A USEFUL compilation, of which the first two parts have appeared, is in course of publication. It is a catalogue of all plants collected in Siam, with a full record of collectors' specimens, references to literature and synonymy, together with occasional notes by the author, who has critically examined, wherever possible, the type specimens and other specimens quoted. The local Siamese and Malay names are given. No new species are recorded, though very many of those listed have been described by the author himself in the Kew Bulletin from material supplied by recent collectors, chiefly. Dr. A. F. G. Kerr, Mrs. D. J. Collins, and members of the Siam Forest Service.
