To complement the ‘Checklist of the Araceae of Malesia, Australia and the Tropical Western Pacific region’, a bibliography has been prepared as a basis for further work on the aroids of these areas. It is based on, but much extended from, an unpublished bibliography of Malesian Araceae assembled by the late Prof. Dr. C.G.G.J. van Steenis. It includes the ‘core’ taxonomic literature, i.e. that in which new nomenclature is introduced, and, in addition, numerous items appear which enumerate species, report expedition results, describe aspects of aroid biology, deal with nomenclatural matters etc. Flora accounts and extensive revisions of genera occurring in the region have been included for neighbouring areas. Those papers in which Araceae appear as but a part written by the author(s) of the whole have been cited with full pagination. The extensive archaeological/ethnological, agricultural, phytopathological and biotechnological literature relating to Taro – Colocasia esculenta (L.) Schott – has been largely omitted as it is felt that this is relevant to more specialized interest-groups than the checklist and this bibliography are aimed at serving. 1,264 items are listed.
