|Abstract||Flora of Thailand. The Thai National Research Council is supporting a project on the Flora of Thailand, as a result of the negotiation made by Mr. Tem Smitinand, Curator of the Forest Herbarium, Royal Forest Department, Bangkok, with botanists of European herbaria, namely the Botanical Museum of the University of Copenhagen, the Rijksherbarium, Leyden, the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, the Royal Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh, and the National Museum of Natural History, Paris.|
The first meeting was held at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, England, in 1965, and it has been decided that to ensure its possibility botanists interested in the Tropical botany should be approached by botanists presented at this meeting. The progress on this new project is slow but not at all discourageous, as the Thai National Research Council has the possibility to print the flora by its own off-set press. The Dutch Government through the Ministry of International Kelp has been: approached, and a post for a botanist working for the Flora of Thailand has been approved. In the meantime application for technical assistance has been presented to the Unesco Southeast Asian Science Cooperation Office, Bangkok, with the hope that an aid will be granted during the fiscal year 1968-1969.
