Welcome to my web site!
I started growing and studying ant-plants seriously in the year 2001. My intention is to use this site to share what I have learned and grown while at the same time learning more.
Specifically these are some of the things I will be doing here:
naturalist Odaordo Beccari who wrote extensively on Rubiaceous
ant-plants and named many of them. (this project is moving slowly, but his
drawing are on this site now)
I hope you will find things on this site of interest and value to you.
The scientific translations that will gradually appear here are due to the magnificent translation work of Mrs. Sara Magalotti Saralei70@aol.com
Sara has science background and does excellent quality translations to English
from French, Italian, Portuguese, Latin and Spanish (including Catalan).

An ant-plant internet group has been formed and it has attracted a number of people who are passionate about ant-plants. Excellent information and high quality photographs abound on the site. Visit “The Ant-Plant Forum” at www.myrmecodia.org
