Kent Ridge is also special for another reason--it\'s home to the National University of Singapore and to NUS Press. Extending from Clementi Road in the west to Alexandra Road in the east, and divided by the \"ninety-nine curves\" of South Buona Vista Road, Kent Ridge exerts its imaginative pull on many Singaporeans and visitors, but especially those who are studying at or have graduated from the NUS. This book will help anyone beguiled by the Ridge to look beyond the academic institutions of today to see the area\'s geological past. It points out the wealth of flora and fauna that still can be found here: from indigenous plants such as the tembusu, tiup tiup, and senduduk to monitor lizards, flying dragons, and oriental green snakes. The book moves through the changing human geography of the region and tells the inside stories behind the NUS\'s original campus master plan. Richly illustrated with photos, historical maps, and images, each chapter of this book is written by NUS faculty and staff who are passionate about the Ridge.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"Half title page; Title page; Copyright page; Contents; Kent Ridge Park; Preface; The National University of Singapore at Kent Ridge; Notes; The Geology of Kent Ridge; Notes; Biology of Kent Ridge; Notes; Pasir Panjang, Kent Ridge and the Singapore Story; Notes; The Building of the National University of Singapore; Notes; Bibliography; Index<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/9028458701<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"History<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Electronic books<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isSimilarTo<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/9028458701#CreativeWork\/kent_ridge_an_untold_story<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"Kent Ridge : an Untold Story.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:productID<\/a> \"1096243349<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:publication<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/1096243349#PublicationEvent\/singapore_nus_press_2019<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:publisher<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/9028458701#Agent\/nus_press<\/a>> ; # NUS Press<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/public.ebookcentral.proquest.com\/choice\/publicfullrecord.aspx?p=5742372<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/muse.jhu.edu\/book\/64968\/<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/www.jstor.org\/stable\/10.2307\/j.ctvf3w2z1<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9789813250680<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nwdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/1096243349<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
