Exposure to ecotourism reduces survival and affects stress response in hoatzin chicks (Opisthocomus hoazin)
Ecotourism helps to protect many habitats, but may also have negative impacts on wildlife. We investigated effects of ecotourists on reproductive success of hoatzins (Opisthocomus hoazin) and onExpand

Nesting and nest trees of stingless bees (Apidae: Meliponini) in lowland dipterocarp forests in Sabah, Malaysia, with implications for forest management
Abstract Nesting habits of highly social stingless bees (Meliponini) were studied in lowland dipterocarp forests in Sabah, Borneo. A total of 275 nests of 12 species of bees were located. All nestsExpand
