JLMS collections
« on: January 29, 2007, 11:43:58 AM »
Today the AGS bulletin arrived and I was very surprised to find my name in an article about Dionysia gaubae.
I dont know what to think about this kind of information, because I have never been in Iran and I never collected seeds of Dionysias or any other plant mentioned in the Red Data Book. This wrong information is much more painful because  elsewhere John Richards uses the genus Dionysia as an example of over-collecting in Iran.
The initials JLMS have nothing to do with my name. The members of the JLMS expedition were  J, L, M and S

 I see what you mention in the Plant Awards section of the AGS bulletin, Josef. I am unsure as to whether the item in question was written by Brian Burrow, who showed the award plant, or Robert Rolfe, who complies the Plant Award reports but I would suggest that you contact both the editor, Chris Grey-Wilson and Robert Rolfe to explain your unease at this mistake.

There's at least one other mistake as well, though probably Carl Denton's rather than the Editor's. Carl mentions the town of Georgina in NZ, near where he saw the stunning yellow Trillium chloropetalum `Val Mulvihill.' There is no such town. It is Geraldine.

A jolly good Bulletin all the same.

It is understandable that Josef would be annoyed. No doubt this was not deliberate but simply an editing slip. However, I must comment that I thought the proofreading in this issue of the journal had been somewhat slipshod with poor sytax and punctuation allowed through.

I realise that such matters do not herald the end of the world as we know it but they do take from my enjoyment of the journal.

Mine too Paddy, a disadvantage of being brought up by parents with perfect grammer and spelling. I was told recently that I was becoming very like my late mother. It was NOT meant as a compliment!
