Singapore Biodiversity Information
NParks has produced a number of publications on biodiversity in Singapore. The Red Data Book (RDB), in particular, is a good source of information on Singapore’s natural heritage.
First published in 1994, it is an indispensable source of reference for conservation plans and efforts of various governmental and non-governmental organisations. It is an invaluable resource for students and researchers in their understanding and appreciation of Singapore’s biodiversity.
