18th Flora of Thailand Conference
18 to 22 July 2022, SINGAPORE
Organised by Singapore Botanic Gardens, National Parks Board, Singapore
Our Guest-of-Honour for the Opening Ceremony is HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn
The Singapore Botanic Gardens, founded in 1859 and inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2015, is one of the leading botanical institutions in Southeast Asia. The Gardens’ connections with Thailand can be traced back to King Chulalongkorn’s visit to Singapore in 1871 and through Henry Murton, who was the Superintendent of Singapore Botanic Gardens from 1875 to 1880 and then Director of the Royal Gardens in Bangkok until 1882. The most famous of Singapore Botanic Gardens’ former Directors, Henry Ridley, explored the south of Thailand in 1910 and described many new species. Connections and collaborations between Thailand and Singapore continue today through joint fieldwork and taxonomic research, including writing Flora of Thailand accounts.
