About this book

Packed into the relatively small area of Brunei Darussalam is an amazing plant diversity of nearly 3500 species of indigenous seed plants. Almost 3% of these are extremely rare and endemic to Brunei, and nearly half of the overall Brunei seed-plant flora is not known outside of the botanically rich island of Borneo. Of the species documented, more than half of the total 1900 species are trees.

Forests and Trees of Brunei Darussalam gives an overview of Brunei Darussalam's varied rain forests and its incredibly rich plant wealth, and explains why the rain forests are an important aspect of conservation.
