Photo request from Archbold Biological Station

Recommended Posts

Scott Zona

Calling all you photographers. Dr. Eric Menges has asked for photos from our Biennial visit to Archbold to use in their facebook page (see message below). Please contact Dr. Menges directly if you can help out with a photo or two.


We’d like to publicize the IPS visit on our facebook page. Did you or did anyone on your tour take any good photos for this purpose. An ideal one would be a people photo, perhaps also featuring a palm.



Dr. Eric S. Menges

Director, Plant Ecology Program and Senior Research Biologist

Archbold Biological Station

Venus, FL 33960

Office Phone: 863-465-2571 ext. 234

I have a few as well, I'll post them here later today and maybe Dr. Eric Menges could check in here on Palmtalk and have a look for himself and select what he likes then if he picks one of mine for example, I could send him the higher definition version. Is he a member of IPS ?

It was a pleasure visiting, we Australians love palms in habitat more than anything, well, cold beers on a hot day might win out. Thanks for your efforts, very much appreciated and I hope these photos help. I would suggest you check out photos by Jack Sayers as well and I'm certain Daryl (seen in last pic here) would have some great photos too, along with plenty of the others. All I ask in return is for you to encourage your associates and friends to join the International Palm Society, let's do all we can and every little bit helps to protect and save these fantastic plants, thanks.

      IPS has posted it's pre & post tours.   Unfortunately, the do not go to areas where you can see the Spiny Forest, Succulents,  Baobabs.  Of course, it is the palm society so they are focused on palms.
      Is there anyone out there that would like to join us on Madagascar tour that would take us to see the iconic plants that I listed above ?   A tour company will customize. and provide a quote    So let me know if you are interested, and preference for either before or after the biennial in Reunion.

      I understand the 2020 IPS Biennial will be held in Reunion Island. Do we have firm dates yet? When will the travel details be available?

      Hello from Cali, Colombia. It is the evening of the Farewell Dinner, but I will take a few minutes to post some pics from the adventure. Bo (bgl) and I spent a few days in Bogotá in advance of the Biennial. We visited the Jardín Botanico de Bogotá and also went up the teleférico to the top of Montserrate to take in views of the city. The elevation of the city is 8,675 ft. (2,644 m.) and the top of the hill is 10,341 ft. (3,152 m.), a good way to acclimate for hiking at lower levels to see Ceroxylon.
