Welcome to the 11th Flora Malesiana Symposium (Brunei, 2019) page.

Following the announcement at the close of the last FM Symposium, Dr. Daniele Cicuzza (representing Universiti Brunei Darussalam), proposed the hosting of FM 11 at UBD, tentatively scheduled to be held from 30th June to 6th July 2019.

The Vice Chancellor of UBD, the Dean of the Faculty of Science, and the Director of the Institute for Biodiversity and Environmental Research (IBER) is fully supportive of this proposal, and has graciously agreed to host the next FM symposium. The logistics of this upcoming symposium will be handled by IBER.

Dr. Daniele is very pleased to take on this big commitment of hosting FM and extends his warm welcome for you to join us at FM 11.


Website theme image: The Spotted Fig (Ficus puncata) is the world’s largest fig with more than 10 cm in size. It is commonly found throughout Borneo growing as a liana. As the name implies, the fig is actually spotted as shown in the picture here but lose their spots as the fruit matures. Photo taken by Mahdi Hussainmiya from the Ulu Temburong National Park.
