WikiProject Novels[edit]

Hi, I notice you are busy adding Brazilian novels and was wondering if you have an interest in joining WP:NOVELS :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page)/(Desk) 10:39, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

Welcome to Novels WikiProject[edit]

Book collection.jpg

Hi, and welcome to the Novels WikiProject! As you may have guessed, we're a group of editors working to improve Wikipedia's coverage of topics related to fiction books often referred to as "Novels".

A few features that you might find helpful:

There are a variety of interesting things to do within the project; you're free to participate however much—or little—you like:

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask one of the members, and we'll be happy to help you. Again, welcome! We look forward to seeing you around! :: Kevinalewis : (Talk Page)/(Desk) 10:01, 18 December 2006 (UTC)

Tecoma[edit]

Hi RCP - they are different genera, but were formerly (a long time ago!) treated as the same genus, so many of the species of Tabebuia were first described as species of Tecoma. They were then later split out into their own genus. Thus they have synonyms in Tecoma, even though they are no longer included in that genus - MPF 11:49, 19 February 2006 (UTC)

List of plants of Cerrado vegetation of Brazil[edit]

Oi RCP, Eu tenho as seguintes referências que poderiam ampliar esta lista e a lista da Caatinga:

  • Ferri, Mário Guimarães:A Vegetação de Cerrados Brasileiros (editado com Lagoa Santa de Warming).Edição conjunta Itatiaia e Edusp, 1973
  • Ferri, Mário Guimarães (coordenador):III Simpósio sobre o Cerrado, Ed. USP e Ed. Edgard Blücher, 1971
  • Proença, Carolyn; Oliveira, Rafael S. & Silva, Ana Palmira:Flores e Frutos do Cerrado, Ed. UnB e Imprensa Ofcial do Estado, 2000
  • Harley, Raymond M. & Ana Maria Giulietti:Flores Nativas da Chapada Diamantina.Ed. Rima 2004

Você acha que isto poderia ajudar? Berton 15:38, 19 February 2006 (UTC)

Hyacinthaceae[edit]

I would strongly recommend providing an explicit reference or citation for the list of genera provided for this or any other plant family. The circumscriptions of many flowering plant families are in a state of flux so one authority's list may differ considerably from another's. (And please check the spellings of the names, e.g., Hyacynthoides which I'm fairly certain is misspelled. The propagation of misspellings and other misinformation is one unfortunate result of uncritically copying from a website that is apparently not based on published data or peer-reviewed. I don't want to single you out, this has been one of my pet peeves at Wikipedia and one I have railed against numerous times.) MrDarwin 20:32, 24 August 2006 (UTC)

Aralia spinosa[edit]

Hi Ricardo--I'm pretty sure the application of the common name "toothache tree" to Aralia spinosa is erroneous. This name is generally used for Zanthoxylum, which has had a medicinal usage specifically for its supposed numbing properties. I have seen no references to such medicinal usage for Aralia spinosa although I see this name is used in one of the references linked in the article, and also found references to this name used for Aralia spinosa on the web. My suspicion is that this name arises from confusion of this species with Zanthoxylum, which shares some other common names with Aralia spinosa, and most likely because of sloppy scholarship in the herbal references. I'm not sure how best to deal with this in the article so I'm leaving it for now. MrDarwin 14:38, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

In your wanderings...[edit]

Hi RCP,

You've been all over my watchlist the past couple months... finally followed your contribs to see what it's all about :).

If during your travels through the collection of plant and garden articles you notice any that have "how-to" information (how to grow, sow, cut, dig, etc.), please let me know. This sort of information is frowned upon on wikipedia, and often gets deleted before it can be moved to wikibooks (where it's more than welcome... the {{Howto}} template unfortunately seems to do nothing more than spur contributors to delete these sections in order to "prevent their articles from being exiled to wikibooks").

Since you removed and then later re-added a link to b:A Wikimanual of Gardening, I assume you know where it all goes... if you want to just transwiki the stuff yourself, please do (but be sure to follow the WB protocols, or it will possibly end up getting deleted anyway). If you have any suggestions on building up that book, please let me know (or better yet just join the fun and write in it!) I suspect that a lot of wikipedia readers who go to plant articles are looking for this kind of information, and it's a good idea to keep any contributions along those lines somewhere for them.

BTW, Bailey's book was at one time transwikied (in it's entirety) from gutenburg to wikibooks (see b:Manual_of_Gardening), and has since been partially transferred to commons. If you'd be interested in annotating it (i.e., wikilinking and and such), it could be re-transwikied. --SB_Johnny|talk|books 19:38, 14 September 2006 (UTC)

Brazil[edit]

Hi how is life in Brazil? What is the temperature there at present? I have always wanted to go to Brazil, Argentina and Peru. My cousin Jonathen Cornelius lives in Lima who I may visit some time. São Paulo and Rio are a bit busy though!! Ernst Stavro Blofeld 15:18, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

My life in Barry in the countryside of the Vale of Glamorgan (the photo on the page is from my bedroom window) in Wales seems extremely privelaged compared to some people in Brazil. I studied Sao Paulo as part of my geography degree and I was amazed at the contrast in lifestyle that exists in the city. The very rich living in Gated communities next door to shanty town settlments because of uneven development. This causes a lot of resentment between the rich and poor which may lead to violence. What work have you been doing on wikipedia. I would be willing to help you out with starting Brazilian articles although I am very busy see my contribs. e.g Shalu Monastery, William Garwood, Margit Anna etc. Ernst Stavro Blofeld 16:08, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

How very extraordinary! I compiled the List of Fiats see the list but there is a fiat template you can use see Fiat Turbina. Ernst Stavro Blofeld 19:26, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

Nice work mate I like Acioa edulis. Your country is undoubtedly the most biologically rich and diverse on the planet. There must be millions of articles on Brazilian forestry and species that are missing from wikipedia. Do you agree? Ernst Stavro Blofeld 20:15, 11 November 2006 (UTC)

HI yes but the main problem is (I studied this for my 1st class Geography Degree) is that international debt in Brazil and the need to develop economically is seen as of primary importance with devastating consequences for the natural forest of Brazil. The rate of deforestation and logging to sell timber and to make way for mining and cattle ranches has been appalling. Not only does deforestation remove a extremely beautiful forest but it is removing one of the most important sources of oxygen on planet earth and removing an important in taker of Carbon dioxide - worsening current greenhouse effect problems. Not only that the burning of forest can only enhance Carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere. I am planning on a career as an ecologist myself. Understood? Ernst Stavro Blofeld 20:45, 11 November 2006 (UTC)

HI. I have seen Astrocaryum vulgare and have started Astrocaryum genus - please check this and categorize it further. but can I give you a few slight corrections on your English. ON the article Astrocaryum vulgare for instance it should read like this:

Astrocaryum vulgare is a palm native TO Amazon Rainforest vegetation, which IS typical of Pará state in Brazil

rather than from!! I speak Spanish and I know that the word de means to and from. It is probably similar in Portugese to English. Your English is very good though. Ernst Stavro Blofeld 15:59, 17 November 2006 (UTC)

Phytophthora[edit]

Question: On 21 February you added the Fungi Project banner to the Phytophthora discussion page. I thought that the Fungi Project was limited to Kingdom Fungi. Is it broader?

Radishes[edit]

Hi,

I noticed you re-added the medical uses section to radishes, with a reference. I removed it in the first place because of the lack of a reference for the treatment of intestinal parasites. I ended up removing your reference (as it had no actual 'references' of its own) but substituted another one I found that did have a reference list. All this to say you may want to look at the page again to see if th changes were acceptable.

Thanks,

WP:PLANTS importance assessment[edit]

Greetings! I've noticed you've been assessing some articles for WP:PLANTS. Thanks! With 6,000+ articles unassessed, we need all the help we can get. I just wanted to mention that you may have been assessing the articles' importance a little on the high side. Take a look at Wikipedia:WikiProject Plants/Assessment#Importance scale and also the discussion Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Plants#Assessment and Project Banner where I presented some information on assessment. Some of the articles like deadly nightshade may be highly read pages, but they present a narrow topic. So it doesn't seem to be Low-importance or High-importance. Mid seem like a good assessment. Though I suppose it doesn't matter much. I just wanted to bring those two links to your attention. :-) Cheers, --Rkitko (talk) 02:42, 1 April 2007 (UTC)

Carrot / Wild carrot[edit]

Hello. Back on April 1st (a bad day to do editing?) you added a merge to Carrot tag to Wild carrot, and then a merge to Wild carrot to Carrot. Today I noticed when someone removed the tag from Carrot, and then from Wild carrot, observing that they could not find any discussion on either talk page. Without some discussion, and given that at least one of these should have been a mergefrom, it was not unreasonable to think this was all misapplied (or, especially given the date, a joke). You might want to revisit and try to capture why you thought this a good idea, on the talk page?

Also, I'm surprised that, added on that same day, the aka names "Devil's Plague or Bird's Nest Plant" have remained. While I can find them on the web, if you could add a couple lines to the trivia section that mentions the reasons for those names I think it would help.

Acacia manguim/Acacia mangium[edit]

How do we know that the two are equivalent (thus the redirect)?. I found the spelling "manguim" in a book index

Missing species[edit]

G'day,

Sure, I'll create your template now. One thing to bear in mind is that like {{missing article}}, this template will be very large, and I have found that using subst: on a large listing of these fails, and rendering them without subst takes a very long time and can fail as well. See Wikipedia:List of missing journals/DOAJ for a failed attempt at using my template on a long listing; you may need to view the history as the article itself wont load. Anyway, caveats aside, I'll build the template and you can find what works for you. John Vandenberg 23:45, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

{{missing species}} is now working as best I can tell. There are a few things that can be done to optimise it, but I would like to see how/where you intend to use it before going overboard. Let me know on the template talk page if there are any bugs. John Vandenberg 00:40, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

Anadenanthera peregrina var. falcata[edit]

Hi!

I'm working on making a taxobox range map for this tree, but I'm not exactly sure about what to put for the range. Would you say that the Brazilian states that you mentioned in the article would suffice for the approximate global range map in the Taxobox, or do you think the map would need to include more area?Dcarlson 17:37, 24 April 2007 (UTC)

Clades versus Taxa[edit]

Articles that are about clades in the APG II system probably should not be assessed to need taxoboxes. Most of them state obviously at the beginning that this is the case, "In the APG II system (2003) for the classification of flowering plants, the name asterids refers to a clade (a monophyletic group)." You can also check this article: APG II system, although there are cases where the name is both a formal taxon, which would merit a taxobox, and a clade.

Leaf[edit]

Ferns do not have cotyledons, but they have true leaves. --EncycloPetey 23:10, 15 September 2007 (UTC)

I do not understand what you are trying to say. Ferns have leaves; you can see them yes? Ferns do not have cotyledons. If you can provide evidence that ferns have cotyledons, please cite a source. Every source you gave me says that cotyledons are found in seed plants, and ferns are not seed plants. --EncycloPetey 18:49, 22 September 2007 (UTC)
This search finds journal articles discussing "true leaves" in ferns. The UC Davis website is wrong. --EncycloPetey 18:55, 22 September 2007 (UTC)

Actually, the term can be and is used meaningfully with ferns. Vascular plants have true leaves because the leaves contain vascular tissue, the leaf blade is divided into tissue layers, and the epidermis is penetrated by stomatal openings. Bryophytes lack vascular tissues, internal differentiation, and have no stomata on their "leaves". Therefore morphologists say that bryophyte leaves are not "true leaves". --EncycloPetey 22:01, 22 September 2007 (UTC) (PS - my degree and graduate research were in the field of comparative and evolutionary botany) —Preceding unsigned comment added by EncycloPetey (talkcontribs) 22:02, 22 September 2007 (UTC)

However, it appears to have more spellings with the "n" rather than without, and may have to be investigated. --KP Botany (talk) 07:27, 28 December 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia:WikiProject Missing encyclopedic articles/List of thinkers on education[edit]

I see you created this list a while ago. I am going to go and check the blue links and if they are all clear then I will remove them from the list (hopefully you do not mind). Seeing as you haven't been on Wikipedia on a while (editing) I guess it wont matter anyway, but I thought I let you know just to be safe. Cheers!Calaka (talk) 04:33, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

Ruellia neesiana[edit]

Would you please review this article as it confuses two different plants. The name Ruellia neesiana has been used, at least, two times for different plants:

  • Asystasia neesiana (Wall.) Nees, 1832. is an Asian species. The name is based on Ruellia neesiana Wall. (1831).

The South American species is tricky as it might not have a legitime name. All the names used for this plant seems illegitime or invalid. I'll try to find a name for it.

  • Ruellia pilosa Vell. (illegitime name)
  • Dipteracanthus neesianus Nees (maybe a illegitime name)
  • Ruellia neesiana Lindau (illegitime name)
  • Neowedia neesiana Mart. ex Nees (invalid)

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

Latin American 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Latin America/The 10,000 Challenge ‎ has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge and Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like Brazil, Mexico, Peru and Argentina etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. At some stage we hope to run some contests to benefit Latin American content, a destubathon perhaps, aimed at reducing the stub count would be a good place to start, based on the current Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon. If you would like to see this happening for Latin America, and see potential in this attracting more interest and editors for the country/countries you work on please sign up and being contributing to the challenge! This is a way we can target every country of Latin America, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant!♦ --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 00:49, 27 October 2016 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of White lily[edit]

Hello RCP,

I wanted to let you know that I just tagged White lily for deletion, because it seems to be promotional, rather than an encyclopedia article.

If you feel that the article shouldn't be deleted and want more time to work on it, you can contest this deletion, but please don't remove the speedy deletion tag from the top.

You can leave a note on my talk page if you have questions.
