Dear Friends, AIPC is pleased to present the Special Issue n° 3 which belongs to the series specifically addressed to the English-speaking friends of the Association. This special double issue of AIPC Magazine 14 (June 2009), now available on CD, includes an incredibly beautiful monograph by Gabriele Basso completely devoted to Mexican Pinguicula, and it is divided in 3 parts:
• Part I: The Mexican Pinguicula: distribution and habitat, phenology, morphology and classification • Part II: Species by species • Part III: Cultivation
I had the chance to read it few days ago and discover a very impressive monograph's everybody should have.
No need to say that it is easily readable and understanding even if you discover this wonderfull genus or not. (I am sure that you will find some details you thought knowing). Pictures have a very high quality.
Mexican Pinguicula can be proud of Gabriele Basso's work (and other contributors too) that give these fascinating plants the monograph deserved and long thought after.
