  The Genera of Araceae
From: "Peter Boyce" <P.Boyce at lion.rbgkew.org.uk> on 1997.01.13 at 07:30:40(114)
Dear Folks

I hope that all the folk who mailed me direct and asked to be added
to the GoA hitlist with accept my apologies if I do not reply to each
and say 'you're on the list' but will, instead, allow me through
aroid-l to say collectively 'you're on the list'

Thanks

Pete

Dear Chris:

Petra will send you the details of the book or I will include it
in a letter to you since I intended to send you back your list of
Philodendron in your collection with some comments on many of them. The
GoA is pretty expensive, going for over $125 and it may not be available
yet in your library. If they don't have it ordered yet, perhaps you can
get them to order it. Does your zoo have its own reference collection
or to you have to rely just on your public library? Are there any large
universities in the Indianapolis area? The Indiana universities that I
know are all in other places.

When Chris first posted this question, I checked this title in OCLC,
the big international online bibliographic utility, and found that
it was not listed. This will inhibit interlibrary loan borrowing.
Until someone catalogs it and posts a record on OCLC, requesting
libraries will not know which institutions possess the book, so won't
know where to send a request.
Just a librarian's 2 cents.

Hi Alberto,

No, not for a while (prob. 3 - 5 years). We have a tentative consortium
lined up and are currently pursuing funds here in Malaysia for title GoA2>

Are you referring to the book by Mayo, Bogner and Boyce? This is now somewhat out of date. I don't believe there are immediate plans for a new edition. Most of the text from the book, with updates made for the the changes that have occurred are available at www.cate-araceae.org. This is a work in progress, with additions still being made. I hope this is of use,

Anna

Dear Anna,

Aloha.

Exactly why does Cate-Araceae not post information on Brazilian endemic Philodendron? They have the most interesting species and diversity...and are so poorly known.

Aloha,

Leland

Dear aroiders,

I know someone who is looking for a copy of the book "The Genera of Araceae". He told me that the book seems to be out of print.

Does someone know where I could still find a copy ?

With best regards,

David

Dear David,

The book is out of print at Kew and has been for some years. However, the Kew publications department might consider a reprint if enough people write to them saying they want to buy a copy. So I suggest that anyone who might be interested should write a note to Gina Fullerlove, Head of Publishing at Kew, (g.fullerlove@kew.org) with a copy to John Harris, who is in charge of sales (j.harris@kew.org).

All the best

Simon Mayo

If you Google it you will see that Amazon.com does not have any right now,
but Summerfieldbooks.com does for 75 pounds. Best of luck :o) Dan

David,

This is a great website to know: Addall.com

Putting "The Genera of Araceae" into the title of the used book

search returned several sellers who have it listed.

Addall searches book listings and tells you all the places that

have a particular book.

It is not perfect though, so I always search Amazon and Alibris just

for insurance.

David,

If you go to Addall.com and look at the top bar, click

on "used books", put the title in you will come up with

4 results just on the first page.

They all sell for $20.00. Apparently there are more than

a few copies around to be had (with no problem whatever.)

I suspect that David is looking for the book, ‘The Generaof Aracea’ by S.J. Mayo, J. Bogner, P.C. Boyce, not the one referencedbelow. First published 1997, ISBN 1 900347 22 9, Printed in Belgium byContinental Printing.

Aroid books: The Genera of Araceae by S. J.Mayo, J. Bogner and P. C. BoyceKew: Royal Botanic Gardens, 1997
This book is the first completetaxonomic treatment in English of the Araceae, a large plant family of 105genera and over 3,300 species. The aroids are very diverse in the humid tropicsand include many of the world's most popular ornamental plants. Every genus isdescribed and illustrated with one or more plates of original line drawings bythe renowned botanical artist Eleanor Catherine, as well as range maps and 94colour photos. There are general chapters on many topics, including economicbotany, phylogenetic relationships, fossils, cultivation and detailed reviewsof anatomy (by J. C. French) and chemistry (by R. Hegnauer). xii + 370pp. 296 x213mm. Hard cover ISBN 1 900347 22 9. The Genera of Araceae is currentlyout of print, though a new edition is being contemplated.

David, you might want to checkbefore you buy. As I understand it Simon, Pete and Josef are workingon a revision to this incredible book.

I can guarantee every aroider needs a copy! The book comes with a CDwith the book in PDF format which makes finding information a snap. Iuse it all the time! Pete, if you have your computer on, what is thestatus?
