What's your favourite monocot and why?: 

Orchidaceae is my favourite monocot because this is the family that I had done my mycorrhizal research on and I have found how fascinating the inter-relationship between the plant and the fungi to the survival of the plant.

Personal interets/role in project: 

I am interested in the database of all the monocots as I am very involved in outreach programme and plant identification for the collection in Singapore Botanic Gardens.
