Singapore Biodiversity Information

There are several publications made on the biodiversity in Singapore. One of the publications is the Singapore Red Data Book (RDB) and it is a good source of information on Singapore’s natural heritage.

The RDB was first published in 1994 and the second edition in 2008. It serves as a valuable reference book for nature conservation planning and to guide the efforts and actions of various governmental and non-governmental organisations. It is an indispensable resource for students and researchers that will aid in their understanding and appreciation of Singapore’s biodiversity.

The updated Red Lists that feature the national conservation status of each species can be found in the Species Lists on the NParks website.
