Program for February 21, 2018
Bromeliads A to Z Part I
The world of Bromeliad taxonomy has been turned upside down with the advent of DNA testing. Generas that have been accepted for years have been merged and deleted and others added. Plant names that have been around for decades have changed their genus. DNA evaluation of some of the subfamilies of bromeliads has just started, and will no doubt continue to change the way we group and name bromeliads.
Part I of Bromeliads A to Z will be the topic of the February program of the Sacramento Bromeliad and Carnivorous Plant Society. It will cover the the six new genera created from the former Pitcairnioideae as well as the new breakdown of the 1527 members of the Tillandsioideae subfamily.
Presenter: Keith Smith
Long time member Keith Smith will guide you through the new nomenclature and illustrate members of all the subfamilies in a slide program.
