  [Aroid-l] Alocasia zebrina reticulata
From: botanist at malesiana.com (Peter Boyce) on 2008.07.10 at 08:32:35(18130)
Hi Leland,

I was more thinking along the lines that the numerous folks who grow
Alocasia zebrina might pitch in with observations on the different
menifestation that this species takes in cultivation.

The Flora of the Philippines project is stll active but is suffering from
the same problem besetting several similar projects in Asia, that of a
dearth of botanists tackling alpha-taxonomy and the almost universal problem
that so few students are coming into field-work based botany once they leave
university such that as the few remaining active
field-taxonomists/systematits become fewer still there are a
disproportionately small number of young bloods entering the career.
