UPCOMING SYMPOSIUM. ANAI has just announced a symposium, planned for 9–11 July, 2019, entitled "The Little Studied Southern Caribbean Region of Costa Rica: Biodiversity, Environmental Status, Protection and Challenges." The event, to take place at the main campus of the Universidad de Costa Rica, "seeks to bolster research efforts in the region, but also to connect the broader community and facilitate dialogue between researchers, businesses, community leaders, and others, including those whose livelihoods depend on the resources and biological richness of this area." We have no information on registration as yet, but will pass that along as it becomes available.

VISITANTE. It was our pleasure at MO to host Universidad de Costa Rica graduate student Marco Vinicio Cedeño Fonseca, who just left after spending about six weeks on the premises courtesy of an Alwyn H. Gentry Fellowship. We are happy to report that Marco made great strides working on the difficult genus Monstera (Araceae), with occasional assistance from family overlord Thomas B. Croat and Manual co-PI Mike Grayum. Great things are on the horizon!

MAJOR NEW ON-LINE RESOURCE. A fifth-volume, on-line only(!) "publication" entitled Frutos, semillas y plántulas de Costa Rica has just been announced and posted at the following site:

http://www.euna.una.ac.cr/index.php/EUNA/catalog/book/247

We would briefly describe the format, but our readers can just as easily check that out for themselves. As regards the content, the title pretty much speaks for itself. Six authors are credited for this production, but only the first, Gustavo Vargas Rojas, is known to us. This contribution should serve an important function, because seeds and seedlings (in particular) have been poorly documented. We expect to put this to good use ourselves—when and if a hard-copy version becomes available!
