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.

Saw this cariton caravan along Visayas Avenue
The caravan fare of native household items
Quick Post: I have not seen a buffalo caravan for quite sometime. When I started my masteral degree back in 2005 I still notice a few of them parking near UP on Commonwealth Avenue. The caravan leaders were letting the buffalos graze on the grass growing on roadside. Now I don't see them anymore.
A few days ago I saw this cariton caravan on Visayas Avenue. Are the buffalo caravans completely a thing of the past? I sure hope not, though these cariton caravans seem to carry all the items sold by the original animal caravan, with some new additions of course.
