Description

This is a list of specimens of Hymenophyllaceae collected in Seram and Ambon from 1983 to 1986. The first two sets of specimens of this family are kept in TI and BO; the third more or less incomplete set will be in L, with a few more duplicates to be distributed to other herbaria. In tatal, 47 species of the Hymenophyllaceae are recorded. Seram has an area of about 17,000 km2 with many mountain peaks reaching 2,000 to 3,000 m elevation, the highest being 3019 m tall. When the collections were made in 1980s, most mountainous areas were still natural and undeveloped, covered mostly with primary forests. Mountains over 1500 m elevation are in a cloud zone of mossy forests where filmy ferns prefer to grow. For the species enumerated here, the habitat of each species is summarized and edited from the field notes on the collection labels. There are widespread calcareous on Seram Island, and most collections are from such areas. Ambon is a much smaller island located southwest of Seram. The flora of Ambon had been relatively better known than Seram’s because of the epoch-making pre-Linnean work of G. E. Rumphius, Herbarium Amboinense. However, the island is now well populated and has been deforested. A small number of Hymenophyllaceae were collected on Ambon. On Seram Island, no particular species of filmy fern grow obligatory in limestone areas. For the epiphytic species, calcareous habitats appear to be of less concern. The epipetric species cited in the following list usually grow on very wet, often moss-covered limestone as facultative calcareous species.

Project Data

The pteridophyte flora of Seram and Ambon was revised by Kato (1990a), who has continuously contributed to this topic based on his taxonomic studies in identifying our collections. About 700 species of pteridophytes were collected from area. The collection lists of pteridophytes were already published by M. Kato and his collabotators (Kato 1988, 1989a, 1989b, 1990b, 1992, 1994, 1996, 1997, 2007, Kato and Kramer 1990, Kato and Parris 1992, Kato and Price 1990).

Title Taxonomic studies of pteridophytes of Ambon and Seram (Moluccas) collected on Indonesian-Japanese botanical expeditions 1983–1986
Funding The Overseas Research Programme from the Ministry of Education, Science and Culture, Japan (at that time)
Study Area Description Ambon and Seram islands, the Moluccas, Indonesia. The collection route map for the 1983 trip is given in Kato et al. (1984), pp. 150–151. The collection sites on Seram Island are given in Kato (1990a).
Design Description The flora of Seram and Ambon islands, the Moluccas, covering bryophytes, pteridophytes and seed plants, was investigated during field expeditions in 1983, 1984–85, and 1986. Because the Moluccan islands, in particular Seram, have been explored very sparsely, the expeditions aimed to make general collections of the land plants in the area. More than 11,000 field numbers of vascular plant and 5,000 bryophyte specimens were collected, mainly from east, central and west Seram (Kato 1990a). Kato (1990a) provided an overview of the fern flora of Seram and implied that well over 700 species of pteridophytes occur on the island, based on the collection of nearly 700 species on only three explorations.

Sampling Methods

The pteridophyte flora of Ambon and Seram (Ceram) was comprehensively explored in the 1980s and was studied by M. Kato and his colleagues during 1985 and 2007. Most of the pteridophyte collections were already studied, but the specimens of Hymenophyllaceae remained unprocessed. After identification of the specimens by the authors following the classification system by Ebihara et al. (2006), seven genera and 47 species are here recorded. The diversity of species is equivalent to nearly half of all species in Malesia, where 108 species have now been identified and recorded (K. Iwatsuki & A. Ebihara, in preparation). The field research was organized as a joint survey by the Botanical Gardens, the University of Tokyo, and Herbarium Bogoriense, LIPI. Along with the work on the Hymenophyllaceae for Flora Malesiana, this taxonomically interesting family has been revised and the taxonomy of the species has been determined, including the identification of the collections cited here. A modern system including information based on molecular systematics was proposed by Ebihara et al. (2006), although further study is continuing. This list of Ambon and Seram species is arranged according to the system proposed there, except for the order of the infrageneric taxa.

Study Extent Pteridophytes specimens including those of Hymenophyllaceae were collected in Seram and Ambon islands on the expeditions 1983–1986.
Quality Control For most of the specimens, the coordinate was supplied by the authors based on the itinerary of field trips.
