I picked up Francois at the airport last night and we are very excited about his talks on Thursday at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, VA and at Meadowview on Saturday. Please let me know if you can attend either talk. The talk at Meadowview on Saturday will include a webinar, see http://www.pitcherplant.org/Newslett...tml#livestream, where you can ask questions electronically and see the lecture.
Francois has done some amazing research in Indo-China and you will see some remarkable habitat for Nepenthes and other rare plants.
