4 families, 75 genera, and 669 species, primarily the rose family, Rosaceae. Volume 9 has made significant progress since October. All manuscripts (100% of species) have gone through regional review, but five have yet to be returned by the authors with their corrections (all being actively worked on by authors); 89% of manuscripts (53% spp.) have gone through specialist review (bibliographic, nomenclature, etc.), and all but two of these are styled and indexed; the low percentage of species is due to the fact that a large share of species is held in Rosa and Crataegus, which are currently being prepared for specialist review. Most of the Rosaceae subfamilial and tribal descriptions, with keys to genera, have been corrected and are in special editing or beyond. A large number of manuscripts have also been released to FNA Central for final editing and galley preparation. The remaining families in Volume 9-Crossosomataceae, Picramniaceae, and Staphyleaceae-are now with FNA Central and are ready to go to galleys. Nearly all illustrations in the volume have been done by artist Marj Leggitt, including the frontispiece which illustrates Crataegus okanaganensis, a red-fruited plant; additionally, John Myers illustrated species of Rosa and Barbara Alongi prepared those for the three genera of Crossosomataceae.
