Project summary:

Limestone habitat is a home for many endemic herbaceous plants. Among the unique plant that thriving well in the limestone habitat is a one-leaf plant or scientifically known as Monophyllaea. About 21 taxa of Monophyllaea occurring in Sarawak. The Monophyllaea are unique and sensitive to the ecological disturbance and therefore can be considered as habitat indicator for limestone disturbance.
