Hi all,

Thanks to the AEG members who have subscribed to the Seed Collecting
Expedition to this remote and largely unexplored area of China.  As my

As a result of a couple of substantial subscribers I will be making much
broader collections than the initial proposition of just Aroids.  You are
welcome to specify if you are only interested in Arisaema/Amorphophallus or
general material.  Expedition page is at:
