You asked for Beema Bamboos.

Response to your request

Thank you for recognizing the Ecosystems Research and Development Bureau (ERDB) as source of information on bamboo. With regards to your email dated May 4, 2023 inquiring about the Beema bamboo, we regret to inform you that we have not covered this bamboo species since our office is more concerned on the economically important bamboo species such as kawayan tinik, giant bamboo, etc. 

With this, you may try to contact the CENR Offices of Marinduque and Romblon for possible availability of data. 

For further assistance you may review the FAQ section of the eFOI site:

If you are not satisfied with the result of the review, you then have the right to appeal to the Office of the President under Administrative Order No. 22 (s. 2011).

Also we would like to request a small a amount of your time to kindly fill up the  survey form located in this link:

Because you feedback is important to us.

Thank you.
