  [Aroid-l] Steve's pages ARE science
From: lbmkjm at yahoo.com (brian lee) on 2008.04.22 at 17:50:37(17440)
Dear Julius, Ted, Steve, et. al.,


Science is a process. Naming plants is a process that
is on-going. Steve is an easily accessible source for
information on a selected group of plants that he
grows and has interest in. That it is available in
such a format at all, is a blessing. It is not easy
for many people to access this information. That
Steve and his contributors are willing to volunteer
their time and knowledge is refreshing.

Graff and his publications, Exotica and Tropica,
remind me of Steve and his website. Graff was
obviously passionate to assemble an encyclopedia of
plants for horticulture with the best information and
photos he could for the time. If he knew what we know
today, there would not be such a confusion of names.
Julius is correct in pointing out that some people
will refuse to learn and continue to believe that the
world is flat. Heaven help them. Steve, in his
website is continuing in the spirit of Graff, with
better information. In the future, we will obtain
even better information, and so goes the science of
the process.
