Abstract


Zingiber zerumbet (L.) J.E. Smith, Z. amaricans BL, Z. aromaticum Val., and Z. littorale Val., which Backer & Bakhuizen v.d. Brink treated as a single species named Z. zerumbet, have been found to be chemically and palynologically distinct. This vindicates the species formulation made by Valeton, in which they were distinguished as four separate species.
