Abstract

Rafflesia spp. (Rafflesiaceae) have a strategic value from both scientific and conservation viewpoints. To date only very few attempts have succeeded in growing the species ex situ and the main protection measures have been by in situ conservation. More detailed studies are required to understand the relationships between Rafflesia spp. and their host plants in order to improve their management and conservation. Studies on the anatomy, in vitro culture and seed germination in connection with conservation have been conducted in the Bogor Botanic Gardens. Effort to transfer Rafflesia patma to an ex situ conservation area has produced some flowers. However, we encountered a bigger challenge to maintain the long term presence of R. patma in ex situ conservation, since a high number of individuals is required to make the viable population.

Abstract

Most members of family Rafflesiaceae are  rare plants which found only in a restricted area in Southeast Asia. As a holoparasitic plant Rafflesia totally depends on the specific host plant in specific habitat. The rarity of Rafflesia caused the limited number of research of many biological aspects of this species.  In this study, observations on the fruit and seed  of R. patma and R. arnoldii were carried out  in its habitat and laboratory. Figures and dimension of the seeds was recorded by Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM).

Abstract

As an endoparasite, growth and development of Rafflesia occurred inside the host tissue. This  cryptic habit is one factor hindering our understanding on how the relationship of host-parasite began. The anatomical study on host-parasite tissue is the approached used in this study. Using infected root tissue of Rafflesia patma, anatomical figures depicting the early event of infection to perfect stage of a flower was derived. However, more study is still required to completely represent the whole life growth and development of Rafflesia during its early stage as endophyte.
