  1. Dear All, We are glad to to inform you that the PDF-English version of AIPC Magazine n.1 (2018) completely dedicated to a field trip in Abruzzo is finally ready. Abruzzo is a marvellous region from a naturalistic point of view, but also rich in culture and traditions and, above all, in Pinguicula (three species, P. vulgaris and the endemic P. fiorii and P. vallis-regiae, two subspecies, P. vulgaris subsp. ernicaand P. vulgaris subsp. vestina; we present also P. vulgaris subsp. anzalonei wich occurs just across the border of the region). Unfortunately, this is also a wounded land, struck in recent years by devastating earthquakes that have caused many victims. AIPC has dedicated an entire magazine to this beautiful region and started a fundraising through the sale of this journal in Italy and abroad. This was certainly a spontaneous, symbolic almost dutiful act, immediately shared by the Board and all the members of AIPC. We have decided to donate the funds collected to the population of Campotosto, a village in Abruzzo that has the sad record of having been near the epicentres of the worst earthquakes that have recently struck central Italy. Obviously at the end of the fundraising we will inform you of the amount obtained thanks to your help. You have 3 options: - you can donate 20 € or more and you will receive the hard copy of the journal in Italian and the PDF-English version (shipping costs included) - you can donate 5 € or more to recieve just the PDF-English version - if you're not interested neither in the journal nor in the PDF-English version you can donate the amount you prefer (also less than 20 €). Here the link to the page of our website where you can find more info on the way of donation: LINK Many thanks for your help! Maurizio Saroldi, AIPC Editor Here some pictures from the PDF

  3. Thanks to all of you, sorry for my late reply. These plants are from seeds I obtained from a single plant that I had. I use a mix of calcareous sand, vermiculite and just few peat. Seeds germinated quite easily in may 2018, I kept the plantlets inside, in front of a window till fall, then inside a terrarium under LED, nothing special. Mau

  10. AIPC - Italian CP SOciety - is proud to have published an article by S. Jost Casper on Pinguicula sehuensis, the first butterwort reported from Sardinia and, as he writes "...the most important contribution to the taxonomy of the genus Pinguicula (Lentibulariaceae) in Europe during the past fifty years...". Here you can freely download the pdf English version of the article: CARNIVOROUS DOCS (you have just to click on the banner). Besides, on the same number of our journal (AIPC Magazine n. 40, vol. 2 June 2016) we have also published an interesting field trip report by Gabriele Basso who, in 2015, visited Sardinia to observe P. sehuensis in the wild. You can freely download the Italian pdf version here: MAGAZINE ONLINE (click on Pinguicula sehuensis. In the pdf you can find first Casper's article in Italian and following Basso's article with many beautiful pictures in the wild). I hope you like them. MAurizio Saroldi AIPC Editor

  12. Yes Aymeric, the text is absolutely the same (just a different graphic composition of the articles, more pics in AIPC's one) ...the author wrote first the article for Italian CP Society (it was published on the number of December 2015 of AIPC Magazine) and then, because of the value of that work, we have decided to share it with other CP Societies. Maurizio

  17. Thanks all of you. To Markus: maybe it is one of your plants taken at EEE in Padua last year. I don't remember if I took it from you or from Olive Gluch. Mau
  18. To reach Botanical Garden from Venice Airport: Cab. It has to be reserved within 72 hours before, writing to [email protected] with the subject "EEE2014 - Padova". There are special rates and they can organize groups thus reducing the expense. You can find the HelpDesk in the Arrival Hall (here a map http://www.veneziaportaest.com/docs/EN_desk_veneziaportaest.pdf) Here the special rates, Prices VAT included: Up to 2 pax: € 88,00 Up to 4 pax: € 99,00 Up to 6 pax: € 110,00 Up to 8 pax: € 121,00 Night Surcharge (21.00/07.00): + € 11,00 per transfer Prepayment via bank transfer, visa/mastercard or paypal. More expensive but simpler and faster than bus. The travel takes about 1 hour. Bus. At the airport you will find the reception service where you can make the ticket (€ 8.50). There is a bus each hour (8:05, 9:05, 10:05 ...) that arrives in Padua near the train station. Then you have to take the metro (€ 1.50) to arrive at Piazza delle Erbe or S. Antonio. So low prices but a little complicated and it takes about 2 hours.
  19. Dear friends, Click HERE to have all the info about: EEE program how to reach the Botanical Garden lectures (the list will be probably updated soon) selling area where you can eat (remember that if you want to have the packed lunch or to partecipate to the Saturday dinner you have to book and pay in advance within August, 31th) where to sleep All the best Maurizio Saroldi
