Systematic studies of Bornean Zingiberaceae I. Amomum in Lambir Hills, Sarawak

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  01 March 1998

Abstract

Twelve species of Amomum (Zingiberaceae) are reported from Lambir Hills, Sarawak, with systematic and ecological notes based on field observations for more than one year. Five species, Amomum angustipetalum, A. bilabiatum, A. calyptratum, A. durum and A. somniculosum, are described as new to science. A key to all species of Amomum in Borneo is provided. The first report of andromonoecy and sexual dimorphism of inflorescence in Zingiberaceae is given for A. polycarpum.
