The Cutting Edge

Volume XXII, Number 1, January 2015

News and Notes | Leaps and Bounds | Germane Literature | Season's Pick

OUT AND ABOUT. Former INBio employee Daniel Santamaría, resident these days in Cambridge, MA, traveled to MO for a two-week stay in November, returning home on Thanksgiving day. His main agenda involved miscellaneous issues in the genera Couepia (Chrysobalanaceae), Laetia (Flacourtiaceae in Manual Vol. 5, now better as Salicaceae), and Sterculia (Sterculiaceae). Currently visiting at MO is Manual stalwart Francisco Morales, who managed to spare a week from his busy schedule at the University of Bayreuth (Germany) to work on his various family treatments for Manual Vol. 4.

THE FINAL GOODBYE. On Wednesday, 26 November, the Universidad de Costa Rica hosted a formal commemorative ceremony entitled Vida y obra de un gran botánico, celebrating the life of our recently departed friend and colleague Jorge Gómez-Laurito [see under "News and Notes" in The Cutting Edge 21(1), Jan. 2014]. Open to the public, the event featured presentations by biology professor Carlos O. Morales, emeritus professor Rodolfo Ortiz, and former professor Ricardo Soto, among others.
