The Cutting Edge

Volume XIII, Number 4, October 2006

VISITORS TO MO.  Noted at an official OTS function in St. Louis on the evening of 6 October were MO director Peter H. Raven, former OTS executive Donald E. Stone (DUKE), current OTS Costa Rica director Jorge Jiménez, and Manual contributor (and La Selva florula coordinator) Charlotte M. Taylor (MO).  Participants in the annual Fall symposium at MO included Manual Myrtaceae contributor Fred Barrie (F/MO) and Orchidaceae coordinator Robert L. Dressler (Jardín Botánico Lankester).  Our old La Selva pal Jim Beach (KANU) showed up for a databasing meeting shortly thereafter and paid a social visit.  Otherwise, it’s been uncommonly slow around here!

FREEWHEELING IN CENTRAL AMERICA.  Several Costa Rican botanists have been fortunate enough to participate in a program called "Proyecto Noruega" (presumably funded by the Norwegian government) that seeks to stimulate interactions among Central American institutions concerned with documenting and conserving biodiversity.  Newest INBio curator Armando Soto got to collect for ten days in El Salvador (21–31 August), while whiz kid Daniel Santamaría (INB) spent two weeks in Guatemala (14–29 September).  Presently, bryologist (and former INB curator) Gregorio Dauphin is off curating in Panama, together with Manual Piperaceae contributor Ricardo Callejas (HUA).  Also currently out of town (though on different funding) is INB chief and Manual co-PI Nelson Zamora, in the British isles from 21–31 October.  Nelson will first attend a global plant conservation meeting in Dublin, then adjourn to London (BM) for activities associated with the Darwin Intitiative, in which he is a key player [see The Cutting Edge 13(2) Apr. 2006].
