Status and Distribution of Ficus Virens Aiton
Abstract, Nature in Singapore, 2013
Ficus virens is a nationally critically endangered species in Singapore, with most of its individuals found in urban areas. Ficus virens has many uses and can be actively propagated through stem cuttings to increase its numbers and distribution in Singapore. Fruiting Ficus virens trees in parks may improve frugivore biodiversity but cultivation along roadsides may not be as well received owing to its periodic leafing resulting in much leaf litter.
