Forest Gems of Semakau

Category : nature

Joseph Lai unveils Forest Gems of Semakau - Pulau Semakau is an island in the south of Singapore, probably better known as being the place where all our incinerated trash ends up at. It has impressive inter-tidal habitats including a wonderful mangrove and is adjacent to several reefs.

In this web resource, Joseph explores the plants of the islands and includes pictures of the rare Alpinia aquatica and Tacca leontopetaloides which, for Singapore, may only be found on this island.
