We welcome you to the 11th Flora Malesiana Symposium.

We are most pleased to be hosting the 11th Flora Malesiana Symposium (FM11) at Universiti Brunei Darussalam on 30th June to 5th July 2019.

The major themes that will be covered in FM11 are:

Taxonomy: taxonomic studies are pivotal in understanding the incredible plant diversity of South East Asia. FM11 welcomes all speakers reporting new findings on taxonomy and classification related to the mega diversity of the Malay region.

Ecology: plant ecology has an important role in comprehend plants interaction, distribution and contribute on a comprehensive understanding of plants evolutionary history. The symposium welcomes speakers who wish to highlight new discoveries which promote the comprehension of the South East Asia plant ecology and distribution.

Conservation: South East Asia faces the highest deforestation rate among all tropical regions. Speakers who are focused on how classification, taxonomic, and ecological studies have had a tangible effect on plant conservation are most welcome.

We also welcome talks outside the main themes of the symposium such as (but not limited to): evolutionary biology, e-Taxonomy, systematics, environmental education.

Brunei Darussalam is a superb location for FM11. Universiti Brunei Darussalam, the country’s national university, has a dynamic research environment with many international collaborations, all of which have contributed to the understanding of the country’s great plant diversity. The capital of Brunei Darussalam, Bandar Seri Begawan, is an extremely welcoming and pleasant city where FM11 delegates will enjoy the beauty of its riverfront, the excellent local cuisine, and its immediate surrounding forest and wildlife. Brunei, as the rest of Borneo and much of Southeast Asia, is home to a wide range of human cultures and to some of the most biodiverse forests in the world. We hope the FM11 delegates will be exposed to some of its stunning diversity, as well as to the conservation issues faced here and elsewhere in the tropics. We are looking forward to meeting you at FM11 2019. Selamat Datang!

– FM11 Local Organizing Committee
