Fantastic Figs of Borneo

Fantastic Figs of Borneo

If you have photographed a fig from any parts of Borneo (Brunei, Sabah, Sarawak, Kalimantan) and nearby islands, please add your spottings to this group. Even if you are unable to identify them, my team will be happy to help in identifications. Figs are quite variable as they can appear as large trees, small epiphytes, shrubs, and stranglers. It is NOT a fig if you see flowers on it. Sign in to join mission

When the word "Fig" is mentioned, most of us will think of the commercialized edible figs but in fact Figs are much more than that! Figs (Ficus spp.) are unique in which their flowers grow inside the fruits so they have special symbiotic relationship with fig wasps for pollination. Borneo is a heaven for fig species. There are over 150 species of wild figs here on this huge island. My organization (1StopBorneo Wildlife) with our collaborators are conducting a massive fig survey in Borneo to document it and study about its importance in the ecosystem.
