For very many explorers, naturalists and conservationists, there is no parallel to the spectacular Kinabalu and its special biological richness. During its genesis, this geologically young mountain attained remarkable height to over 4000 m, and has weathered climate change episodes through millenia that ranged from ice-capped peaks to today s largely bare granitic summit area. The mountain has an impressive array of natural communities dispersed over a complex formation of rock types and topography, across an impressive elevation gradient from tropical, through temperate, to polar climatic regimes. The precipitous topography has kept many places unexplored and most ecological assemblages and organisms are only beginning to be better studied.

Soft cover. Condition: New. 2nd Edition. 127 pp., illustrations, maps, bibliography. This book explores the wealth, diversity and uniqueness of the rain forests of Brunei Darussalam, a tiny, oil-rich sultanate on the tropical island of Borneo. Brunei s magnificent forests have been little disturbed and are easily accessible, granting a valuable first introduction to the plant life of Borneo. The focus is Brunei s rich and varied flora, with accounts of the diversity of plant form and habits, illustrated by botanically accurate watercolours of plants that represent various key groups found in Borneo, from the rainforest trees to palms, bamboos and orchids. The text is accessible to the interested amateur and will also delight and inform professional botanists and foresters.
