Abstract

This research is aimed to provide a preliminary checklist of Pandanaceae species available in UNIMAS campus. This checklist can serve as the baseline data for further studies of the same interest. Pandanaceae family is prominent for environmental classification due to their peculiar and readily recognized morphology. They are also significant as microhabitats and insect-pandan associations. Five species were collected in UNIMAS arboretum. They were identified and described according to Stone (1993). Among the species, four species were from genus Pandanus and another one from genus Benstonea. Only 2 species were identified which were P. yvanii Solms and B. affinis (Kurz) Callm. & Buerki respectively. The most distinguishable characters to identify the genera would be the flower and fruit but it is often problematic to identify the species within the genera. It is expected that more species could be found in the study area if it is widened and more data for species delimitation can be obtained if the flowers or fruits of the individual are present.
