Abstract : It is quite that Mindanao, the second largest island in Philippines is poorly known and understudied. The study aimed to identify and described morphologically family Zingiberaceae; determine the distribution of family Zingiberaceae and compare the affinity of the species through cluster analysis. Findings of the study revealed a total of 14 species belonging to two subfamily, two tribe and seven genus. Morphological characters of species are far more superior proven by the species to fall to their particular genera of which they are associated and it implies that the morphological descriptions agree with the numeric analysis. Furthermore, Zingiberaceae species distribution is generally scattered and dwells on the elevation of 900-1600 meters asl. Thus, monitoring of Zingiberaceae as indicator species should be conducted to assess the environmental conditions and conservation status of the forests in Mindanao.
Keywords : Zingiberaceae, distribution, cluster analysis.
