The Philippines is blessed with a very high biodiversity, including the plants living in its remaining forest cover. Trees alone comprise about 3500 species. Just to research on a species a day would take about 10 years to finish all of just the trees. Then there are still the shrubs, herbs, ferns etc. Through this blog we hope to introduce you to some important plants in the forest before they completely disappear because of habitat destruction.

Today is Philippine Independence Day. Every June 12 I get reminded with the line from the song 'Bayan Ko'.
'Ibon man may layang lumipad, Kulungin mo at umiiyak'.
People are fortunate they have voice and reasoning. These birds do not.
