Carnivorous Plant Newsletter is a recently conceived quarterly publication for those who have a serious interest in the subject and is intended for nonprofessional as well as professional botanists. CPN features news, short notes, photos, and reviews of recent literature and has a seed and plant exchange for subscribers. For additional information write one of the co-editors J. A. Mazrimas, 329 Helen Way, Livermore, Calif. 94550, or D. E. Schnell, Rt. 4, Box 275B, Statesville, N.C.28677.
The widely used model species for plants, the fully sequenced Arabidopsis thaliana cv Columbia (hereafter called Arabidopsis, unless another strain or species is stated) , is widely known as the weed by the plant biology community, and has often been called a weed by those who study it. The electronic newsletter of Arabidoptologists was called Weeds World, the Weed Science Society of America lists it as a weed (common name mouse-eared cress, ARBTH ), and many renowned scientists have referred to it as a weed in publications in prestigious journals (Bartel and Last 2004 Buell 1998 Ecker 1998 Federspiel 2000 Kunkel 1996 Meyerowitz 1989 Rensink and Buell 2004). Does this consensus make it a weed

Another group that has earned well-deserved attention for its part in building worldwide interest in carnivorous plants is the Carnivorous Plant Newsletter. It was launched in the early 1970s by co-editors D. E. Schnell of Statesville, North Carolina, and J. A. Mazrimas of Liver-more, California. Together these two carnivorous plant enthusiasts have also helped to organize a global fraternity of carnivorous cultivators. Their periodic Newsletter is packed with names of subscribers from the far reaches of the planet. The Newsletter also provides details on subscribers' experiments, from the simple to the far-advanced electronic methods for testing plant responses. Since this list is expanding constantly it has become an important living thing itself. Updating is done periodically in the pages of the Ctrr-nivorous Plant Newsletter. Subscriptions are available for 2 per year within the continental United States, Canada, and Mexico for 3 annually overseas. You can get details from either...
In 1989, while still in the employment of the World Bank, Richard Grimshaw created the Vetiver Information Network, later converted in 1995 to a non-profit organization with a Board of Directors and independently audited accounts through which information pertaining to vetiver can be disseminated, collected and re-networked. Communications for the Network are made via a publication, the Vetiver Newsletter, over the internet and on its website page (http www.vetiver.org). The initial audience, as well as the database, for this Vetiver Network came from World Bank counterparts, their partners and associated research stations throughout the world. The core network consisted of 500 to 800 institutions, many involved in natural resource management and rural development. In 1997 the network comprised over 4,000 contacts in about 100 countries, with unknown numbers of potential contacts through re-networking. The Vetiver Grass Network has also been able to address instances of management...
The names listed here are those researched by Ron Fleming, and appeared in the March 1979 issue of the Carnivorous Plant Newsletter. The names are followed by the breeder's name when known, date of the cross or when it was offered for sale, the hybrid group, and its supposed lineage. The hybrid group indicates that the plant is almost identical to other named hybrids. The hybrid group name used is usually the earliest hybrid of the group.
Useful review, since five species are completely described, and all of these occur in the east as well. Kondo, K. 1972. A comparison of variability in Utri-cularia cornuta and Utricularia juncea. American Journal of Botany 59 23-37. A very thorough comparative description of these two species. Kondo, K. (with additional commentary by Peter Taylor). 1973. A key for the North American species of Utricularia. Carnivorous Plant Newsletter 2 66-69. An excellent, updated, easy-to-use key with difficult points illustrated. Reinert, G. W., and Godfrey, R. K. 1962. Reappraisal of Utricularia inflata and U. radiata. American Journal of Botany 49 213-20. Another good comparison of two similar species.
Carnivorous plants may also be obtained by joining a specialist society. There are several carnivorous plant societies throughout the world and one in Britain, which provides a seed and plant exchange scheme for members. In addition, the society gives advice, publishes a newsletter and journal, exhibits at flower shows, holds lectures and meetings and arranges field trips. A SPECIALIST SOCIETY LIST is available from The Horticultural Adviser, RHS Garden, Wisley, Woking, Surrey GU23 6QB.
However, seeds are becoming more available from firms that specialize in carnivorous plants. Other hobbyists offer seeds in exchange for seeds or plants of other types of carnivores for their collections. The Carnivorous Plant Newsletter and Plant Oddities Club both offer this service to subscribers and members from time to time.
Vetiver grass is valued by rural communities for its long-lasting usefulness as a plaiting grass in the production of such items as mats, hats, rope and mullen, baskets, belts, combs, fans, hairbrushes, lamp shades, sandals, toothpicks and fire-lighters. The value of these by-products is difficult to quantify and, in any event, is small. However, they can represent important small-scale industries in rural communities having both a cash and social value and aiding in the preservation of the social fabric (Grimshaw and Helfer, 1995 TVN Newsletter, 1996). For handicraft pictures see Chapter 3. Rural communities have discovered over time a wide-ranging domestic and medicinal application for both the leaves and roots of vetiver grass. Domestically these include leaf infusion as a tea, curry seasoning, meat spice, root aroma in drinking water, sachets filled with ground root as a pleasant aroma and to deter moths from hanging clothes and as an insect repellent, notably against fleas....
