On tropical mountains, exceptional numbers of species occur. This is because temperature and environment change rapidly as elevation increases. Therefore the species living on the summit of a mountain often only occur there. These are sometimes referred to as endemic species. Mount Kinabalu in Sabah, Malaysian Borneo is an example of that. Researchers of the Naturalis Biodiversity Center in Leiden have assessed this diversity and their results appear today in Nature. The results are not only published in Nature but will be presented LIVE today at 19:00 PM CET! So tune in today for the live webinar!
