Fellow aroiders,

As some of you know I have a "secret" life as taxonomist of cultivated
plants and have been developing some new ideas in this department as well as
cooperating in writing up the Cultivated Plant Code. Recently a paper was
published in the Horticultural Reviews (vol. 28) of which I am co-author.
This paper was initiated by and is first-authored by the Chief Potatoe (or
was that "potato"?) Taxonomist of the USA, dr. David Spooner of the
University of Wisconsin (where last year an Amorphophallus titanum
flowered!!!! I suspect a conspiracy here........). Together with him and two
other Dutch colleagues we wrote a review paper on plant taxonomy from a
horticultural perspective and behold, you can get this 60 pages (AUCH!!!)
paper for free on the internet when you follow the link:
