The Morphology, Anatomy, Biology and Classification of Peninsular Malaysian Bamboos is an account of the variation in structure and habits of bamboos which bear on their botanical classification.
Reviews of the general classification and morphology of bambusoid grasses, flowering phenomena among woody bamboos and evolutionary perspectives appear in the first part of the book. The account provides detailed discussions on the morphology and growth architecture of bamboos in the Asiatic and tropical genera Bambusa, Chimonobambusa, Dendrocalamus, Dinochloa, Kinabaluchloa, Maclurochloa, Melocanna, Phyllostachys, Racemobambos, Schizostachyum, Soejatmia and Thyrsostachys, and summaries of the vegetative reproduction, invasive behaviour and flowering habits of some of these bamboos. The contribution of recent evidence from morphology and anatomy towards the subtribal and generic classification of bamboos is also reviewed.
