In December 2019, helped by my two friends from the University of Indonesia, the first checklist of spermatophytes for Jakarta has been published. It is a book in Bahasa that contains a summary of spermatophytes diversity in Jakarta and checklist of all plants hitherto known, compiled from the literature and recent field trips.

The publication of this book hopefully becomes an important contribution to the study of the flora of this very crowded city. A piece of good news is that more than 50 percent of the species are native. I understand that many works possibly overlooked during the preparation.
