It is also the last remaining peat swamp forest in Sabah. This book is a compilation of the results of the Klias-Binsulok Scientific Expedition, a joint effort between Universiti Malaysia Sabah and the Forestry Department of Sabah, surveying the flora, fauna and surrounding environment of these forest reserves. Sections are devoted to freshwater algae, flora, Nepenthes, butterflies, fishes, amphibians, birds and mammals. Apart from these studies, the socio-economic and human dimension is also discussed in this book, with chapters on the use of traditional medicines by local communities in the Klias Peninsula and potential of establishing Binsulok as a choice nature tourism destination.]
