Guyana Plant Collection Provides Insight to Biodiversity


The Guianas region of South America (Guyana, Surinam, and French Guiana) is little known and extremely rich biologically. Unlike other areas of South America, over 70 percent of the natural habitat remains pristine. Since these areas are now threatened by increased resource extraction, it is important that an understanding of the flora and fauna is gained so that decisions can be made on critical areas that have high priority for conservation. The Biological Diversity of the Guianas (BDG), a field-oriented program of the National Museum of Natural History (NMNH), Smithsonian Institution, has recently published "Smithsonian Plant Collections, Guyana: 1989 - 1991, Lynn J. Gillespie," (2003, Smithsonian Institution, Contributions from the United States National Herbarium 44: 1-104). This publication details the Guyana collections of Lynn J. Gillespie, a resident BDG plant collector who organized 19 expeditions exploring the remote areas of the Guianas.

The publication, written by Tom Hollowell (NMNH), Lynn Gillespie (Canadian Museum of Nature, Ottawa), Vicki Funk (NMNH), and Carol Kelloff (NMNH), is intended as a comprehensive reference for herbaria holding collections made by the collector and as an aid to taxonomists interested in particular groups of plants. The volume also contains a list of collections of particular interest (including four species new to science), a fascinating narrative about the collecting trips, and photographs of localities and plants taken by Gillespie.

Part I of the volume provides the collector's notes on trips in chronological order. Part II lists collection localities, with collection number ranges, habitat descriptions, geographic coordinates, and assisting collectors. Part III consists of maps of Guyana showing collecting localities. Part IV lists collections in numerical order with species identifications and authors. Part V lists plant collections ordered by determined name. The appendix is a personal account by the collector describing some of her experiences while collecting plants in Guyana.

This volume is the second in a series on the Smithsonian Institution's BDG collectors, the first being on the collections of John J. Pipoly, which is available at <http://www.mnh.si.edu/biodiversity/bdg/collector.html>.

Future Meetings


Nearly all centuries from ancient times have used plants as a source of medicine. The use of traditional medicine for the maintenance of good health has been widely observed in most countries. The recent upsurge in the use of herbal medicines has led to enormous commercial possibilities, but many issues remain unresolved. Today, many medicinal plant species face extinction or severe genetic loss, but detailed information is lacking. In the present context, an International Summit on Medicinal Plants will be a forum for scientists, researchers and policy makers to meet and discuss the key areas of conservation of medicinal plants, health care and ethnomedicine. Century Foundation will host the Global Summit on Medicinal Plants in Mauritius Island from 26 September to 01 October, 2003. The main theme of the conference is "Recent Trends in Phytomedicine and Other Alternative Therapies for Human Welfare." The conference will draw attention to the vital importance of medicinal plants and other therapies in health care. There will be exciting programs of plenary lectures, oral and poster presentations and round table discussions. For registration and further information please visit <http://www.cenfound.org>, or contact the organizing secretary, Dr. Anita Menon, Century Foundation, #35 3rd Cross, Vignannagar, Malleshpalya, Bangalore-560075 India; Tel: +91-80-5249900; Fax: +91-80-5244592; E-mail: cenfound@yahoo.co.uk.

The Second Tropical Montane Cloud Forest Symposium will be held 28 July to 02 August, 2004, on the Island of Hawai'i, at Waimea, Hawai'i Preparatory Academy (near cloud forest). "Mountains in the Mist: Science for Conserving and Managing Tropical Montane Cloud Forests" will assess the state of updated knowledge since the First TMCF Symposium in Puerto Rico in 1993. Cost is approximately $575 per person, double occupancy lodging, meals, coffee breaks, banquet, field trips and proceedings. While no further abstracts are being accepted for major papers, poster contributions, and short 4-page handouts, which may be used in the proceedings, are still accepted. For registration and further details contact Lawrence S. Hamilton, Vice-Chair (Mountains), World Commission on Protected Areas/IUCN, 342 Bittersweet Lane, Charlotte VT 05445; Tel/Fax: 802-425-6509; E-mail: hamiltonx2@mindspring.com.
