Bibliography: Landscape and Environment in Singapore

[Note: This bibliography derives directly from A Sense of History: a Select Bibliography on the History of Singapore, the more complete on-line list of materials compiled by The National University of Singapore Library and translated into html by Tim Yap Fuan. I have omitted many items, chiefly undergraduate and graduate theses written at the former University of Malaya and elsewhere, generally obtainable outside the NUS library. Singaporean users should consult the original on-line bibliography. [GPL]
