Flora of Thailand
Title: Flora of Thailand
Creator: National Park, Wildlife and Plant Conservation Department <Bangkok> / Forest Herbarium (BKF)
Abstract: The study of the Flora of Thailand, with its estimated 10,000 vascular plants species, has been gathering momentum in the last few years and has now reached a well-advanced stage. The Flora of Thailand Project, whose aim is to produce a complete floristic treatment of the entire vascular flora, really started to take off the ground around 1958 with the Thai-Danish, Thai-Dutch and Thai-Japanese botanical expeditions. The publication of the 'Flora of Thailand' with T. Smitinand (after his death with T. Santisuk) and K. Larsen as editors commenced in 1970 and is ongoing. Nine volumes (in 24 parts) of the Flora have now been published. The success of the Flora of Thailand Project is partly due to a very efficient international collaboration and regularly meeting every four years to plan the work ahead for the Flora. The last meeting, which was the 13rd of the series, was held in 2005 in Dublin. [Information of the supplier]
