Dear Aroid Tasters and Survivors,

The young shoots of wild Lasia spinosa are commonly used as a vegetable
in Burma/Myanmar. Maybe the spines of L. spinosa have been an effective
defense against herbivores, making nasty chemical defences less

Hi Peter,

It must be the time of year (one issue of Aroideana in the mails and space
in the next open) but so many opportunities for articles or colloquia
present themselves. Let me know, anyone and everyone of any of these would
be popular subjects (corm storages came up as a discussion recently) (how
about: 'edible aroids', 'what my neighbours cook and eat', 'meals I have
loved' ...), and I will try to drum up submissions for the next issue. This
is your chance to set my feet on the path of righteousness as far as the
journal is concerned - there will always be plenty of really serious
taxonomy available (and I will be delighted to receive it) but I would love
to leaven the mix a little ...

Yours in hope and expectation. Derek (editor, Aroideana, for now.)

P.S. I can rewrite if you are hesitant about submitting in final form, and
will do so, with pleasure, at your request.

Note: this is a very old post, so no reply function is available.
