  A trip to MoBot

Last Friday, Cathy and I had a chance to visit the Missouri Botanical
Garden in St. Louis again. It's always a pleasure to see the gardens, look
around in the aroid greenhouse, and visit Tom Croat and Petra Malesevich,
who are wonderful hosts. This trip was at Tom's invitation for a special
treat, a chance to meet Peter and Jill (Gill?) Boyce before they traveled
to Miami for the fall IAS meeting, where Peter will speak.

We arrived early Friday afternoon, and after a trip or two across the
gardens in pursuit, caught up with Tom and Peter in Tom's office. There we
had a chance to look at "Genera of Araceae", and I heartily second Dewey's
praise. The pictures are excellent and many are of seldom-pictured
species, the format is clear and logical, and I found it hard not to stop
and browse the text.
