The diversity of beetle assemblages in different habitat types (primary forest, logged forest, acacia plantation and oil palm plantation) in Sabah, Malaysia was investigated using three different… Expand
Alterations in Gut Microbiota of Patients With COVID-19 During Time of Hospitalization
Abstract BACKGROUD & AIMS: Although SARS-CoV-2 infects gastrointestinal tissues, little is known about the roles of gut commensal microbes in susceptibility to and severity of infection. We… Expand
Evolution of endemism on a young tropical mountain
Tropical mountains are hot spots of biodiversity and endemism, but the evolutionary origins of their unique biotas are poorly understood. In varying degrees, local and regional extinction,… Expand
Selective‐logging and oil palm: multitaxon impacts, biodiversity indicators, and trade‐offs for conservation planning.

Strong global demand for tropical timber and agricultural products has driven large-scale logging and subsequent conversion of tropical forests. Given that the majority of tropical landscapes have… Expand
Co-Benefits of Sustainable Forest Management in Biodiversity Conservation and Carbon Sequestration
Background Sustainable forest management (SFM), which has been recently introduced to tropical natural production forests, is beneficial in maintaining timber resources, but information about the… Expand
Oil palm expansion into rain forest greatly reduces ant biodiversity in canopy, epiphytes and leaf-litter
Oil palm cultivation is expanding rapidly into many of the world’s most biodiverse tropical regions. One of the most functionally important and ecologically dominant animal groups in these… Expand

Logging cuts the functional importance of invertebrates in tropical rainforest
Invertebrates are dominant species in primary tropical rainforests, where their abundance and diversity contributes to the functioning and resilience of these globally important ecosystems. However,… Expand
Interaction between flowers, ants and pollinators: additional evidence for floral repellence against ants
It has been commonly suggested that ants negatively affect plant pollination, particularly in the tropics. We studied ant–flower–pollinator interactions in a lowland rainforest in Borneo. Frequency… Expand
