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.

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.

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
