Deforestation and Plant Diversity of Madagascar's Littoral Forests
This work focused specifically on deforestation and plant diversity in Madagascar's eastern littoral community, using a data set of approximately 13,500 specimen records compiled from both historical and contemporary collections resulting from recent intensive inventory efforts to enumerate total plant species richness and to analyze the degree of endemism within littoran forests.
The Use of an Invasive Species Habitat by a Small Folivorous Primate: Implications for Lemur Conservation in Madagascar
The results confirm Melaleuca swamp as an important part of their home range: while lemurs seasonally limited activities to certain habitats, all groups were capable of utilizing this invasive habitat for feeding and resting.
Population modelling and genetics of a critically endangered Madagascan palm Tahina spectabilis
The models suggest that if the habitat where the species resides continues to be protected the species is unlikely to go extinct due to inherent population decline and that it will likely experience significant population growth after approximately 80 years due to the reproductive and life cycle attributes of the species.
