Abstract

In 1976 the Council of the Society invited Robin Hanbury-Tenison to lead a multi-disciplinary expedition to Gunong Mulu National Park, Sarawak. This paper gives an account of the organization and logistic support given to a team of 115 scientists over a period of 15 months between June 1977 and September 1978. The scientific programme, summarized here by the coordinator, Clive Jermy, gives an insight into the lines of investigation undertaken, which will form a baseline for future research in geomorphology, hydrology, botany, zoology and ecology both in the Park and elsewhere in Borneo. Another and very important aim of the expedition was to produce for the Government of Sarawak guidelines for the development and management of this, one of their newest and largest National Parks.
