Mark D. Moffler Qualitative observations on tropical aroid cold tolerance (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: As winter approaches each year, we all become concerned about protecting our tropical plants, especially those which are the most susceptible to cold damage. The fall of 1978 was mild in Tampa, with temperatures seldom reaching below 100C (500F). The mild fall gave many of us a false sense of security and steps for cold protection were put off until "tomorrow". It wa~ this unfortunate procrastination that lead to a premature study of cold tolerance in aroids. My initial idea was to test several landscape and porch plants for cold susceptibility, but unfortunately, I unintentionally tested 46 different aroids.
B. Frank Brown Aglaonema: New discoveries (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: This past March, Dr. Gutierrez learned of a newly discovered stand of Agiaonema in the wilds of the province of Rizal, on the island of Luzon. His information came from Mr. Zach Sarian, a Filipino member of the Aroid Society. Directions as to the precise location where the plants were discovered were scanty, but, after gleaning as much information as possible, we set out in quest of their habitat.

Dan H. Nicholson Translation of Engler's classification of Araceae with updating (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: When Hooker (1883) was preparing the treatment of Araceae (Aroideae) for the monumental 'Genera Plantarum,' he basically followed the Schottian system, incorporating Engler's (1879) reduction in the number of genera. The first system was "popularized" by Hutchinson (1959) who, with a reversal of the sequence (bisexual genera first), published essentially an English translation of Hooker's latin. Engler (1905-1920), in his monumental 'Das Pflanzenreich', produced his final treatment of the family, including all then known species in nine volumes. This work remains the standard reference for the family as a whole.
R. J. Henny Breeding guidelines in the genus Aglaonema
This article available FREE to IAS Members with a PERSONAL login. LOGIN, REGISTER or JOIN
 ABSTRACT: The purpose of this report is to describe the techniques of Aglaonema hybridization at ARCApopka and hopefully encourage other people to attempt crosses on their own. A list of aglaonemas useful for breeding is also included (Table 1).
R. J. Henny Stimulation of flowering in Aglaonema with gibberellic acid (GA3)
This article available FREE to IAS Members with a PERSONAL login. LOGIN, REGISTER or JOIN
 ABSTRACT: Recent discoveries of new types of Aglaonema with unusual foliar variegation patterns and petiole colorations have increased the breeding potential for this genus. Potential for development of exciting new hybrids has never been greater. For such promise to be realized, however, it is necessary to be able to induce simultaneous flowering of different Aglaonema species and cultivars.

F. D. Ghani Ornamental and edible aroids of peninsular Malaysia (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: Most aroids are widely distributed in the tropics and subtropics with a few species in temperate regions. The majority occur in the countries of South East Asia, South and Central America, Africa and the West Indies. The family has a total of 110 genera and ca. 2500 species (Croat, 1979), 92% of which are in South East Asia and Central and South America. In Malaysia alone there are 23 native genera and about 120 species (Henderson, 1954).
R. J. Henny, W. C. Fooshee Flowering of Aglaonema with gibberellic acid (GA3) A follow up report
This article available FREE to IAS Members with a PERSONAL login. LOGIN, REGISTER or JOIN
 ABSTRACT: As a routine part of our foliage breeding program, we treated several plants with 250 ppm GA3 (our normal rate) on November 10, 1982. The results were phenomenal! Treated plants had open flowers in mid-April and continued to produce new blossoms into July_ Some plants, growing in 8-inch pots with 3-4 stems produced upwards of 50 inflorescences during this t ime (Figures 1 [, 2). As in previous studies, flowers were normal in appearance and fertile. In addition, unrelated species and cultivars again flowered simultaneously enabling cross pollination attempts.
R. J. Henny Aglaonema Breeding: Transmission of foliar variegation from three species to their hybrids
This article available FREE to IAS Members with a PERSONAL login. LOGIN, REGISTER or JOIN
 ABSTRACT: Aglaonema possess several unique patterns of foliar variegation which makes them ideal for breeding and genetic studies. This article presents information concerning inheritance of foliar variegation from three Aglaonema species. Aglaonema commutatum Schott var. picturatum 'Treubii,' A. crispum (Hort. Pitcher & Manda) Nicols. 'Chartreuse Halo'; and A. nitidum (Jack) Kunth 'Curtisii' were thecultivars used in this study.
Dr. R. Frank Brown The new aglaonemas of Thailand (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: In 1979, after returning to Manila from an exhaustive search on the island of Palawan, I visited the garden of Dr. Romeo Gutierrez, president of the Philippine Horticultural Society. Dr. Gutierrez maintains one of the world's leading collections of Aglaonemas, and on this occasion, he proudly displayed a newly discovered species from Thailand. It was, to put it mildly, the most beautiful Aglaonema I had ever seen. I Although he generously cut it and gave me the top, my collector's instinct had become so aroused, that I cancelled my planned search on the Philippine island of Samar, and instead, flew to Bangkok.
Josef Bogner Morphological variation in aroids (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: The Araceae or aroid., are a large family of about 2400 species, grouped in 107 genera and these again in nine subfamilies. The aroids are mainly a tropical family and are distributed world-wide. They show great variation in their morphological characters, which will be described in this paper along with some other data.

R. J. Henny Aglaonema Breeding (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: Historically, the origin of Aglaonema cultivars has depended upon introduction of species collected in the wild or selection of mutations of commonly grown species observed by collectors or nurserymen. Breeding· has played a small role in new cultivar development, although four important commercial cultivars have resulted from hybridization.
Thomas B. Croat Ecology and life forms of Araceae (Buy Back Issue)
 ABSTRACT: The most interesting aspect of the family's ecology is the diversity of adaptive life forms. These range from submerged to free-floating, and emergent aquatics to terrestrial plants and to epilithic or epiphytic forms which may be true epiphytes or hemiepiphytic (growing on trees but rooted in soil). Hemiepiphytism is diverse itself, with some species beginning their lives as terrestrial seedlings, then growing skototropically (toward darkness) until they arrive at the nearest suitable tree ( usually a relatively large one which casts a darker shadow) where a physiological change takes place allowing them to grow toward light (Strong & Ray, 1975). They grow as appressed epiphytes on trees or as vines in the canopy. Others begin their lives as true epiphytes, some reconverting to hemiepiphytes by producing long, dangling roots contacting the forest floor below.

 ABSTRACT: Sexual Diversity, Breeding Techniques, and Hybridization in Aglaonema - Lack of information concerning chromosome number, presence of dichogamy and apomixis (Henny, 1989a) and erratic flowering habit have hampered breeding programs.
Thomas B. Croat History and current status of systemic research with Araceae (Buy Back Issue)
 ABSTRACT: This paper will cover all systematic and floristic work that deals with Araceae which is known to me. It will not, in general, deal with agronomic papers on Araceae such as the rich literature on taro and its cultivation, nor will it deal with smaller papers of a technical nature or those dealing with pollination biology. It will include review papers on technical subjects and all works, regardless of their nature, of current aroid researchers. It is hoped that other reviews will be forthcoming which will cover separately the technical papers dealing with anatomy, cytology, physiology, palenology, and other similar areas and that still another review will be published on the subject of pollination biology of Araceae and the rich literature dealing with thermogenesis.
Josef Bogner The genus Bognera Mayo and Nicolson (Araceae) (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: The genus Bognera Mayo & Nicolson with its single species Bognera recondita (Madison) Mayo & Nicolson, is described and illustrated and its relationships are discussed in detail. Discussions of its history, discovery, distribution, ecology, pollination, etymology and cultivation are given. The genus Bognera is characterized by its creeping rhizome shoot architecture with two cataphylls preceding each foliage leaf, the last one partly enveloping the petiole (a character unique in the family), the essentially parallel-pinnate venation type (philodendroid) but with third order veins in a clearly reticulate pattern, the unconstricted spathe, the stamens of each male flower connate into a synandrium, the female flowers lacking staminodes, the unilocular ovary with a single anatropous ovule on a basal placenta and the inaperturate pollen grains with smooth (psilate) exine.
