The rediscovery of Dioscorea rockii Prain & Burkill, endemic to Northern Thailand
Keywords:Dioscorea rockii Prain & Burkill
AbstractDioscorea rockii Prain & Burkill was known from a single specimen from Northern Thailand collected in 1922 with immature capsules. The discovery of male plants and its underground organs renders its full description and illustrations. It is restricted to the lower montane evergreen forests between 1000 and 1700 m altitude. A preliminary conservation assessment is given. The tendency for control of sex expression in the flowers with male flowers on female plants (and vice versa) of some individuals of this species, particularly at Doi Phu Kha in Nan is noted.
