Check Lists of Indonesian Trees under editorship of Dr. T.C. WHITMORE (OXF) and Dr. I.G.M. TANTRA (Forest Dept., Bali). In April 1986 the list for Sumatra was ready to be printed. The lists for Celebes and Nusa Tenggara were in the typing stage. Manuscripts for the Moluccas, Borneo and New Guinea are virtually complete. The project has prematurely ended, however, due to a drop of 40% in the Indonesian development budget. It is to be hoped that this is temporarily so and that the pieces can be picked up again in the future.
