    Abstract

    Based on literature and herbaria surveys and recent collections of plants from Pulau Tioman, a provisional checklist of seed plants is presented. A total of 650 species of seed plants, comprising of 5 gymnosperms and 645 angiosperms, belonging to 434 genera and 128 families were enumerated. These are distributed in four main vegetation types; mangrove forest, beach vegetation, lowland dipterocarp forest and hill dipterocarp forest. The richness of seed plants on Pulau Tioman warrant the forests there to be conserved.
