Latitude : 2 40 15 S Logitude : 112 18 58 E Altitude : 0 to 30 metres Area : 7500 ha Wetlands: 7500 ha Site Description A permanent blackwater lake on a tributary of the lower Seruyan river. Outlet presumed to be blocked by the levees of the main river. Associated seasonally flooded backswamps (both grass and forest) along the main river. Area known to be important for herons, but no surveys are known to have been made. These are required to determine importance. The lake is surrounded by Kereangas (heath forest) and Kerapah (the wet facies of kerangas). Recent information (Giesen 1996) states that the site is generally in a good condition, although further than several kilometres from the lake, there is a lot of shifting cultivation. The area is not rich in wildlife, but perhaps some unusual species of adapted plants and animals (fish, pitcher plant-adapted species) are to be expected. Site Location Danau Sembuluh is located on lower Seruyan River, Central Kalimantan.
Born in the Netherlands on 23-04-1940 and passed away in Bali on 25-05-2015. Farelli was the pseudonym of a remarkable man who was infused with an obsessive desire to create things that did not yet exist. Born in the Netherlands in 1940 Dolf Versteegh left his home country in 1990 in order to start a new life on the Island of Bali. Without any formal education he reinvented himself as an architect, as a designer of furniture, as a sculptor and as a writer.
As a teenager Dolf spent only three years in High School but he kept studying history and the natural world all his life and during his last 25 years on Bali he revealed himself not only as versatile artist but also as a formidable scholar of biology.
Farelli was a prolific creator of web content and what he has left behind will remain standing as a great monument to his creative spirit, his ingenuity and his never-ending search for knowledge.
