Treasures of Pa’Umor

Forests of Pa’Umor hide many treasures – treasures that nobody has ever seen and that possibly cannot be seen elsewhere in the world. This is a finding of a recent Czech botanical-mycological expedition to the Kelabit Highlands. In the course of a few days, nine new species of plants and fungi were discovered that bear witness to extraordinary values of not only Pa’Umor forests, but tropical rainforests in general. In this post, we present very first publicly available pictures of some of these extravagant organisms. Details about their life, roles in the forest ecosystem or how they can help us understand the forests’ values will be presented in the following posts.
