About David Tng

I am David Tng, a hedonistic botanizer who pursues plants with a fervour. I chase the opportunity to delve into various aspects of the study of plants. I have spent untold hours staring at mosses and allied plants, taking picture of pollen, culturing orchids in clean cabinets, counting tree rings, monitoring plant flowering times, etc. I am currently engrossed in the study of plant ecology (a grand excuse to see 'anything I can). Sometimes I think of myself as a shadow taxonomist, a sentimental ecologist, and a spiritual environmentalist - but at the very root of it all, a "plant whisperer"!

    Such a beautiful fern. When Mary STrong Clemens is in the Eungella Forest in 1947, she speaks of finding this plant: Kibara clemensiae, Perkins. Apparently it is hard to distinguish from a similar plant. Is it a tree? Do you have a photo of it I might consider using for the book? Nelda B. Ikenberry

      Hi Nelda,
      Sorry for the late response. I don’t have any photos of Kibara (have never seen the species), sadly. But I’d be happy to pass you one if I get one. There was a species that occurs in FNQ, but that has now changed name to I think.
