Dear Georgina, dear Karen,

this is to inform you (again) that my colleague Dr. Joerg Ochsmann (who is
on vacations until October 3) will attend the meeting(s) in Australia. He
would like to make a contribution to the Economic Botany Standard
TDWG-subgroup, and give an oral presentation to the TDWG meeting. He will
approach you upon return from vacations.

Please consider his participation in the meetings.

With best regards, yours,

Helmut Knuepffer
