Posters proclaiming Dr. Tom Croat's "VIII International Aroid Conference"
are now available. Stig Dalstrom, widely acclaimed artist and botanical
illustrator, produced the painting for this poster. In his ineffable style,
Stig offers a unique view of the Lita, Ecuador environs, a threatened
region recognized as a botanical "hot spot" for species diversity in the
Neotropics. Moss-covered trees heavily laden with epiphytic aroids and other
plants endemic to this area rise in the background. Prominent in this
realistically lush rainforest scene is Anthurium andreanum with two
magnificent red inflorescences. Other notable features include a palm tree
with an Aroid growing in the boots, while a small stream meandering through
the landscape eventually cascades into a rocky waterfall. Elegant, minute
details draw the viewer's eye deeper... flowering bromeliads nest in a tree
canopy's upper branches, and Phragmipedium hertzii perches on a rock face
overlooking the waterfall. Poster size is 18" x 24".
posters are $5 each plus appropriate postage and packaging below
