Truly born of fire, the islands of Java and Bali are the result of the subduction and remelting of the Australian-Indian Ocean tectonic plate beneath the Eurasian tectonic plate at the Java trench.

Limestone forests on Java and Bali have basal areas similar to those of other lowland forest types and apparently contain no plant endemics, but because they often grow on steep slopes of shallow soils, their growth pattern is affected.

 To all those interested in the survival of the Bali Starling in the wild
Although the Bali Starling Breeding Centre continues to operate there is little enthusiasm amongst the staff as they too realise that there is little hope in a successful end to their efforts.
