_____Published in association with the National Parks Board of Singapore, this important book combines vivid photographs of marine and terrestrial sites and species with a highly informative and readable text. The book starts with a look at Singapore's wild past: its biogeography from before human occupation up to 19th century changes and finishes with a look at the possible future of wildlife in the country. In between, there are full details on the current flora and fauna to be found in and on Singapore's reefs and rocks, mangroves and mud, lowland and swamp forests, and parks and gardens.
