New grant from the Carlsberg foundation ensures registration of Thailand’s flora

2016.05.24Since the establishment of the Botanical Institute at Aarhus University (now metamorphosed into Ecoinformatics and Biodiversity of Bioscience) in 1963, the exploration of the Thai flora has been a very important component of the research agenda. Aarhus University has played a key factor in the Flora of Thailand project, which is a long term project describing all of the amazing number of 11.000 vascular plants in Thailand. The Flora of Thailand project is just over half finished and a with new donation of 15 mill DKK from the Carlsberg foundation is it now possible to continue fieldwork, training and exchange of researchers between Thailand and Aarhus University, and to publish the remaining parts of the Flora of Thailand. The project is organized by the Royal Forest Herbarium of the Thai National Park Services, and involves a large number of taxonomists in various Thai and international universities and research institutions, especially the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, England, Edinburgh Botanical garden, Scotland, Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland, the National museum of France in Paris, Munich University, and Copenhagen University. During the project, many Thai students and botanists have trained at Aarhus University and this will continue thanks to the new economical donation.
