For Contributors


Please contribute to Symphytos! We welcome anything relevant - short articles, news items, outreach pieces, research and publication updates, collection descriptions, natural history observations, meeting announcements and reports, photos, etc. Contributions may be edited for brevity, grammar or style.

Given the web medium, the nature of this site's material, and our own hectic schedules, we would greatly appreciate electronic communication and submission whenever possible. Please send items, including photos (.jpg or .gif files), as email attachments to:

If you must send hardcopy, mail to:

Dr. Sylvio Codella
Department of Biological Sciences
Kean University
C-113 Science Building
1000 Morris Avenue
Union, New Jersey 07083 USA

If a hardcopy submission is at all lengthy, please include a floppy with the file written in a common word-processing program (Microsoft Word is preferred).

When submitting photos, don't forget to include background information: biology, taxonomy, location, photographer's name. If your picture(s) aren't in electronic form, and you can't get it done easily, we would be happy to scan them for you. Just mail duplicates of your slides or prints (please don't send your precious originals!) to Chip at the address above.

If you would like to be included in the Directory, please send us your name, address, phone, email address, and website url, as well as a brief description of your biological interests.

Have an idea that doesn't seem to fit our mold? Please contact us; we'd be happy to discuss it.
