Increasing carbon storage in intact African tropical forests
The response of terrestrial vegetation to a globally changing environment is central to predictions of future levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide. The role of tropical forests is critical becauseExpand

Detection of forest stand-level spatial structure in ectomycorrhizal fungal communities.
Ectomycorrhizal fungal (EMF) communities are highly diverse at the stand level. To begin to understand what might lead to such diversity, and to improve sampling designs, we investigated the spatialExpand

Use of ancient sedimentary DNA as a novel conservation tool for high-altitude tropical biodiversity.
Conservation of biodiversity may in the future increasingly depend upon the availability of scientific information to set suitable restoration targets. In traditional paleoecology, sediment-basedExpand

Effects of environmental variations on CO2 Efflux from a Tropical Peatland in eastern Sumatra
CO2 efflux from tropical peat swamp substrates was measured under three different land uses (selectively logged forest, recently burned and cleared forest, and agriculture) in Jambi Province, easternExpand

Historical atmospheric pollution trends in Southeast Asia inferred from lake sediment records.
Fossil fuel combustion leads to increased levels of air pollution, which negatively affects human health as well as the environment. Documented data for Southeast Asia (SEA) show a strong increase inExpand

Modelling temperature effects on growth–respiration relations of maize
The temperature dependence of plant growth rate is related to the temperature dependence of respiratory metabolism. To determine how the effects of temperature on respiration rate and efficiency areExpand

Uncovering the Pathogenic Landscape of Helminth (Opisthorchis viverrini) Infections: A Cross-Sectional Study on Contributions of Physical and Social Environment and Healthcare Interventions
Background Helminth infections have proven recalcitrant to control by chemotherapy in many parts of Southeast Asia and indeed farther afield. This study isolates and examines the influence ofExpand
