Rattans of Myanmar

Andrew Henderson and I have started working on another book together (see Finally, It's A Book). This one, entitled Rattans of Myanmar, is a collaborative effort between the Myanmar Ministry of Environmental Conservation and Forestry (MOECAF), the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) Myanmar Program, and The New York Botanical Garden. It covers 39 local rattan species and will be published in Myanmar language (and perhaps English?). Image above shows the spread for Calamus hukaungensis Henderson (see Calamus hukaungensis) from the InDesign file (.indb) for the book. [NOTE: I am (again) doing the design and layout for the volume, which is why the species treatments look similar to the Greater Mekong book ].


A Palm, Two Botanists With Cameras

The palm is Nenga banaensis (Magalon) Burret, or "cây cau rung" as it's known in central Vietnam. The first botanist is Dr. Andrew Henderson (see An Unusual Rattan and Pressing Plectocomiopsis), a palm specialist in the Institute of Systematic Botany of The New York Botanical Garden. The second botanist is Mr. Biu Van Thanh (see Kon Tum and Phong Dien), a doctoral student at the Vietnamese Institute of Ecology and Biological Resources (IEBR) in Hanoi.  [NOTE: I like their hats.]
