About this book

Stapf's book, first published in 1894, was a crowning achievement of his early career as a botanist and perhaps still the single most important work ever published on the flora of Kinabalu, now recognised as perhaps having as many as 5000 plant species, making it one of the richest localities worldwide. This is a reprint of a work that was no more easy to obtain, providing the important original information so important to taxonomic and conservation studies of Kinabalu's flora. Professor Beaman's introduction brings the work a hindsight that includes commentaries on current knowledge about the character of the vegetation on one of the highest peaks of Southeast Asia, the extent of plant endemism and the affinities of the flora, as well as the comparative richness of Kinabalu's plant life.
