Ha ha.  Not much Gonz.  I've been digging in the Pitcairnioideae book lately.  Are you having trouble/disagreeing with S&D Tillies?  Not useful?  Outdated?  My biggest aggravation is the outdated info and the fact that I haven't started actually measuring and documenting the flowers.  I swear I am going to start (...I promise!)...soon.  What were you looking up and what was the trouble?

Still the bible though there are many additional documents and some corrections to it. It's all available digitally in Word docs so the books are not as well used now. Cheers, Pedro

No problems, I was just thinking of getting a second-hand edition. A question I do have though is ... does it contain habitat info such as altitude and rainfall?
Pete, how can you link to it digitally?

The digital files are available over here courtesy of Derek B who, with others, has compiled an amazing amount of data relevant to each species. This info is mostly very technical, botanical stuff though. Usually the recorded locations that the scientists have entered over the years are collated and published as well as altitude. Eventually the files (which include discussion and comparison files) will become available online but, in the meantime, the books will have to do. The cultivar registry has cultivar documents, if written, available already and something similar is coming for species. Pedro
