It is found the landscape approach has been refined in response to increasing societal concerns about environment and development tradeoffs and there has been a shift from conservation-orientated perspectives toward increasing integration of poverty alleviation goals.
The impacts and opportunities of oil palm in Southeast Asia: What do we know and what do we need to know?
The ongoing expansion of oil palm plantations in the humid tropics, especially in Southeast Asia, is generating considerable concern and debate. Amid industry and environmental campaigners' claims,…

Rapid conversions and avoided deforestation: examining four decades of industrial plantation expansion in Borneo
It is concluded that plantation industries have been the principle driver of deforestation in Malaysian Borneo over the last four decades, and their role in deforestation in Indonesia was less marked, but has been growing recently.
Four Decades of Forest Persistence, Clearance and Logging on Borneo
The native forests of Borneo have been impacted by selective logging, fire, and conversion to plantations at unprecedented scales since industrial-scale extractive industries began in the early 1970s, and there is still hope for biodiversity conservation.

Aim The environments that existed in south‐east Asian islands during the last glacial are poorly known, limiting our understanding of mammalian biogeography in the region. The objective of this…
Conservation in a Wicked Complex World; Challenges and Solutions
Drawing on research in other disciplines, practices that conservation could consider to better respond to complexity are suggested, including defining clear objectives, the use of scenarios, emphasis on pattern analysis, and ensuring greater scope for creative and decentralized decision making.

Meta-analyses of geological, climatic, and biological data sets are conducted to test which areas have been the sources of long-term biological diversity in SE Asia, particularly in the pre-Miocene, Miocene, and Plio-Pleistocene and whether the respective biota have been dominated by in situ diversification, immigration and/or emigration, or equilibrium dynamics.
