Marc Gibernau has graciously made available to us scans on many of the works of Adolf Engler ( 1844-1930 ) , a prolific writer on Aroid taxonomy and morphology. This comprises nearly 250MB of PDF files, which have been cleaned, OCR'ed and uploaded to the members area on aroid.org. Included are some very nice line drawings scattered throughout, as well as the original descriptions of many species.
I would encourage all members to log in to aroid.org today and check these files out - even if you are not so good with Latin and German, the books are truly interesting just for the pictures and familiar plant names.
Not a member of the IAS? Join us today in supporting aroid horticulture, education and research at

All the best,
