NEW. Very well illustrated, large 8vo, pp (22), 235, a very good copy in dustwrapper. [ The Maliau Basin, Sabah's Lost World celebrates the many natural wonders in one of the most captivating and mysteriously beautiful protected areas in the World. The Basin has a spectacular crater-like form with a mountainous rim and includes magnificent rain forests, wild rivers, splendid waterfalls and a cool highland plateau. These rain forests inspire awe by their immense richness in plant and animal life, and a sense of history spanning millions of years. Exceptionally rare, possibly even unique, plant communities occur in Maliau's montane forests. Although scientific exploration has only recently begun, Maliau's importance in terms of protecting a tremendous range of ecosystems with innumerable species of plants and animals, many of which are rare and endangered elsewhere, has already become evident. Through spectacular photographs and an excellent accompanying text, this beautiful and informative book fosters a deeper understanding of many of nature's splendid wonders. The book is an important guide to Maliau's plant and animal life, natural communities and geology and will greatly enhance the experience of both explorers-to-be and nature lovers at large.]
