  Aroideana call for papers
From: "Derek Burch" <derek at horticulturist.com> on 2010.11.10 at 13:46:20(21645)

With outside gardening slowing down and
only the mild distractions of the holidays looming, it is time to contact me
with ideas and/or outlines for articles for the next Aroideana. I have some
good papers promised with serious taxonomic subject matter and now need more
that will be of value to members whose interests are more practical. Don’s
email on photographing plants for id purposes could well be expanded – I could
see it taking in the consideration of what features particularly need to be
photographed in any one genus to make the id possible. There have been other
mentions of this in recent postings: a nice collaborative paper on this would
be of great value. More hands-on topics? Of course, and again a collaboration
by growers in different parts of the world on a topic might provide something
of general interest and real value. Please remember that I can assist with the
writing and editing, and can coordinate efforts, but this is all takes time,
and the deadline is only a month and a half away. What about a regional review
of people and gardens to visit when travelling through an area? I’m
not going to write these things, but will be glad to consider them or any
others for publication.

So, all the people who say that the
journal needs to be of more general interest need to get stuff to me for
consideration. I can’t print what I don’t have.

Regards, Derek
