In April 1973, Dr. B.C. Stone of Kuala Lumpur participated in the Ceylon Flora project under the aegis of the Botanic Gardens, Peradeniya, and the Smithsonian Institution. A month’s stay was devoted primarily to the collecting and preparation of a draft manuscript on the Pandanaceae of Ceylon, and notes toward a similar draft for the Rutaceae. Visits to the Lucknow Botanic Gardens and the Smithsonian Office in New Delhi formed part of the trip. Dr. A.J. Kostermans of Bogor conducted exploration work in the first half of 1973. His material is still being processed; this done, we hope to give a complete account in the next issue.
