A few days ago John Nelson posted a message on Taxacom requesting
identification for a plant depicted in the NY Times of Sunday, 10 Jun.
It is a picture of a street vendor in Bangladesh selling flowering
branches of a plant called the Kadam tree. The tree turned out to be
Neolamarckia chinensis, a Rubiaceae.
Here in the National Botanic Garden of Belgium (BR, Meise), a team of
specialists works on the systematics of the Rubiaceae family. We also
try to gather all bibliographical references to members of this family.
We therefore would love to have a copy of the picture (and text) printed
in the NY Times of Jun. 10. Is there a U.S. collegue who can help us
with this?
Many thanks in advance.
