Description

Woodlands are areas covered by widely-spaced trees, with a fairly open canopy due to non-continuous crowns of trees. A woodland is less dense as compared to a primary or secondary forest. Scrublands, on the other hand, are dominated by sparse, short vegetation or shrubs. Some common shrubs found here include the Senduduk (Melastoma malabathricum), White Leaf Figs (Ficus grossularioides), and ferns like Gleichenia linearis.
