Melanie, et al,
I have found that APG listers, when contacted off-list, are more than
willing to share their expertise on a certain topic. I also have "dumb"
questions that I don't post to the APG list but will ask someone
privately. After all, these lists are archived publicly and I have a
professional reputation to uphold. :-D Mary

Sometimes I am hesitant to bring up these questions on the APG list because of the broadness of the umbrella. This list has already proven it's weight in gold to me. Thank you!
