This study was designed to produce global overview and regional distribution maps of all rattan species occurring in the Asia-Pacific region (South, Southeast and East Asia, Papua New Guinea and Australia) and Africa. Qualitative data on distribution of rattans were combined with data on existing forest cover. In the course of the study, 610 individual rattan species and subspecies in 13 genera of the sub-family Calamoideae were mapped. The highest figures of potential species richness (92 spp per square km) were recorded in Sarawak, Malaysia.
