Here's the first examples of one of SEANSRF's new projects to produce Bi-lingual Thai Nepenthes species descriptions pages with all the correct taxonomic information and botanical terminology, for the first time allowing non-English speaking Thai people to more easily observe & understand the taxonomic differences of the thorelii-aggregate species. Reaching local consensus regarding these pyrophytic, IC species is an important step towards being able to make any conservation progress.
We hope to finish all 14 of the Thai species descriptions later this year. These can be a little difficult to read against the photo backgrounds (but all are also available in zoom-able PDF format). These were mainly produced to catch people's interest as they passed by during the NAC2015 exhibition...plain text versions will be made available soon as well. We have done 4 species so far and I will post them 'publicly' and for free use! Please DO credit the 'SE Asian Nepenthes Study & Research Foundation' if you use them!
