Apparently the female cone of Araucaria columnaris, a rare find that had fallen from atop the tree.


Cinnamomum verum examined by Kohsak and Daryll.


Lilina pulls some of the bark, Gordon on the right.

The Mindanao gum tree, also known as the painted gum tree or rainbow gum. Eucalyptus deglupta. Beverly called it "the naked tree."


Miki Fritz with a the Agathis lanceolata, another gymnosperm. The hardened resinous sap smells like pine sol.


Daryll under the Agathis lanceolata - kauri pine.


Miki and Lilina studying what is, for Pohnpei, an unusual tree.
