Transcript of Inventory and Assessment of Rubiaceae in Mt. Malinao, Albay

Inventory and Assessment of Rubiaceae in Mt. Malinao, Albay
Introduction
Philippine Biodiversity
More than 65 % of the 10,000+ species of plants are endemic (Goldman, 2010)

A large part of its terrain is mountainous, with fertile soils and spectacular landscape (Lucas et al., 2010)

Only 188,000 hectares of the 30 million hectares of the Philippines remain as forests (Forestry Master, 1990)
Rubiaceae
Fourth largest family of angiosperms worldwide;
660 genera with 13,000 species

Economic importance: crops like
coffee
,
medicine
, and
ornamentals
(Robbrecht, 1988; Alejandro and Liede, 2003)
Rubiaceae in the Philippines
Comprised of 80 genera, which is around 12% of the Rubiaceae worldwide

Three subfamilies are: Cinchonoideae, Ixoroideae, and Rubioideae (Bremer, 1996)
Mount Malinao

Mt. Malinao is the second of the “Magayon trio”

The mountain has an elevation 1,548 meters above sea level and a base diameter of 22.5 kilometers

Budget Allocation
NO research has been conducted in Mt. Malinao regarding Rubiaceae
The study will:

1. Improve the understanding of Philippine Rubiaceae and the Philippine Flora

2. Contribute to the Taxonomy and Systematics of Rubiaceae

3. Help conserve threatened and endangered species of Rubiaceae before they become extinct
General Objective

To inventory, assess, and conserve rare, endangered, economically important and novel Rubiaceae species found in Mount Malinao, Albay

Specific Objectives
Specifically aims to:

1. Identify the Rubiaceae found in Mt. Malinao

2. Conduct molecular and phylogenetic studies of problematic or complex Rubiaceae taxa collected in the area

3. Provide descriptions and botanical illustrations of undetermined Rubiaceae as well as new species
Specimens of Rubiaceae collected from Mt. Malinao

Identification, through phylogenetic study and comparison, and preservation of specimens

Molecular study will only be conducted if there will be problematic or interesting species in the site
Posoqueria latifolia
or Needle-flower Tree from the
Subfamily Cinchoinoideae
Ixora coccinea
or Santan from the
Subfamily Ixoroideae
Pentas lanceolata
or Egyptian Star Cluster from the
Subfamily Rubioideae
