Acta Mycologica Sinica. In 1982 this new journal was started reporting on pure and applied mycological research in China. Articles contain also descriptions of new taxa. The Editorial Board is P.O.B. 2714, Beijing. It is printed by Academia Sinica Printers. An annotated list of the flora of Kairiru Island has been prepared by Br. O. W. Borrell (MELU) and has been offered for publication to the Botany Bulletin, Lae. It is to be hoped that in view of the difficult financial circumstances of LAE funds can be found to have it published.
