Peat Mosses of th
e Southeastern United States. Vol. 102. Lewis E. Anderson et al. 2009. ISBN: 978-0-89327-505-1.  Hardcover. $42.00
Sphagnum, wid
ely known as peat moss, has a wide use in agriculture, horticulture, and floriculture. Threre are few taxonomic treatments of Sphagnum in North America, yet it is a fascinating genus whose species comprise an integral part of nearly all fresh-water wetlands. It is our hope that this treatise will aid those who venture into studying peat moss.

Memoirs of the New York Botanical Garden 101
Seed Dispersal by Bats in the Neotropics. Vol. 101.
Tatyana Lobova et al. 2009.  ISBN: 978-0-89327-501-3. 492 pp.
Hardcover. $70.00
As agents of seed dispersal and pollination, bats play an important part in maintaining plant diversity in the New World tropics.
Seed Dispersal by Bats in the Neotropics summarizes the authors’ intensive field studies of this phenomenon. For more than five years, their survey of bat–plant interactions took the authors to some of the most pristine (“old-growth”) rain forests inthe world as well as those that have been disturbed (“secondary forests”), all within central French Guiana. On one level this book serves as a guide for identifying the seeds of bat-dispersed plants; on another level it summarizes the state of our knowledge of those plants and the diets and behaviors of fruit-eating bats. This book is an excellent reference for anyone interested in conservation, plant–animal interactions, systematics, or tropical forests.

Memoirs of the New York Botanical Garden 100
The Atlantic Coastal Forest of Northeastern Brazil. Vol. 100.
Thomas, Wm. Wayt (ed.).  2008. ISBN: 978-0-89327-498-6. 586 pp. Hardcover. $75.00 
The Atlantic Coastal Forest of Brazil is one of the world's biodiversity hotspots, highly threatened areas rich in species found nowhere else. The long, narrow strip of forest spans over 23 degrees of latitutde and over 4000 km along the coast of Brazilzthe equivalent of Nova Scotia to Cuba. As a result, it comprises many different kinds of forest, each with its own flora and conservation problems. Compared to the forests farther south, the northeastern coastal forests are more divers, more endangered, and less understood. This volume unites information on the vegetation and flora of the forests of northeastern and eastern Brazil in 18 chapters written by 33 scientists.
While most of the papers address the forests of a specific area, the authors place their conclusions in the context of the entire region. The first paper surveys and describes the forest vegetation types found in northeastern Brazil. Eleven papers describe specific forest sites, from the tabuleiro forest on Tertiary sediments to the diverse forest of southern Bahia and the gallery forests of high-elevation meadows. Two are survey papers, one of the moist mountain-top forests of Pernambuco and Paraba and the other of the forests of the Linhares Reserve in Esprito Santo. Four papers describe the human impact on coastal forest and its plants: one through satellite imagery of land use, one through studies of regeneration in secondary forests, one describing an urban forest, and one compiling the common names of forest plants in southern Bahia.

Liverworts of New England: A Guide for the Amateur Naturalist. Vol. 99.
Lincoln, M. 2008.  ISBN 978-0-89327-478-8. 162 pp. Hardcover. $45.00
Liverworts of New England is volume 99 of the Memoirs of The New York Botanical Garden series. This is a book for those who are just beginning to look at these fascinating plants as well as for those who didn’t even know these plants existed. As the author demonstrates, the complexity, diversity, and beauty of liverworts make them absorbing objects of study and research.
In explanations that do not intimidate or oversimplify, the author describes the nearly 200 species in 62 genera found in diverse habitats throughout the six New England states. Features that can be seen with a hand lens are emphasized, sop that curious naturalists will not need a compound microscope. Color photographs, line drawings, distribution maps, and simple keys assist in the identification of common species, and a helpful glossary of terms is also included.

A Revision of the Genus Minthostachys (Labiatae).  Vol. 98.
Schmidt-Lebuhn, A. 2008. ISBN 978-0-89327-499-3.  76 pp. Hardcover. $39.00
This title is volume 98 of Memoirs of The New York Botanical Garden. Minthostachys (Benth.) Spach (Labiatae) is a genus of aromatic, scandent shrubs distributed along the Andes from Venezuela to Argentina. Members of the genus are of considerable interest as medicinal plants and a source of ethereal oils, and are used by the local population much like plants of the superficially similar genus Mentha L. in Europe. The aim of the present study was to provide a modern taxonomic treatment of Minthostachys, to accompany molecular studies published elsewhere (Schmidt-Lebuhn, 2007; Schimdt-Lebuhn, 2008).

Flora Neotropica
Volume 103. Foliicolous Lichenized Fungi
, Lücking, R. 2008. ISBN 978-0-89327-491-7. 866 pp. Hardcover. $125.00
Foliicolous Lichenized Fungi, published in October 2008, is unique in treating an ecologically defined group and representing a wide range of systematic lineages. The book treats an enigmatic group of organisms: lichens that grow on living leaves of vascular plants in tropical rain forests of the New World. It covers more than 600 species in over 70 genera, 23 families, and eight orders, or about 70 percent of all lichenized fungi species occurring worldwide. Leaf-dwelling lichens are unusual in that they are small and have very short life-cycles. Representatives can be found in almost all major lineages of lichenized fungi. Up to 50 species can be found on a single leaf the size of a hand, and up to 300 species within a hectare of tropical rain forest. No other lichen group exhibits such extraordinary diversity. The book is an excellent introduction to the study of tropical lichens in general. More than 600 species are fully illustrated with habitat photographs and line drawings. The work features natural keys to families and artificial keys not only to genera and species but also to usually sterile or anamorphic taxa. It allows identification of a wide range of samples from different perspectives and provides an understanding of the phylogenetic relationships among foliicolous lichens. This is a work that will stimulate lichen research in the tropics for many years to come. All taxa are keyed out in the book and each species is treated in detail, including photographic
illustrations and line drawings. The book features a lengthy introductory chapter covering the history of foliicolous lichen research, morphology and anatomy, taxonomy and systematics, evolution and phylogeny, ecology, and biogeography, interactions with other organisms, and potential applications of these tiny organisms, such as their vital role as bioindicators.

This remarkable monograph tells the story of the boom in the açaí ( Euterpe oleracea Mart.) fruit economy—from a rural staple to a chic health food delicacy in national and international markets—and examines the development of the production systems and commodity chains required to supply the burgeoning demand for this fruit. It also carefully reconsiders the contested and stigmatized history of the social identity of caboclos.

Contributions of the New York Botanical Garden
Volume 21.
Southeast Asian Grasslands: Understanding a Vernacular Landscape. Michael R. Dove (ed.) 2008. ISBN: 978-0-89327-485-6. 372 pp., 25 figures. Paperback. $55.00
This title is volume 21 of Contributions of The New York Botanical Garden. Local communities and non-local development agencies often hold diametrically opposing views of grasslands. Villagers may see grasslands as fragile, whereas officials see them as tenacious. The purpose of this volume is to examine some of these constraints, based on canonical studies from the past half-century on Southeast Asia, which has some of the most extensive and most intensely debated grasslands in the world.

Britton‘s Botanical Empire: The New York Botanical Garden and American Botany, 1888-1929. Memoirs of New York Botanical Garden Volume 94. Peter Mickulas. 2007. In the 1890s botanist Nathaniel Lord Britton united New York City’s private Gilded Age wealth with the expertise of its increasingly well-respected scientific community in order to realize his vision of a world-class botanical research institution situated within the landscaped confines of a newly annexed Bronx park. The resulting New York Botanical Garden was constructed, in part with municipal funds, as a grand and prestigious outdoor urban space for the enjoyment and education of a wide citizen base. Britton’s foremost concern, however, was the establishment of a New York venue for botanical science. Convinced of the necessity of scientific independence from European centers of knowledge, Britton used the Botanical Garden to create a decidedly American place for the practice of New World botany by mounting a series of expeditions that catalogued the flora of the Western Hemisphere, most significantly the US colony of Puerto Rico. Britton sought to position the Garden to take advantage of the emerging philanthropic support of practical science at that time; in doing so, he emphasized the needs of a scientific institution over those of a picturesque public park. Britton’s success in establishing the Garden illustrates the ways in which taxonomic botany remained a priority among scientific endeavors into the twentieth century and beyond. Today, thanks to this auspicious beginning, The New York Botanical Garden ranks among the most important institutions, both for New York City and the botanical world.

Guide to the Bryophytes of Tropical America

By S. Robbert Gradstein and Steven P. Churchill et al.
Bryophytes (hornworts, liverworts, and mosses) are a rich and diverse element of the neotropical flora. In their roles as water reservoirs they prevent soil erosion, and as sensitive reactors to water and air quality they are early indicators of degrading biodiversity and ecosystem quality. This guide is an indispensable tool for teachers of botany, ecology, and plant geography, as well as for those studying bryophytes and their role in the natural environment. The authors provide descriptions, illustrations, and keys to the 597 genera and 120 families of bryophytes recorded from tropical America. The generic descriptions include data on the diversity, distribution, and ecology of the group within the Neotropics, important morphological characters, salient features for identification, and relevant literature for species identification. The highly informative introduction includes discussions of morphology; life cycle; characters useful for identification, with explanations of their technical terms and detailed drawings illustrating them; distribution and conservation; the bryophytes most characteristic of various habitats; and bryophyte collection and processing. A glossary and listings of important bryological literature and important bryological herbaria in tropical America also appear in the introduction.

Building on Indigenous Management of Borneo‘s Tropical Rain Forests
Beyond Slash and Burn; Building on Indigenous Management of Borneo‘s Tropical Rain Forests

By Carol J. Pierce Colfer and Nancy Peluso et al.
What is the world giving up when tropical rainforests are destroyed? The authors ponder this question from the view of the Uma‘ Jalan Kenyah, an indigenous people of eastern Borneo, by examining the complex management systems they have developed for tropical forests. This work reports on the many uses the Kenyah make of the various stages of forest regrowth, the under-recognized benefits gained from the forest, and the forest‘s value beyond that which is attached to it by outsiders. The book‘s final chapter offers recommendations on how the Uma Jalan Kenyah system might be adapted to help in the conservation of tropical rainforests and the continued subsistence of traditional rain forest communities. Twelve appendixes, including sections on population data and local uses of plants from forests and home gardens, complete this volume.

Non-Timber Products from Tropical Forests: Evaluation of a Conservation and Development Strategy

Edited by Daniel C. Nepstad and Stephan Schwartzman
The practice of extracting economically valuable non-timber forest products while leaving forests structurally and functionally intact is an ancient one. In modern terms it is seen as a possible means of reconciling the needs of groups of people with conflicting concepts of forest resource use. This volume is a collection of papers from international experts in a variety of fields discussing whether and how extractive reserves could be expanded economically and geographically to meet the dual objective of conserving the natural resources of tropical forests and developing tropical regions economically and socially.

Proceedings of Cycad 2005: The 7th International Conference on Cycad Biology. Memoirs of the New York Botanical Garden Volume 97. Edited by Andrew P. Vovides and Dennis W. Stevenson. 2007. Cycads have been around for 250 million years, during which time they have retained seemingly unchanged features. They also have developed unique characteristics that are used today in medicine and agriculture, lending to their status as an irreplaceable group within the world’s biodiverse plant kingdom. The International Conference on Cycad Biology, held every three years since its inception in 1987, has become a prominent meeting, centering on all aspects of the biology of this unusual, important, and interesting group of plants. The conferences stimulate research ranging from horticultural aspects to conservation and neurobiology and promote ex-situ and in-situ conservation globally. Each of the conferences has produced a volume of papers on the varied aspects of cycad biology; this volume is the seventh and most extensive in the series. This volume represents the current state of knowledge about the evolution, pollination biology, ethnobotany, conservation status, and molecular biological aspects, among other topics, of the living cycads. Some of the articles are in Spanish, and all have Spanish and English abstracts. Even though these plants have survived the vicissitudes of time and trials, they are now endangered as a result of human activities. Of particular interest are the several papers in this volume on the conservation biology—both ex situ and in situ—of the group, pest control issues, the role of insects and birds in the biology of cycads, and the relationship of these plants to human activities and their role in many cultures.

Hepaticae of the Amazon and the Andes of Peru and Ecuador
By Richard Spruce
This classic work, originally published in 1885 in the Transactions and Proceedings of the Botanical Society of Edinburgh, provided the most thorough treatment of South American hepatics of its time. In devising his own classification scheme for Hepaticae, Spruce recognized four sub-orders, described more than 500 new taxa, and made sense of a number of perplexing groups (e.g., Lejeuneaceae) with his use of intermediate categories.. His eye for detail and his precise diagnoses set him apart from his contemporaries and this remains the most comprehensive treatment of the extensive hepatic flora of these regions of South America. Also contains an introduction and index to taxa described in Hepaticae Amazonicae et Andinae by Barbara M. Thiers.

Plants have been the source of folk medicines for centuries. The acquisition of plant material to meet the large-scale demands of the herbal and pharmaceutical industries has applied added pressures to plant resources, straining and degrading them as a result. The authors have selected several plant species valued in traditional and contemporary medical practice to illustrate the impact of over-harvesting on natural and human forest communities. They use case histories to discuss the most pressing issues and present local models for addressing these issues. The authors conclude that our dependence on medicinal solutions to health problems will dictate a policy of cooperation among traditional, herbal, and pharmaceutical interests in the search for more balanced harvesting and conservation methods.

The Moss Flora of Mexico
By Aaron J. Sharp and Howard Crum, et al.
Work on this monograph began in the early 1940s as an effort to determine the degree to which the flora of Mexico and the southern Appalachian Mountains are similar. The flora presented in this volume represents the efforts of 32 experts active in floristic and monographic revisions of families and genera represented in Mexico. Their collective work represented here has expanded the known ranges of the Mexican species of mosses, netted many species new to science, and placed many others in synonymy, thereby demonstrating phytogeographic ties to many parts of the world other than the Southern Appalachians.

Orchid Biology: Reviews and Perspectives. Volume IX of Scholarly Series Presents the Most Current Knowledge in Orchidology. Memoirs of New York Botanical Garden Volume 95. Kenneth M. Cameron, Joseph Arditti, and Tiiu Kull. 2007. The editors of this volume have continued the series’ tradition of profiling an outstanding leader in the field by offering an autobiography of Calaway Dodson, whose research on the orchids of Ecuador continues to inspire generations of botanists. Through his many studies, Dr. Dodson has contributed significantly to our understanding of neotropical orchid pollination by bees, although some orchids have evolved unique strategies for attracting butterfly and moth pollinators. This is the subject of a chapter by the late Dutch orchidologist Nelis van der Cingel explaining that most orchids pollinated by Lepidoptera are native to temperate regions of the world. Temperate orchids are also the focus of a chapter by Russian orchidologist Irina Tatarenko, who presents a comprehensive survey of terrestrial orchid morphology, many studies of which were published originally in Russian or languages other than English.  Two chapters of the volume relate to France. For the first time in the series, an English translation is offered for a classic work of orchid scientific literature: the original writings on orchid seed germination by Noël Bernard. His fellow countryman Pierre Jacquet not only provides this outstanding translation, but also presents the historical contributions of French scientists to orchidology worldwide. Botanical history is also the subject of a chapter on the origin of Singapore’s national flower, the well-known hybrid orchid Vanda ‘Miss Joaquim’, which was first described in 1893. Finally, American Ken Cameron offers a thorough overview of the impact that DNA sequence data has made in orchid systematics by focusing on the first decade of contributions in molecular phylogenetic studies of Orchidaceae. In keeping with tradition, the book concludes with a detailed appendix, the subject of which is species-by-species records from pollination to fruit ripening, seed maturation, and germination of orchids. This information will be particularly useful to horticulturists growing orchids from seed. Memoirs of The New York Botanical Garden, Volume 95. 562 pages; 27 illustrations. $85.00

Evolution and Ecology of Palms

By Andrew Henderson
Palms are among the most abundant, diverse, and economically important families of plants found in the tropical and subtropical regions of the world. Within the tropics, especially in lowland moist forests, palms are extremely abundant in terms of both numbers of species and individuals, and are clearly an imortant part of the ecosystem. In addition, palms have a fascinating life history, much of it related to their morphology: they are not trees, yet they have woody stems and are not classified as herbaceous plants. The large number of species, tropical habitat, and diversity of palms combine to produce a compelling subject for the study of evolution and ecology at the family level. Moreover, with their aesthetic appearance and distinctive and apparently simple architecture, palms seem to have an intrinsic appeal for tropical botanists and non-botanists alike. Despite this appeal and considering their economic importance, there is limited knowledge of many aspects of the family. In fact, the very reasons we find palms appealing contribute to their relative intractability as objects of scientific study. Their woody stems and tropical habitats are among the factors limiting a more extensive study of palms. Systematic knowledge of the many species is mostly incomplete. In this work, Henderson bring together and analyzes the relevant literature and data in an attempt to understand something of the evolution and ecology of the palm family, and integrates this disparate knowledge into a cohesive whole. Andrew Henderson is a Curator in the Institute of Systematic Botany at The New York Botanical Garden and author of a number of books and papers on palms. Among his publications are: The Palms of the Amazon, A Field Guide to the Palms of the Americas, and Evolution, Variation, and Classification of Palms.

Evolution, Variation, and Classification of Palms
Edited by Andrew Henderson and Finn Borchsenius
The 26 papers comprising this volume were contributed by well-known palm researchers and reflect four themes: species and species concepts, species-level data, species-level case studies, and higher-level classification. Broad and narrow species concepts are provided and the usefulness of the different approaches discussed. Examples of species complexes illustrate the intractability of accounting for variation with conventional methods. The broad general differences in diversity between geographical areas are discussed, as are their possible causes.

Ethnobotany of the Shuar of Eastern Ecuador

By Bradley C. Bennett and Marc A. Baker et al.
Amazonian Ecuador, an area roughly the size of England, supports both a diverse flora and ethnic population. Approximately 3,000 plant species are known from the area. At least 17 and possibly as many as 26 distinct cultural groups lived in the region before European contact. The Shuar are one of eight ethnic peoples currently inhabiting this region. They are among Ecuador‘s most important and influential ethnic groups and constitute Amazonia‘s second largest indigenous population—roughly 40,000—but until now there have been no comprehensive studies of Shuar ethnobotany. Amazonia‘s native people use much of the regions plant diversity, about half of which have been documented as to Shuar use. The Shuar have survived a century of colonization. Unconquered by the Incas and Spanish, the Shuar now face a more subtle threat—that of cultural erosion. Despite the onslaught of deforestation and acculturation, the Shuar have maintained many aspects of their traditional practices especially the use of wild and cultivated plants. They have also begun to record their traditions. This volume provides a wealth of information about climatic data, previous ethnobotanical studies, description of the area, and Shuar ethnology and history. The authors identify 579 species of plants used by the Shuar, making this work one of the most comprehensive ethnobotanical surveys of any Amazonian culture. Although this represents roughtly only half of the plants used by the Shuar, it is a good baseline for further research.

Várzea: Diversity, Development, and Conservation of Amazonia‘s Whitewater Floodplains
Edited by Christine Padoch and José M. Ayres et al.
For centuries, the Várzea has been an important area for resource extraction, agriculture, and settlement. Additionally, many areas of the floodplains are crucial habitats for the reproduction of numerous species and others are home to populations of important and severely threatened endemics. The annual floods that make these lands agriculturally desirable also make them difficult to exploit by modern agricultural methods. This book covers five of today‘s most pressing issues facing the Várzea: fish and fisheries; forests and forestry; conservation; soils and river dynamics; and land resources management. The different sections highlight the conflict between conservation and development in this region by discussing the various approaches that are being proposed and implemented for both conserving the Várzea‘s valuable resources and attempting to enhance the social and economic needs of floodplain farmers, fishers, and forest managers.

Wildflowers for All Seasons

By Anna Vojtech and Ghillean T. Prance
This collection of 129 watercolors of New England wildflowers is the result of a collaboration between Anna Vojtech, well-known and widely published botanical artist, and Sir Ghillean Prance, former Senior Vice President for Science at The New York Botanical Garden, Director emeritus of The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, and current Scientific Director of The Eden Project in Cornwall, England. In Wildflowers for All Seasons, Vojtech‘s paintings are arranged in four sections reflecting seasonal flowering in New England‘s coastal and inland areas. Each section is preceded by an introduction by the artist. Each illustration is accompanied by Prance‘s clear and concise text. In addition to common names, scientific name, and plant family, Prance has provided interesting facts about each species, including its history, name derivations, description, natural distribution range, and uses.

The Botany of the Guayana Highland. Part IV
By Bassett Maguire and John J. Wurdack
(one volume) In this first volume of part 4, Maguire, Wurdack, and collaborators report on the following groups from the Guayana Highland: Musci by E. B. Bartram; Xyridaceae, Marantaceae, Linaceae, and Ochnaceae by B. Maguire and J. J. Wurdack; Bromeliaceae by L. B. Smith; Annonaceae by R. E. Fries; Rutaceae by R. S. Cowan—with a contribution on Spathelia by G. K. Brizicky; Guttiferae by B. Maguire; Aquifoliaceae and Melastomataceae by J. J. Wurdack; and Acanthaceae by E. C. Leonard. T. Morley collaborated in the study of the genus Mouriri. The next three articles complement the first. Stern and Brizicky determine that Diomma is closely related to Sohnreyia (Rutaceae) and that both genera are related to Spathelia (subfamily Spatheliodeae). Cowan and Brizicky then modify the positions of all three genera by reducing them to subgenera in the genus Spathelia. Lastly, Carlquist offers his anatomical study of Guayana Xyridaceae, the results of which confirm earlier specific and subspecific designations of Maguire and others.
