On the Flora of Mount Kinabalu in North Borneo

RM 200

Introductory Considerations

In spite of the small number of specimens available, the flora of Mount Kinabalu, the highest mountain in the Malay Archipelago excluding New Guinea, had drawn the attention of botanists particularly plant geographers, since the mountain was first climbed by Hugh Low in 1851. The reason for this interest was partly because the high mountains in Java and Sumatra are volcanic, whereas Kinabalu consists of granite and old slates, and partly because of the strange relationships of the plants in the earlier collections with those from neighbouring territories, Australia in particular.
