THE DOG DAYS OF SUMMER. This year's OTS course on "Sistemática de Plantas Tropicales," coordinated by Robbin Moran (NY) and Benjamin van Ee (BHSC), just ended a few days ago (8 June–11 July). INBio's Daniel Santamaría was an enthusiastic participant, apparently a first for this course series, otherwise restricted to enrolled graduate students. The course visited the INB herbarium on two occasions.

OBITUARY. We have just learned of the death, on 11 July, of Paul A. Fryxell, the leading authority on New World Malvaceae and author of the very fine Manual Malvaceae treatment. A native of Moline, IL, Paul obtained his Ph.D. at Iowa State University and worked for many as a research scientist with the United States Department of Agriculture (most recently at Texas A & M University). He retired in 1994 and later moved to Claremont, CA, where he passed away at the age of 84.
