The genetic relations of Musa species from Mount Jaya, New Guinea, and a reappraisal of the sections of Musa (Musaceae) [Page 97 - 111]
Molecular analysis using amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) confirms the status of Musa hanksii F. Muell. as a subspecies of M. acuminata Colla and shows M. johnsii Argent to be genetically more similar to the Australian M. jackeyi W. Hill than to M. lolodensis Cheesman from New Guinea.  In addition, AFLP analysis supports only two sections as genetically distinct, namely Sect. Musa (including Sect. Rhodochlamys) and Sect. Callimusa (including Sect. Australimusa). No material for Sect. Igentimusa was available for study. However, for practical purposes of grouping banana species, four informal groups are recognised - the 'acuminata' and 'ornata' groups within Sect. Musa. and the "coccinea" and 'textilis' groups within sect. Callimusa. A key to the sections and informal groups is provided.

Nepenthes platychila (Nepenthaceae), a new species of pitcher plant from Sarawak, Borneo [Page 263- 286]
Leaf epidermal morphology of 5 species of Grewia L. and 32 species of Microcos L. (including) their type species) were examined. Grewia and Microcos both have glandular and nonglandular trichomes. Trichome characters alone cannot be used for delimiting Grewia from Microcos or for distinguishing species within each genus.  Five epidermal characters were useful for distinguishing the two genera in Peninsular Malaysia and Borneo. Grewia species differ from Microcos species in having radiating cuticular striation of epidermal / subsidiary cells, predominantly anomocytic stomata, stomata elliptic to broadly elliptic in outline with  mean length 18.6-22.9 um and average length-width (L/W) ratios of 1.2-1.4.  Microcos species were characterised by the absence of radiating cuticular striation of epidermal subsidiary cells (except in M. tomentosa), predominantly paracytic and anisocytic stomata, stomata broadly elliptic to oblate in outline with mean length 12-16.4 um and average L/W ratios of 0.9-1.1.

Sectional placement of three Bornean species of Musa (Musaceae) based on Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphism (AFLP) [Page 327 - 341]
The traditional approach to the classification of Musa species (Musaceae) is the separation into four sections {Musa, Rhodochlamys, Callimusa and Australimusa) based on chromosome number and morphological characters. The sectional placing of Musa beccarii N.W Simmonds is still unresolved due to its unique chromosome number. The sections of two new species from Sabah, Malaysia, M. monticola (Hotta ex) Argent and M. suratii Argent, were also undetermined. This study employs Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphism (AFLP) as a molecular tool to determine the sectional placement of these three species within Musa. Eight primer combinations generated 17 genetic markers, which confirmed and M monticola in sect. Australimusa, while results show M. suratii falling between sect. Callimusa and sect Australimusa suggesting that the two sections can no longer be maintained as distinct.

The pollen grains of 20 Durio species and 5 clones of D. zibethinus were studied. Based on the exine sculpture of the pollen, the Durio species can be divided into three major groups, i.e. psilate, scabrate and verrucate. However, variation in the exine sculpture is also exhibited in D. zibethiniis, D. malaceensis and D. singaporensis. In addition, pollen size and wall thickness provide useful taxonomic evidence in distinguishing certain species. Pollen characters, however, could be used as supplementary characters in the identification of Durio species.
