The genus Monstera, as here interpreted, comprises 22 species and 3 varieties of scandent epiphytes, including some of the most magnificent and conspicuous climbers of the neotropics, easily recognized by their huge, perforated leaves. Though common and abundant in the wild, Monstera species are poorly represented in herbaria, principally because the large fleshy parts are too big for plant presses, difficult to dry, and because the plants usually flower out of reach.
The study A REVISION OF MONSTERA of MICHAEL MADISON had its genesis in an unsuccessful attempt to identify some Mexican monsteras, which revealed the lack of a useful monograph of the genus and the chaotic application of names to specimens in herbaria. Although Monstera was monographed by Engler and Krause in 1908, neither author was able to study the plants in the wild and their treatment reflects the inadequacy of herbarium specimens in studies of Araceae. The revision here presented is based on 18 months of field work in Central and South America, encompassing study of about 400 populations representing 17 species. In addition, over 3000 herbarium specimens were examined.
