About this book

This volume deals with the family Compositae (Asteraceae), which is one of the largest families of flowering plants, with approximately 24,000 known species and an estimated total of as many as 30,000. One hundred and seven genera with 240 species are enumerated in Thailand and some of them are endemic to the country. Many introduced species are newly recognised to the flora in the tribes Heliantheae, Eupatorieae and Senecioneae. Some of them are cultivated as garden ornamentals and others have medicinal uses.
