    I talked to friend who used to go botanizing with some other botanists. He said basically over a week they would pin point an area or location to start and a perrimeter to be combed thoroughly. Come Friday after work they would take off and make it back just in time for work Monday morning or take a few extra days off depending on where they were going. They were cactus hunters though not CP.

    Cactus hunters...man. Cp hunters have only a couple of "toothy" ones to watch out for, but if you don't drop one of these cacti on the first shot.....

    To recognize a new species, you must be able to recognize known ones. That requires more effort and time than most are willing or able to devote to plants.

    Seedjar,

    Swing down to the Butterwort (Pinguicula)part of these forums. There are some pics of two recently discovered species from Cuba and discussion on those. Both are gorgeous, btw. One is red flowered and the other looks like a red sundew, lol.
    This may give you some insight.

    Cheers,

    Joe
