Abstract

Summary accounts are presented of four plant collecting trips jointly undertaken by staff and students of Bangkok Forest Herbarium, National Park, Wildlife and Plant Conservation Department Thailand, the Herbarium, Botany School, Trinity College Dublin and the Herbarium, Royal Botanic Gardens Kew in 1995, 1996, 1998 and 2002. The most commonly collected families on general collecting trips were, in decreasing order of frequency, Rubiaceae, Euphorbiaceae, Leguminosae, Moraceae, Vitaceae and Acanthaceae. A map shows that these collecting trips have covered a wide
geographical range - especially so when added to data for trips undertaken in 1990 and 1993. However, there are still areas of Thailand that remain highly undercollected.
