  Dr. Pramote Triboun gave a talk entitled The Gesneriaceae in Thailand and Its Habitat to staff and students of GCCC, Guilin Botanical Garden and Guangxi Institute of Botany (Fig.3, 4). He introduced the biodiversity of Thailand Gesneriaceae and the suitable habitats in great details, especially Paraboea. This genus has the richest biodiversity in Thailand Gesneriaceae (Dr. Pramote Triboun once published 20 new taxa in a paper!) (Fig. 5, 6, 7). His talking help us to have better sense of the comparison of Gesneriaceae from Thailand (Indochina Peninsula) and Gesneriaceae from Southwest China.

  Dr. Pramote Triboun said few researchers pay attention to Gesneriaceae except for taxonomists who happen to be the researchers on Gesneriaceae. He hoped that the researchers from Thailand can built a/some similar organizations to conserve Thailand Gesneriaceae.
