There are more than 700 species have been described by botanists. Most of the figs living in the dry non-inundated habitats. However, there is an exception for Ficus microcarpa, small-fruit figs. This species has been mentioned by many for its capability of inhabiting the coastal area, or even permanently inundated areas.

In my recent trips during a project by PTPN III and IPB University, I saw many individuals of this species growing along the river of Batang Toru. It's quite interesting that this species can be quite dominant in an alluvial plain. See the figure below for my documentation.
