For instance Mount Kinabalu in Sabah is 4095m high and it is one of the most outstanding area of biodiversity in the world. With such environment, Malaysia is very rich in floral varieties. Surveys identified that there are 8,000 species of flowering plants in the country. Slide53: All rights reserved. Rights belong to their respective owners.
