        Dear Taxacomers,

        I am a postgraduate student from the Department of Biological
Sciences The National University of Singapore (DBS).  For my MSc
research, I am studying the molecular systematics of the genus Licuala
under the supervision of Assoc. Prof.  Hugh Tan (DBS) and Dr. Saw Leng
Guan from Forest Research Institute Malaysia (FRIM).

        It would be greatly appreciated if fresh material of any Licuala
species could be sent to us and we would be most glad to reimburse for

        Besides this, any in situ observations on the genus with regards
to its phenology, dispersal and population variants would be very
helpful and much appreciated.

        Many thanks in advance and my apologies for cross posting!
