Hi Hermine

At the risk of boring a large percentage of aroid-l subscribers, since this
isn't a forum to discuss evolutionary systematics (phylogenetics), I'm all
in favour of making systematic studies to better understand plant
relationships based on their evolutionary lineages and strongly advocate
this type of study rather then the former method of 'it looks similar thus
it must be related' approach to sysematics; what worries me is the number of
students veering directly to the lab. to do their work while,
conservatively, a third of all living things have yet to receive a
scientific name.
