Abstract

Rattans are tropical rainforest palms with great diversity in morphology and ecology. They are harvested for the canes, which are used for furniture, cordage, basketry, and various other handicrafts. The canes are flexible, yet possess the strength of wood (Yudodibroto 1985). They may be found from West Africa to Fiji, and from the south of China to Queensland, with most species being concentrated in Southeast Asia (Dransfield 1974).
