In the Flora of Thailand series the first part of the Thai Euphorbiaceae
was published (vol. 8, part 1) (see http://www.dnp.go.th/Botany/bkf.htm).
It has become a nicely illustrated appealing book. The second and last part
is expected in the spring of 2006.
It treats the general family characters, a key to the genera and the genera
A-F (Acalypha to Flueggea). The family is treated in the old broad sense,
thus inclusive of the Pandaceae, Putrajivaceae, and the bi-ovulate
subfamilies. The treatments are made by a large team, half of them Thai,
half of them international. Many drawings and photos are added to help
identifying the species.
The website for the Thai Euphorbiaceae was also renewed:
http://www.nationaalherbarium.nl/thaieuph. This site also includes the
other genera as far as they are finished and also shows more plates.
