TitleEen tropisch drijfzaad, Pangium edule Reinwardt (Flacourtiaceae), van het Nederlandse strand
JournalGorteria : tijdschrift voor de floristiek, de plantenoecologie en het vegetatie-onderzoek van Nederland
AbstractA seed in the collection of the Rijksherbarium from the Dutch coast (1971) appears to belong to Pangium edule. Although able to drift for a long time, it is improbable that this Malaysian seed reached the Dutch coast all the way by sea currents. Transport by man to NW. Europe is the most probable explanation for its occurrence on the Dutch coast. Import of tropical seeds and fruits particularly for decoration has increased. As a result it becomes more difficult to prove longdistance transport by sea for tropical drift-seeds found on the Dutch coast.
