About the site
This site was produced as a "Print To Web" project by Ria Tan. She worked in collaboration with Mr N. Sivasothi (Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research, Department of Biological Sciences, the National University of Singapore), and Mrs Anne Dhanaraj (Singapore Science Centre ). The domain name and server is provided by the National University of Singapore via the Centre for Information Technology and Applications, Science Faculty, NUS). The site was launched at the Singapore Science Centre on 17th April 2001, during the launch of the guidebooks for 2001.

Acknowledging the source of information
When writing an essay or doing a school project, you will have to gather information from a wide variety of sources. The various sources of information are acknowledged in a section called "bibliography", "references" or "literature cited". The information listed about each source should be of sufficient detail for someone else to find the exact source. Hence the citation should include the names of authors or editors, the year of publication, the title of the book, the publisher and city, and the number of pages.

Thus the mangrove guidebooks may be cited as:

  • Ng, P.K.L. & N. Sivasothi (eds.), 1999. A guide to the mangroves of Singapore I: The Ecosystem and plant diversity. Singapore Science Centre, 160p.
  • Ng, P.K.L. & N. Sivasothi (eds.), 1999. A guide to the mangroves of Singapore II: Animal diversity. Singapore Science Centre, 168p.
