Pinus dalatensis - THÔNG ĐÀ LẠT

  • Posted on: 20 June 2017

After our team was alerted on a low-elevation occurrence in Gia Lai province of Pinus dalatensis, in 2004 a study trip was organised with the financial help from the I.D.R.I., with additional support from the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. In cooperation with the Department of Botany, Institute of Ecology and Biological Resources (Hanoi) and the Department of Ecology, Da Lat University (Lam Dong) we travelled to Dak Doa district.

Abies pseudochensiensis - Kámon Fir

  • Posted on: 16 March 2017
A distinct mistery fir that received its name when published in Acta Botanica Hungarica in 2010. The tree challenged us for many years: it all goes back to our visits to the Arboretum of Kámon (Kámoni Arborétum) in western Hungary, where there was a large tree named Abies chensiensis var. ernestii. As later turned out the name was incorrect. We continued searching for other trees of this plant.
