  [aroid-l] Introduction
From: Emily.Yates at mobot.org on 2004.04.19 at 19:15:17(11417)
Hi aroid-L subscribers...

I just wanted to introduce myself. I am a relatively new subscriber to
Aroid-L, and a new face beginning in aroid research. My name is Emily Yates
and my interest in plant taxonomy, ecology and biogeography in general, and
Araceae, in particular, stems from my new position as Tom Croat's research
assistant at Missouri Botanical Gardens in St. Louis, MO. I am originally
from southern Illinois, and received my B.S. in biology from Drake
University in Des Moines, Iowa, and my M.S. in geography from SIU
Carbondale, IL, where I studied recruitment of non-native invasive plants
into fragmented forests in southern Illinois. I continue to be very
interested in invasive plants, especially invasive aroids, as well as
biogeography, fieldwork, travel, and plant collecting, all of which I hope
to submerse myself in here at Missouri Botanical Garden. I enjoy being
given the chance to be part of such a community of people interested this
fascinating group of plants, to work with Tom to bring to completion many
aroid research projects, and to initiate others on my own. I am looking
forward to interacting with all of you at some point and hope to contribute
to the discussion of Araceae on Aroid-L and to provide assistance to you
from our wealth of resources here at the Missouri Botanical Garden.
