Mt Kinabalu Summit Trail -Sabah Nov 2013-41

Habitat overview of Nepethes villosa and Nepenthes x kinabaluensis. Note the scattered Nepenthes within the lower vegetation. Although humidity was high and moisture levels of the ultramaphic soils was moderate to moist, all plants were stunted. Wind levels were not prevalently high. Most species were sclerenchymous (thick cell walls, presenting hard leaves).The presence of Lepidosperma sp. (possibly L. recurvum) and Lepidosperma sp. (possibly L. chinense) (as seen growing in combination along Melbourne, Australia's foreshore) is fascinating. Ponder this, in conjunction with the altitude of 2600 - 3000 meters a.s.l. and Melbournes climate. It was a cool 18dC at 2700m, with a steamy 28dC at 1200m a.s.l. on the day.
