dc.description Groves of durian fruit trees (Durio spp.)a highly esteemed fruit throughout Southeast Asiaremained at the sites of former Malay villages along the Lebir River in the 1970s. (The government resettled the villagers on the lower Lebir in the late 1940s to remove them from the influence of Communist terrorists.) Here a Batek man climbs a durian tree to cut down the unripe fruit, which can be eaten like a vegetable. He does not use any climbing aids, but simply grasps the trunk with his arms and feet and climbs up.
