FRESH HELP AT INB. A warm welcome to Ted R. Bradley, a former professor at George Mason University, now retired and volunteering his services at INB on a full-time basis. Ted was the director of the GMUF herbarium, where he specialized on Campanulaceae (Triodanis, with just one sp. in Costa Rica). Lately he has been working on identifications of Poaceae, chipping away at a considerable backlog that has accumulated.

DRESSLER’S IN RESIDENCE. Manual Orchidaceae coordinator Robert L. Dressler (FLAS, MO) has been working as a guest researcher (with salary) at the Jardín Botánico Lankester, outside of Cartago, since mid-March. Bob and his wife, photographer Kerry Dressler, will be at Lankester for at least a full year, with the possibility of extending their stay even further. Thanks to Manual correspondent Mario Blanco (FLAS) for this news.

TSUNAMI SURVIVOR RESURFACES. Manual Marantaceae contributor Helen Kennedy (UBC) rode her wave into Costa Rica on 1 July and left for Panama on 18 July, hoping to tie up a few loose ends for her Flora mesoamericana manuscript. While in Costa Rica, she visited some of her usual haunts: Cerro Azahar, near San Ramón, in the company of Barry Hammel and Isabel Pérez; La Suiza de Turrialba and Cerro de La Muerte, with Alexánder Rojas; and the Tarrazú region, with Barry, Isabel, and Francisco Morales. We will probably still be awash in Helen’s usual infectious enthusiasm when she rolls back through the country on 5 August for a few more days, before returning to Canada.

NEW EDITOR AT LANKESTER. We have just received notification from Jorge Warner, director of the Jardín Botánico Lankester, that Franco Pupulin has resigned his position as editor of the excellent house journal Lankesteriana in order to devote more time to his research agenda. Taking up the mantle will be the equally capable Carlos O. Morales, to whom we offer congratulations and best wishes.
