Dear Dr. Gerrick:

I recommend to you an excellent poster titled "Indian Corn of the
Americas" that is published by The Haworth Press, Inc., 10 Alice Street,
Binghamton, NY 13904-1580. Their Fax # is (toll-free: 800-895-0582; tel:
800-HAWORTH. It has excellent pictorial representation of diversity in
corn. I don't see teosinte and tripsacum there, but everything else is
there. You may wish to consult with Dr. Coe or Dr. Neuffer, who have
numerous photographs in "Mutants of Maize."

The price of the poster was $30 (I paid about $250 for the frame!).

Hope this would help a little.

Best regards,
