Reds, oranges, yellows, and other bright colors among the rainforest canopy are a sign of a mass flowering event. Borneo's rainforests undergo a cyclic mass flowering every 4-6 years (usually triggered by a dry spell), during which the majority of the trees flower and fruit simultaneously. This periodic event is a fundamental factor in the ecology of nearly all rainforest organisms in Borneo.
