This website is created by the Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research (RMBR) at the National University of Singapore, to provide a searchable digital database of Singapore’s natural heritage, i.e., its flora, fauna and natural habitats. The initial funding for creating the digital nature archive (DNA) is sponsored by the Care-For-Nature Trust Fund of Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation. RMBR maintains and update the database, with supports from the National Parks Board.
The colony is a flat or curved, plate-like sheet, one cell in thickness. The cells are broadly ellipsoidal and regularly arranged in vertical and transverse rows. The individual mucilage sheaths are not distinguishable and usually fused to form a homogeneous colourless colonial matrix. This plate-like sheet is achieved by the cells dividing successively at right angles to each other and in two planes.
