For those of us like me with the retention span of a gnat, to
which particular suggestion from Dr Hay do you refer? If it is the one to get a
fire lit under the registration process by taking a very pragmatic approach to
data collection, I am all for it. One of the hurdles that I don’t know
how to cross on getting the registration started is that even the small lists
of cultivars which have been produced by the society from time to time need
each entry to be checked for place of publication (if such exists). Only those
that have appeared in print, of course, can be considered for registration
according to the International Code.
If a form like that outlined by Dr. Hay comes into being,
his entry “Name established” asking for a place of publication (if
there is not the regular annual feature in Aroideana set up as he suggests) is
of vital importance for when the ‘online register’ converts to a proper
Registration Authority list.
I feel that his suggestion is a great step forward in
getting this under discussion and finally perhaps into action.
