The rainforests of Brunei are among the richest and most diverse eco-systems in the world. To find out more, NSS members recently made a field trip to the sultanate's Ulu Temburong National Park using the Kuala Belalong Field Study Centre as their base. Nick Baker reports on their first hand report, and Tan Ju Lin on Birding in Belalong. With lots of colourful photos from the trip, and tips on going there.
Weeds are not always destructive or ugly. Indeed, some like Cupid's Shaving Brush (Emilia sonchifolia) can be pretty with lovely flowers. What's more, they have their many uses as natural remedies. Leong Tzi Ming and Hugh T. W. Tan find out more about this lowly but versatile weed.
