Flora Malesiana

Flora Malesiana (FM) is an international flora project aiming to name, describe and inventory the complete vascular plant flora of Malesia, the region including Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Brunei Darussalam, the Philippines, Timor-Leste and Papua New Guinea. The Malesian biodiversity hotspot harbours a staggering vascular plant diversity estimated at more than 45,000 species. Published Flora Malesiana volumes, CD-ROMs and other output cover about 29% of the species in Malesia.
