The papers contained in this volume of Acta Horticulturae are those presented at the Second International Symposium on the Postharvest Physiology of Cut Flowers.
The manuscripts were not edited by the convenors and are therefore printed in exactly the form in which they were received.
We would like to take this opportunity of thanking those who contributed to the success of the Symposium, notably the participants themselves, particularly those who presented papers and those who contributed to the final discussion session.
We hope that the draft "Recommendations for Standardized Vase Life Evaluations" at the end of this volume, which summarizes this discussion, will generate further discussion on this important issue.
In addition, thanks should be recorded to the faculty and staff of the Department of Environmental Horticulture for hospitably sharing their facilities with the Symposium, and to the staff of the Center for Conferences and Campus Services, who assisted in domestic arrangements for the Symposium.
