FLORA OF NORTH AMERICA NEWS
News from the Organizational Center

The revised Guide for Contributors was mailed to confirmed authors and reviewers early in February. Instructions and suggestions are presented in outline form, and we tried to address all of the questions that have arisen to date during preparation and evaluation of manuscripts.

At the end of January confirmed Volume 2 authors were sent maps, sample annotation labels (two pads tucked in the bottom of the envelope), instructions for illustrations, lists of names accepted in their families in the 25 major regional floras listed in the Guide, and other necessary reference material needed to complete their treatments. Volume 10 confirmed authors were sent the same packet of materials in late February.

If we missed you, or if your packet was incomplete, please let us know so that we can mail you the appropriate materials.

Letters of invitation were sent in early March to potential authors for smaller families in Volumes 4-8. Author assignments will again be discussed at the June editorial committee meeting. Please don't be shy about letting any one of the editors know about your interests if you would like to be considered for writing or reviewing a treatment.

We now have a FAX machine at FNA Central. If you need to send us something quickly, fax it to (314) 577-9558.

Staff changes

Laurie Klingensmith has moved to St. Louis from Las Cruces and is drawing illustrations for FNA from specimens as authors send information. Laurie is taking special care with maintaining records on the specimens used, so that the illustrations are properly vouchered. She is also experimenting with plate formats so that comparative details of many taxa can be shown on one plate.

Helen Dates has been promoted to Editorial Technician and continues her detailed work on the non-botanical editing of the manuscripts (and anything else the rest of us need her skills for). It's like having our own personal English teacher here at FNA Central.

Editorial Committee News

The Editorial Committee will hold its next meeting at University of Alberta, Edmonton, on June 2 and 3, 1990.

James E. Eckenwalder of the University of Toronto has agreed to edit Cupressaceae and Taxodiaceae for FNA. As you all know, John Thieret has been working hard on gymnosperm treatments for many months now. With Jim's help we will have a much better chance of meeting our revised deadline of April 30 for having manuscript to Oxford University Press.

Another item of good news is that Ivan Valdespina, a graduate student working with John Mickel at New York Botanical Garden, has agreed to write Selaginellaceae.

ONGOING FLORISTIC PROJECTS

The manuscript of the second edition of Flora Europaea volume 1 was delivered to Cambridge University Press in June of 1989. The revision and editing was done by John Akeroyd at the University of Reading under a grant from the Linnean Society's Flora Europaea Trust Fund. Volume 1 includes Pteridophytes, Gymnosperms, and Salicaceae to Platanaceae. Since publication of the first edition of volume 1, over 200 new species and 140 new subspecies have been described, 25 species have been discovered as new to the area, and 34 new adventives have been found from families in that volume. The Flora Europaea Editorial Committee now consists of J. R. Akeroyd, F. A. Bisby, N. A. Burges (Chairman), A. O. Chater, J. R. Edmondson (Secretary), V. H. Heywood, S. L. Jury, D. M. Moore, and S. M. Walters. The committee will continue with the revision of further volumes of the Flora and, if sufficient funding is secured, the system of regional advisers will be reactivated. The new address for the Flora Europaea Secretariat is: Liverpool Museum, William Brown St., Liverpool L3 8EN. Tel. 051 207 0001 ext. 209.--summarized from The Linnean 6(1): 14, 1990.

NEWS AND NOTES

The city of Austin has donated a 60-acre botanical garden to the Texas Botanical Garden Society. The garden will be directed by Dr. E. Arthur Bell, who for seven years has been the director of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. The technical director of the new garden is Dr. Marshall Johnston.

Arizona State University has announced the establishment of a Department of Botany, which will offer B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. Degrees in Botany and participate in B.S. and M.NH.S. Degrees jointly with the Departments of Microbiology and Zoology. Also, a joint program offering M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Molecular and Cellular Biology is being planned. The faculty invites interested students to contact them personally for information. In addition to newly expanded, modern laboratory facilities, the department has field access to desert, chaparral, and mountain communities through the Sierra Ancha Research station near Lake Roosevelt. Cooperative research with two USDA laboratories located three miles from campus is encouraged. The U.S. Forest Service also has a division of the Rocky Mountain Range and Experiment Station on campus and additional facilities are available at the Desert Botanical Garden located two miles from campus.

The National Museum of Natural Sciences of Canada has a new mailing address: P. O. Box 3443, Station "D", Ottawa, Canada, K1P 6P4. The herbarium is still at the same street address but the above should be used as its mailing address.

The Carnegie Museum of Natural History is presently conducting an inventory reduction sale of all available back issues of its scientific publications. These include Annals of Carnegie Museum, Bulletin of Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Memoirs, and Special Publications of Carnegie Museum of Natural History. These publication series include articles on botany as well as anthropology, entomology, herpetology, mammalogy, ornithology, paleontology, and other natural history disciplines. Request copies of the appropriate lists, stating your interests, from: Office of Scientific Publications, The Carnegie Museum of Natural History, 4400 Forbes Ave., Pittsburgh, PA 15213-4080.

Agriculture Canada has, for the past 20 years, been developing a permanent collection of taxonomically significant reprints on vascular plants, particularly those concerned with classification rather than theoretical topics. They wish to remind colleagues of their continued interest in receiving such reprints. Please send to Mr. F. J. Beales, Curator, Vascular Plant Reprint Collection, Biosystematics Research Centre, William Saunders Building - Agriculture Canada, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada K1A 0C6.

The Davies Herbarium (DHL), University of Louisville, has resumed normal operation after a two year hiatus. The herbarium has moved to a new facility and now has ample space in which to carry out a full range of herbarium functions. A small endowment has been obtained, and this provides adequate funding for general operating expenses. The herbarium contains approximately 35,000 specimens of vascular plants of Kentucky and the southeastern United States. Voucher specimens from systematic studies of Malacothrix (Asteraceae: Lactuceae) are also housed at DHL. Inquiries concerning loan of specimens or visits to the facility should be addressed to W. S. Davis, Curator, Department of Biology, University of Louisville, Louisville KY 40292. 502/588-6771.

Loy R. Phillippe (Ph.D. 1978, University of Tennessee, Knoxville) is now Collections Manager of the vascular plant (170,000+ specimens) and fungi (50,000+ specimens) herbaria at the Illinois Natural History Survey, Champaign, Illinois. The vascular plant collection is primarily from Illinois. The fungi collection is well represented from throughout the United States and Canada with major emphasis on plant pathogenic fungi of the Midwest. The fungi collection also contains some fungi from the neotropics. Colleagues are encouraged to request loan material for appropriate research projects. --Loy R. Phillippe

John B. Nelson (Ph.D. 1982, Florida State University) is now Curator of the Andrew Charles Moore Herbarium of the University of South Carolina. Currently, USCH has exceeded 50,000 accessioned specimens, mostly vascular plants of South Carolina and the southeastern U.S.A., and also including a large collection of mosses. Colleagues are encouraged to request loan material for appropriate research projects, and we anticipate accelerating our exchange program in the coming years.--John B. Nelson

Patricia Barlow at University of New Mexico is making good progress with gathering botanists' BITNET addresses. For a list write her at Department of Biology, University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM 87131, (PBARLOW@UNMB). Timothy K. Lowrey is now settling in at University of New Mexico Department of Biology.

CONSERVATION NEWS: Two Lilies are Endangered

Lemon lily, Lilium parryi, is an attractive, intriguing, and commercially valuable member of Arizona's flora. Lemon lily is a showy herbaceous perennial that can reach a height of 40 inches. The leaves are lance-shaped and arranged in whorls or alternately along the stem. The flowers look just like an Easter lily flower, except that Lilium parryi flowers are lemon yellow and have red spots in the throat. In addition to its southeastern Arizona locations, lemon lily also occurs in the mountains of southern California.

A variety of threats faces this species. Because the plants are so attractive, commercial collectors take the plants and seed for artificial propagation. Collection not only reduces the already small population sizes but also disturbs the fragile habitat. Trampling by visitors interested in seeing this species in the wild could also be a problem. In the past, catastrophic flash flooding has nearly eliminated two populations. Some biologists believe that wildfires contribute to the severity of the flooding. Perhaps some controlled burns will be necessary to reduce the potential effects of fires. Diversion of water for human uses away from the habitat and placer mining may cause the loss of populations. The Coronado National Forest, the Nature Conservancy, and the Fish and Wildlife Service are working cooperatively to develop a management plan for this species. --from an article by Sue Rutman, in The Plant Press, Vol.13 No.3, 1989

If there is a fate worse than death, it may have befallen a population of western lily (Lilium occidentale). Standing 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 feet tall and bearing nodding crimson to deep-red flowers with greenish centers and maroon spots, western lily is one of the Pacific Northwest's most beautiful flowers. One of 42 historically known populations of this rare and elegant species now lies entombed under the agent of its extinction, a public restroom. The restroom serves visitors to an Oregon state park's main attraction, a botanical garden.

Although few populations of western lily have met such an ignominious demise, many have disappeared or are in decline as a result of increasing human disturbance of their coastal bogland habitats. Of the species' historically known populations--all situated in extreme northwest California or extreme southwest Oregon--at least nine are extinct, at least seven are declining, and at least eight face imminent extinction, according to a January 1989 report by Stewart T. Schultz of the University of British Columbia. --from an article by Russell D. Stafford, in Plant Conservation, Vol.4 No.4, 1989.

RECENT PUBLICATIONS

CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS has pamphlets available entitled "New and Recent Books in Plant Science and Agriculture." One of the many interesting books they list is Americans and Their Forests, A Historical Geography, by Michael Williams, University of Oxford. In this magisterial and unprecedented book, Michael Williams tells us the meaning of the forest in American history and culture; he describes and analyzes the clearing and use of the forest from pre-European times to the present, and he traces the subsequent regrowth of the forest since the middle of the twentieth century. (excerpted from the pamphlet) 1988, 736 pp., 33247-8, hardcover, List: $49.50, Discount: $39.60.

Herbs, Spices, and Medicinal Plants: Recent Advances in Botany, Horticulture, and Pharmacology Volume 4 Edited by Lyle E. Craker and James E. Simon, is available from Oryx Press in Phoenix, Arizona (1-800-457-ORYX). Topics include: Botanical Nomenclature of Medicinal Plants; Excerpts of the Chinese Pharmacopoeia; and Phytogeographic and Botanical Considerations of Medicinal Plants in Eastern Asia and Eastern North America. November 1989, 272 pages, 6 x 9, clothbound, illustrated, ISBN 0-89774-363-6, $69.50

Ferns and Fern Allies of Canada, by William J. Cody and Donald M. Britton. Canadian Government Publishing Centre, Ottawa, Canada K1A 0S9, paperbound. English version: ISBN 0-660-13102-1, 430 pp.; French version: ISBN 0-660-92527-3, 452 pp. Either available in Canada for $38.50 + $2.75 (Canadian), elsewhere for $46.20 + $2.75 (U.S.). This marvelous new book, available in identical French and English versions, is a must for the libraries of all botanists interested in North American pteridophytes. Beyond being the only detailed account of the species of ferns and fern allies growing in Canada, the book provides a summary of the systematic research on each group, with an extensive bibliography. At the same time a lengthy, comprehensive introduction explains to the amateur or neophyte not only the standard "how to use this book," but also the basics of biosystematics and how information from a variety of sources affects the systematics and nomenclature of taxa. The keys and descriptions are simple and clear and the glossary, distribution maps, and numerous drawings should prove a great help to users. For those seeking more detailed knowledge not found in most floras, the often lengthy discussions of alternative taxonomic interpretations, hybridization, and the compilation of cytological information will prove invaluable.

Unfortunately, the manuscript was completed in 1983. This delay in publication necessitated a second, explanatory introduction to be added, which includes examples of changes in our knowledge of Canadian pteridophytes not in the main portion of the text. A second, lengthy bibliography of references published since 1983, not referenced in the text, supplements the already extensive literature cited. Although for most genera the refinements in our understanding of Canadian ferns during the past seven years will not detract from the usefulness of the treatments, in a few groups, such as Botrychium, the existing text requires extensive revision. However, in spite of the numerous studies involving taxa growing in Canada that have appeared of late, it is amazing how well the text has already withstood the test of time, during the years prior to publication. This excellent book is clearly more monographic in nature than most floristic works and the authors should be congratulated on their insightfulness and achievement. --reviewed by G. Yatskievych (Missouri Botanical Garden).

UPCOMING MEETINGS

A special Herbarium Curators' Meeting will be held on Wednesday afternoon, August 8, 1990, during the annual meeting of the American Institute of Biological Sciences (AIBS) in Richmond, Virginia. This full afternoon session's topic will be Herbarium Acquisitions and Exchange Policies: Where are we going? Curators of collections from a variety of taxa, animals and vascular and nonvascular plants, will be asked to describe the policies and traditions followed in their own fields, and then the group will discuss institutional and community strategies for building research and archival collections that will meet the needs of those using them in the future. New opportunities for storing, using, and sharing data (e.g., computerization) and the old constraints of limited funding, space, and personnel will be discussed in an effort to reach, or develop a strategy for reaching, a community-wide consensus on policies and needs for this area of herbarium management. Such a consensus will then help funding agencies in setting priorities for distribution of funds. This meeting is for those using herbarium collections as well as for those managing them, and anyone interested is welcome to attend.

Designs for a Global Plant Species Information System is an international symposium to be held at the European Cultural Center of Delphi, Greece, on 12-16 October 1990, by the IUBS Commission for Taxonomic Databases (formerly Taxonomic Databases Working Group--TDWG), the Linnean Society, and the European Cultural Center of Delphi, and sponsored by the Commission of the European Communities and CODATA. The goal of this symposium is to develop a range of designs for a global species diversity information system for plants that will enable scientists in all countries to access information on the names, classification, and geographical distribution of all the world's plants. Sessions will be: (1) The demand for a global plant species information system; (2) Botanical decision making and data collection strategies; (3) Data structures and logical designs; (4) System configuration - machines and communications; and (5) Management, ownership, and funding. Each session will involve formal presentations as well as organized group discussions. There will also be demonstrations and poster sessions.

Cumulative Bibliography and Index

C# = Family number following A. Cronquist (1981) An Integrated System of Classification of Flowering Plants. New York. We simply numbered all families sequentially listed on pp. xiii to xviii. Family circumscription and placement may change in the future as volumes based on new data are prepared.

The dates given are when final reviewed and edited manuscript is to be given to Oxford University Press according to our contract. Manuscripts are due from authors no later than one year before that date to allow time for review, revision, and editing of treatments received and for preparation of manuscripts by staff for treatments not received.
