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.

At the Edge of City Existence
The Makati Stock Exchange Building
Bats taking refuge
Quick post: Mike Asinas showed us this unusual thing happening in Makati. In the absence of caves, trees and other natural habitats, life does find a way to exist. Fine example are these bats in the Ayala Triangle, trying to get refuge from the shade provided by the deep eaves of the Makati Stock Exchange Building. The bats take their sleep hanging from the rough texture of the sun baffles and the concrete overhang. That is how animal adaptation works for you in this age of urban concrete jungles!
