SYSTEMATIC REVISION OF CYATHEACEAE IN MALAYSIAN BORNEO.

Project summary:

A taxonomic revision on Cyatheaceae, the scaly tree ferns, have never been conducted in Bornean region, and Malaysia as a country. The molecular study and phylogenetic relationships are also currently unexplored for Malaysian Borneo. According to Tryon & Gastony (1975), Cyatheaceae family shows a high degree of endemism. In Malaysian Borneo, Sabah and Sarawak, it is expected that more than 10 species are endemic to the region. A treatment to this family should be conducted, and probability to describe new species is highly potential.
