Derrick Posted July 13, 2020 Report Share Posted July 13, 2020 It is sad that too many members of ant-plant circles seem focused primarily on the acquisition of plants with little regard for an acquisition of knowledge. Certainly, unless I duplicate information here, that I have already disseminated on my Facebook group. It DOES NOT get shared. For example, I have posted an update to my section (it took weeks of long day's work) on "Other Ant-plant Families" which now lists probably all known Neotropical ant-plant Melastomataceae (including terrestrials) plus additions to other Neotropical ant-friendly families. I have vastly extended this section due to an influx of South American members (mostly academics) into my Facebook group because my tome is being translated into Spanish. There is an automatic Dropbox link on my group to this rather large section. https://www.facebook.com/groups/498723016920977/ I regularly promote this group but I am not aware of any reciprocation. And let us be honest, it is mostly moribund. Another fascinating fact is the VERY NOVEL presence of extrafloral nectaries in Myrmecodia horrida.
