I'm not sure which peat swamp area of Brunei was visited by Prof Ferry Silk,
but in the interior of Belait District, in the Sungai Ingei Protection
Forest, during 2 - 9th March the Project team saw very heavy flowering of
Shorea albida in kerapa/peat swamp forest, fallen flowers covering the
ground. There also seemed to be a web of fungal hyphae spread at ground
surface, overall. I have pictures of fallen flowers, as (I believe) does

I just went to a peat swamp in Brunei and almost all the Shorea albida were
flowering! The whole forest floor was covered with flowers!

Not sure if peat swamps follow a normal Mast pattern though....
