the online version of your work, rather than just
telling people to order hard copies...)

like to oder it for myself, just like having a copy so I can pull it out
whenever necessary. Thanks again.

You might give www.bookfinder.com a try. I have found several hard to find
books that way.
