In particular we thank Kanokon Bunpha, Voradol Chamchumroon, Sahut Chantanaorrapint, Bob Harwood, Preecha Karaket, Umpika Kawatkul, Rumrada Meeboonya, Thamarat Phutthai, Jarearnsak Sae Wai, Sommanussa Saengrit, Ratsamee Simma, Somran Suddee, Piyakaset Suksathan, Naiyana Tetsana and Pramote Triboun for their assistance and company in the field.

We are particularly grateful to Preecha Karaket and Thamarat Phutthai, who took the majority of the photographs that are used in this website, and to Piyakaset Suksathan, Pramote Triboun, Jarearnsak Sae Wai, Jana Leong-Škorničková and Walaiporn Witsawachaiwat who provided many additional photographs.

We thank the library staff of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh for their frequent help in finding the often obscure literature we needed and the herbarium staff for their careful management of our collections and loans. Thaweesakdi Boonkerd (BCU), James Maxwell (CMU), Rachun Pooma (BKF), Kitichate Sridith (PSU), Prachaya Srisanga (QBG) and Pramote Triboun (BK) are gratefully acknowledged for access to the specimens in Thai herbaria. Germinal Rouhan and Myriam Gaudeul are thanked for their hospitality and for enabling the work at the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris.

The Editors and contributors to Flora of Thailand, Flora Malesiana and the Flora of Peninsular Malaysia are gratefully acknowledged for permission to reproduce text and illustrations for many species. We also thank David Lellinger and the Board of the American Fern Society for permission to base our Glossary on theirs (see Lellinger, 2002).
