No. 11 - December 1996

New Coordinator for Vascular Plants

Until now, Pedro Acevedo has held the position of Coordinator of Vascular Plants for the Flora of the Greater Antilles. He recently realized that he is overcommitted to other projects and has not given the Flora of the Greater Antilles the time it deserves. Therefore, he has resigned the position. Tom Zanoni has generously agreed to take over the responsibilities. He will be contacting the vascular plant volume coordinators shortly to check on progress. I personally want to thank Pedro Acevedo for holding the position for several years during the infancy of this project. He will continue to maintain his position as a volume coordinator. Bill Buck

Newsletter goes electronic

The Flora of the Greater Antilles Newsletter is being issued in paper copy and electronic form beginning with this issue, Number 11. We will be sending the Newsletter as an attachment to a message to those subscribers with an e-mail addresses. This will mean that you can receive the newsletter as soon as we post them, without the usual postal service delivery delays. Paper copy will be mailed out to libraries and those not on e-mail. We ask that subscribers keep us informed of their e-mail addresses.

We are working with the Department of Math & Computer Science at Lehman College of the City University of New York, Bronx, to get the previous newsletters (Nos. 110) on the World Wide Web, on the New York Botanical Garden home page. As new issues come out, we will be adding them to that home page.

WWW West Indian Specimen Data

The New York Botanical Garden now has specimen data from its Type Specimen Collection of worldwide Orchidaceae on line. Also, all West Indian Orchidacae (non-types) are on line. Work has begun on the other types of West Indian taxa. So far families of gymnosperms, monocots and some of the dicot families are in the data base and some are available on line. Additionally, types of nonvascular plants are also listed. See the introduction to the data base for a list of contents, which are updated frequently. You can consult the data base by accessing http://www.nybg.org/bsci/hcol/hcol.html

Cuba on the Gopher & WWW

If you can connect on your computer to the University of Minnesota Gopher, try tracking the Cuban page. To get there, select (in sequence): Other gophers; North America; Cuba; CENIAI, La Habana, Cuba. Among items of interest are: Important Centers of Education and Science in Cuba, Some Cuban Institutions, Area Codes for Long Distance Phone Calls to Cities in Cuba, Environment, and Agriculture. The same gopher is found on the W.W.W. Search for Cuba, then look for a home page called "Republic of Cuba W.W.W." (this is a long directory of items related to Cuba). The CENIAI Cuba Gopher is the location that you want. There are also 3 e- mail address lists for Cuba as well as directions on how to contact Cuba via e-mail.

Work initiated on the Basidiomycetes of the Greater Antilles

Jean Lodge

The first expedition of mycologists on the NSF-supported project of Basidiomycetes of the Greater Antilles was in Puerto Rico in June, 1996. Over 1,000 collections were made in the Luquillo Mountains, the Sierra de Cayey, Cerro La Tiza, and the Toro Negro and Guajataca Commonwealth Forests. There were many new species and new records, as is typical for basidiomycete collections from Puerto Rico. We anticipate that at least preliminary information on these and over 3,000 previous collections of Basidiomycetes and Ascomycetes will become available on-line in November through the Luquillo Long-Term Ecological Research Gopher subdirectory: fungi.survey.dat at sunceer.upr.clu.edu [Note from M.D., this address does not seem to be still living, October 2000].

Jean Lodge travelled to the Dominican Republic in July and to Jamaica in September to set up logistics for future expeditions and meet cooperators. Some very nice stands of native Pinus occidentalis were explored in the Valle Nuevo area of the Dominican Republic, thanks to assistance received from the Fundación Moscoso Puello. This is logistically the easiest access I've found to high elevation virgin pine stands in the island. The foundation has applied to the Parks in Peril program to help preserve this area. Some field sites in Jamaica were explored in the Cockpit Country (Ramgoat Cave, Birdcave Rock) with a group of botanists learning sites of rare and endangered plants from Dr. George R. Proctor. These sites were also interesting from a mycological standpoint. Many collections of Polyporaceae were found in good condition in the herbarium of the Institute of Jamaica (IJ) in Kingston. Xylariaceous ascomycetes were also found in good condition. None of the agaric fungi was accompanied by notes on color, shape, size, odor, texture, taste, etc. and are therefore of very little use. No specimens of Corticiaceae were found.

Some very nice paintings and illustrations of Jamaican basidiomycetes are stored at the Institute of Jamaica. Many are identifiable to genus or species; unfortunately, there are no voucher specimens associated with them. Ms. Tracy Commock of the Institute of Jamaica also found the original printings for the plates of the "Fungus Flora of Venezuela" by R. W. G. Dennis, published by Kew and now out of print.

The next expedition is scheduled for November for the island of St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands, followed by an expedition to the Cordillera Central, probably Valle Nuevo, in the Dominican Republic in early January, 1997.
