This issue of the Proceedings is dedicated to Professor John D. Dodd on the occasion of his 65th birthday. During his long and distinguished career at Iowa State University, Professor Dodd has exemplified the very best qualities of teaching and academic research in the botanical sciences. He finds genuine and unfailing fascination in his chosen field and one senses that his fondest desire is to elevate all of his students to his own perspective so that they might share the same rewards he finds in discovery of facts and comprehension of principles. Although few can match his intellectual capacity and catholic interests, he has provided many beginning students with a unique insight into the fundamentals of biology and inspired many of the graduate students fortunate enough to work with him to pursue fundamental research, particularly in unconventional or neglected areas.
