Even more deserving are the folks in South Africa who made these
collections possible: the one and only Cameron McMaster, our trip
leader and plantsman extraordinaire; Lita Cole, our guide in the
Kamieskroon area who facilitated the Modderfontein visit; and Koos
Claasen from Jacobs Bay, a tireless advocate for the conservation of
the coastal habitat of the beautiful Daubenya zeyheri. Koos also
discovered a new species of Iris in the same area, the naming rights
of which were recently auctioned for R550000 (that's ~$80,000!). For
more details, see:


Thanks should also go to Rachel and Rod Sanders, the driving force
behind IBSA and the symposium that got us there in the first place.
And don't forget Paul Cumbleton, the real donor of some of the seeds,
and a continuing evangelist for massonias, daubenyas, and their ilk.

Me? I just put the stamp on the envelope...
