Hello all,

I am seeking all existing papers/revisions/monographs etc. on the genus
Filipendula so that I may engage in a taxonomic revision.  I have
located a few obscure papers, but this genus does not seem to be well

A botanist called I.A. Shantser (Shanzer?) has written extensively on
the subject, and wrote a taxonomic revision of Filipendula in 1994.
Unfortunately, I do not have ready access to those journals (Journal of
Japanese Botany, a couple of Russian journals).

If anyone knows Dr. Shantser's address (e- or snail), I would greatly
appreciate having it forwarded so I may contact him/her and see what the
next step should be.  Of course, if anyone else out there is studying
Filipendula, then we should talk...

Thank you in advance,
