A checklist of the flora of Brunei Darussalam — A collaborative agreement between the Forestry Department of Brunei Darussalam (BRUN) and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, was signed on 30 March, 1990. Preliminary work on the Project, however, began in June, 1989, with field work in Brunei carried out jointly by the staff of BRUN and K. In August, 1989, a systematic search began at K for all the Brunei specimens filed there and a computerized data base was started to record the label-data. Mr. L.L. FORMAN (K) is co-ordinator of the Project, while Dr. J. DRANSFIELD is responsible for the liaison with BRUN. In addition three students are employed by K. In succession each spends one year assisting with building up the database and general processing of the material.
