On the cover: Large plants of Cyphostemma currorii never fail to impress, whether you have seen one or a hundred. This photogenic pair can be seen, from a greater distance, later in this issue. The fitness of sprightly photographer Todd Masilko is to be credited for his ability to hold the camera steady following an arduous climb that not all were able to manage. Damage to many plants was seen during the trek to the top; even wellarmed Euphorbiaare not immune where elephants are concerned. Should plants survive the threat from animals, gravity often takes its toll with large specimens, which simply fall over, or collapse under their own weight when full of water. It is hoped the giants pictured here will remain healthy for many years to come
