Arboretum Wespelaar is momenteel gesloten voor het winterseizoen. Vanaf zondag 4 april verwelkomen we jullie graag terug om de Magnolia's in bloei te komen bewonderen!
Koen Camelbeke, Director of Arboretum Wespelaar, is part of the "species group" of the Maple Society. They have completed a challenge successfully: the list of accepted names in the genus Acer is now finished and has been published in the latest Newsletter and on the Maple Society website, as well as on our website (direct link) on our "Publications and downloads" page. The group members of course remain open to comments and improvements to the list. As Koen Camelbeke mentions in his article, this will never be a static document, so regular updates will be published whenever needed.
The Red List of Acer (revised and extended) is now available on the BGCI website. This Red List gives the conservation status of all 158 maple or Acer species. The report reveals that 1 in 5 species of Acer are threatened with extinction in the wild. The Foreword is written by Koen Camelbeke, director of Arboretum Wespelaar. Arboretum Wespelaar, which has a big collection of maples and also focuses on red-listed tree species, was one of the participating institutions in the creation of this red list. The arboretum holds a large collection of Acer images and high resolution scans by Jan De Langhe (By Jan De Langhe, dendrologist at Ghent University Botanical Garden, in collaboration with Arboretum Wespelaar), which were used in this publication.
