The Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research has released a new book, “Singapore Biodiversity: an Encyclopedia of the Natural Environment.” The 552-page book is the effort of more than 65 contributors who have cataloged the natural environment in Singapores parks, forests and shoreline.
While Singapore is a small country, this significant effort is important for its breadth of scope and detail. The first volume of this compendium covers the history of biodiversity research in this nation, the public policies that are in place to safeguard it, and the education outreach that is taking place. The second half of the book catalogs the organisms found in Singapore.
