Abstract

The Santubong Peninsula is steeped in history and antiquity, and is easily accessible throughout the year. The Peninsula harbours mudflats, mangroves forest, mixed dipterocarp and cloud forests that show a vast vegetational diversity- from stunted to towering trees, with a matching variety of flowers, fruits, creeping epiphytes and ferns. Its diverse habitats are home to many endemic plants and animals, including numerous species of conservation importance. The many ecotourism elements put in one place, make Santubong unique. The history of biodiversity research in Santubong is a long one, and preceding that, legends and archaeological interests, have been the subject of scholarly attention. Such information has been integrated into this work through specially commissioned chapters by leading specialists.
