ABSTRACT
The Emerald Pool is situated in remnant lowland (25-75 m), seasonal, fresh water, swamp forest on limestone bedrock. Primary, evergreen, seasonal, hardwood forest, often with bamboo and frequently degraded, surrounds the swamp forest and extends to 175 m elevation. The bedrock above the swamp forest is sandstone with occasional limestone outcrops and hills. A total of 111 vascular plant families with 420 species were found.
