The journal Arnaldoa is published by the Herbario Antenor Orrego (HAO) in the Museo de Historia Natural of the Universidad Privada Antenor Orrego (UPAO), Trujillo, Peru. The publication was founded by Dr. Abundio Sagástegui Alva, former Director of the Museo and founder of the HAO Herbarium. The journal's name commerates the striking northern Peruvian genus Arnaldoa (sunflower or Asteraceae family), pictured to the left, and honors the distinguished botanist for which the plant was originally named, Dr. Arnaldo López Miranda, Emeritis Professor at the Universidad Nacional de La Libertad. Dr. López passed away in Trujillo, 8 May 2010.

The first number was published in June 1991 and was originally initiated as an outlet for publishing new flowering plant species, floristic inventories and research results from botanical investigations in Andean South America, especially Peru. The journal continues to focuses on these topics, but has expanded to include articles from a wide variety of scientific disciplines, including algology, biodiversity studies, conservation, plant ecology, plant phytochemistry, plant physiology, amongst others. Volume one (1) contained four (4) numbers and all subsequent volumns contain two (2) numbers each.

Fieldiana: Botany

Fieldiana is published by The Field Museum in four series: Anthropology, Botany, Geology, and Zoology. The Flora of Peru Series was initiated in Fieldiana in 1936 and has resulted in published treatments for over 75% of the Peruvian flora in volumes numbering nearly 9,500 pages. Most spermatophyte family treatments were contributed by J. Francis Macbride in Volume 13, with a series of parts and numbers. The exceptions to this in the Spermatophytes are the families Orchidaceae in Volumes 30 and 33 and the Asteraceae, published by tribe in the New Series. The index for Spermatophytes was adapted from that by Douglas C. Daly, [Brittonia 32(4): 1980, pp. 548-550]. Family treatments for Peruvian Pteridophytes were published in Fieldiana: Botany by Rolla M. Tryon and Robert G. Stolze (Volumes 20, 22, 27, 29, 32, and 34). Indices are provided to assist in locating the Flora of Peru volume for a particular family or, in the case of the Pteridophytes, genera of plants.
