The First Philippine Holdings Exhibition Hall
The Ultramafic and Limestone Karst Forests Gallery features the two unique forest types in the Philippines. This gallery expounds on how the country’s unique geological formation shapes the exceptional flora and fauna of the Philippines. Shown in this gallery are the metallophytes and carnivorous plants that are well adapted to the iron-rich, nutrient-deficient ultramafic soil such as the “bonsai” or other small trees that form a pygmy forest. The exceptional faunal diversity of the ultramafic and limestone karst forests is also displayed.
