Plant names (Darma Laksana, 2010)

Plant names in Nusa Penida Dialect: A preliminary Study

Professor I Ketut Darma Laksana, during the Third International Seminar on Austronesian Languages and Literatures (PPS Ling. Udayana University), held in Bali 19-20 July 2010, concisely discussed the use of plant names in 'Nusa Penidian', the Bali Aga dialect on the island Nusa Penida. The English in the article below has been adapted to enhance readability, and additional remarks by the author are introduced in square brackets.

Eucheuma cottonii (Firdausy/Tisdell, 1991)

Carunia Firdausy & Clement Tisdell published their article 'Economic Returns from Seaweed (Eucheuma cottonii) Farming in Bali, Indonesia; in 'Asian Fisheries Science 4 (1991): Asian Fisheries Society, Manila, Philippines', (originally: Department of Economics, University of Queensland, Australia, 27 August 1990). They discuss the promising revenues of seaweed Eucheuma cottonii at Jungutbatu, Nusa Penida, Bali.

Land snails (Whitten/Rensch, 1996/1938)

Bernhard Rensch discovers new fauna on Nusa Penida (1938)

Nusa Penida lies on a very narrow ridge between Lombok and Bali. Between Lombok and Nusa there is a stretch of sea-floor of 220m below sea level in an otherwise much deeper Lombok Straight (at a depth of more than 600m), whereas the much narrower ridge between Nusa Penida and Bali lies at 210 metres below sea level. It was to be expected that Penida's fauna was similar to Bali's fauna.

Psocoptera (Toineno et al., 2012)

In June 2012, Eyang Sriyani Toineno, Ni Made Suartini & Ni Luh Watiniasih wrote an article on 'The family diversity of Psocoptera at Nusa Penida'; published in: 'Jurusan Biologi Volume XVI No.1; F. MIPA Universitas Udayana, Kampus Bukit Jimbaran, Bali'. Psocoptera are an order of insects that are commonly known as booklice, barklice of barkflies. This article was written as a tribute to the late Endang Sri Kentjonowati, M.Sc, Ph.D., biology teacher at Udayana University of Denpasar.
