The Impact of Hunting on the Mammalian Fauna of Tropical Asian Forests
Hunting has become a massive problem in tropical Asian forests because of high human population densities and a generally well-developed infrastructure that not only makes most forest areas easily accessible, but also gives access to distant urban markets for luxury (often medicinal) products.

Most seeds in the Oriental Region, except near its northern margins, are dispersed by vertebrate families which are endemic to the region or to the Old World.
Assessing species' vulnerability to climate change
The effects of climate change on biodiversity are increasingly well documented, and many methods have been developed to assess species' vulnerability to climatic changes, both ongoing and projected
Will plant movements keep up with climate change?

  • 1 July 1992
The majority of known native species can still be found in Singapore today, despite the fact that more than half the island is urbanized and less than 100 ha of primary rain forest survives.
Averting biodiversity collapse in tropical forest protected areas
These findings suggest that tropical protected areas are often intimately linked ecologically to their surrounding habitats, and that a failure to stem broad-scale loss and degradation of such habitats could sharply increase the likelihood of serious biodiversity declines.
Biodiversity and Conservation of Tropical Peat Swamp Forests
Tropical peat swamp forest is a unique ecosystem that is most extensive in Southeast Asia, where it is under enormous threat from logging, fire, and land conversion. Recent research has shown this
A conceptual framework for predicting the effects of urban environments on floras
1 With the majority of people now living in urban environments, urbanization is arguably the most intensive and irreversible ecosystem change on the planet. 2 Urbanization transforms floras through a
