Ficus malayana (orange arrow pointing to a small tree) is a pioneer species which quickly colonizes bare land in forested areas. In this case the site is an old landslide next to the Kota Kinabalu-Tambunan road at c. 1,500 m asl in the Crocker Range. Notice the abundance of wild bananas and gingers in the photo which are also mammal dispersed pioneer plants, often found on landslips.
On the right hand side of the photo above note the Chinese shrine to datuks (local forest spirits). The shrine was erected by long distance lorry drivers after a series of bad accidents along this stretch of mountain road.
