NEW   BOOK   NEEDS  PHOTOS  
From:  Andy  MacKinnon  <AMACKINNON at galaxy.gov.bc.ca>

Jim Pojar, Andy MacKinnon and a whole host of others have a book
coming out next spring (1994) on the plants of the Pacific coast
from Alaska to Oregon, the ocean to the height of  land  in  the
Coast  and  Cascade  Mountains.  It will be similar in format to
1992's "Plants of Northern B.C." and, like that  book,  will  be
co-published  by  the  Ministry  of Forests, Forestry Canada and
Lone Pine Publishing. We'll need about 1000  colour  photographs
(35  mm  slides  preferred)  of individual plant species for the
book. We have perhaps 75% of the  slides  we  need  in  our  own
collections,  but  still  need  those  pesky  other 25%, and are
always looking for slides better than those in our  collections.
We  will  accept  donated  slides (in exchange for a copy of the
book when it's out), or will discuss payment for  permission  to
reproduce  photos  if  you  prefer. All slides will be carefully
documented and transported, and returned to you ASAP. All photos
will be credited.

If you're interested, please contact  Andy  MacKinnon  at:  B.C.
Forest  Service,  Research  Branch, 31 Bastion Square, Victoria,
B.C., Canada V8W 3E7. Phone: (604-) 387-6536, fax:  (604-)  387-
0046, e-mail: AMACKINNON at GALAXY.GOV.BC.CA

OREGON STATE UNIVERSITY HERBARIUM - JOB OPPORTUNITY
From: Aaron Liston <listona at BCC.ORST.EDU> via TAXACOM

Two  curatorial  assistant positions are available in the Oregon
State University Herbarium. One position is full time, the other
is half-time. Primary responsibilities include  the  integration
of  the  OSU and University of Oregon vascular plant, bryophyte,
and lichen herbaria into a newly installed mobile  storage  sys-
tem.  This  will  involve the specimen by specimen comparison of
the collections, assessment and de-accessioning  of  duplicates,
nomenclatural  verification, and specimen re-filing. These posi-
tions are funded for two years by the National  Science  Founda-
tion  Research  Collections  in Systematics and Ecology Program.
Minimum qualifications include a B.Sc. degree in  botany,  biol-
ogy,  or  related  discipline  and prior experience in herbarium
curation. Although the majority of the work  will  involve  vas-
cular plant curation, some lichen and bryophyte curation is also
required. Applicants should submit a cover letter stating inter-
est  in  the  full and/or half-time position, a curriculum vitae
and three letters of reference  (have  sent  directly)  to:  Dr.
Aaron Liston, Herbarium Director, Department of Botany and Plant
Pathology,  Cordley  Hall 2082, Oregon State University, Corval-
lis, OR 97331-2902 (tel: 503  737  5301,  FAX:  503  737  3573).
Closing date for the receipt of applications is December 1,1993.
Oregon  State  University  is an affirmative action equal oppor-
tunity employer and is responsive to the  needs  of  dual-career
couples.


A GUIDE TO THE CANADIAN SYSTEMATICS/PHYTOGEOGRAPHY

Dr.  Ernie  Small  started  to compile a literature guide to the
Canadian vascular plant  taxonomy  and  phytogeography  for  the
Canadian  Botanical Association. He is interested in your career
lists of publications suitable for inclusion into the guide.  He
would  also  like  to hear from the zoologists with publications
related to vascular plants and phytogeography, and from consult-
ants who produced unpublished reports for government (and other)
agencies. Please send your lists to
