The Philippine Rubiaceae Genera

DELTA: Rubiaceae of the Philippines

From 10/2001 to 02/2005

Principal Investigator: Sigrid Liede-Schumann
Staff: Grecebio Jonathan D. Alejandro

The development of an illustrated interactive key for all the Rubiaceae genera of the Philippines provides a welcome tool for all concerned with forest conservation, management and utilization to identify easily the main components of the patch of forest under investigation and obtain further information on the species involved. The most recent enumeration of Philippine Rubiaceae genera is nearly eighty years old (Merrill, 1923) and out of date in many respects. Furthermore, the dearth of generic descriptions essential to the understanding of Rubiaceae in the Philippines prompted us establish an automated databank for Philippine Rubiaceae genera under the DELTA system.
