Magnificent Flower Of Sabah – Rafflesia

Magnificent Flower Of Sabah – Rafflesia

RM20.00

Rafflesia flowers are the largest in the world. Yet the plant body of these incredible plants consists of only tissue strands within the Tetrastigma vines they parasites, and the flower itself. The present account serves as an introduction to these amazing plants, which have enthralled all who have seen them. The present book seeks therefore to highlight Rafflesia because of its attraction and its value as a symbol of conversation. In the book is assembled a general profile of Rafflesia, a genus of some sixteen species, consisting of information on its structure, biology and conservation. By intention many colour photographs, which capture the beauty and uniqueness of these plants, have been used; after all, the fascination of these plants, which are not easily found in flower, is near-impossible to express with words alone.
