Marine protected areas (MPAs) are key tools for combatting the global overexploitation of endangered species. The prevailing paradigm is that MPAs are beneficial in helping to restore ecosystems to more 'natural' conditions. However, MPAs may have unintended negative effects when increasing densities of protected species exert destructive effects on their(More)
Research on dugong–seagrass interactions in Indonesia was done during the period 1990 until 2005 in respectively East Aru, Maluku Province and East Kalimantan, Indonesia. This research investigated intensive rotational grazing by dugongs in intertidal inshore Halodule univervis seagrass meadows, dugong movements in relation to these grazing swards, and(More)
In remote, tropical areas human influences increase, potentially threatening pristine seagrass systems. We aim (i) to provide a bench-mark for a near-pristine seagrass system in an archipelago in East Kalimantan, by quantifying a large spectrum of abiotic and biotic properties in seagrass meadows and (ii) to identify early warning indicators for river(More)
The knaw collaboration projects, which were aimed at the promotion of quality researches in Indonesia, have succeeded over the years in the establishment of effective ‘beach heads’ of scientific research which are still relatively rare in this country. The resources assembled and experience accumulated in the processes have begun to show promising(More)
Phytophagous insects of estuarine tidal marshes which live inside their host plants, are, in contrast to the plants, not directly exposed to the estuarine salinity gradient. Previous field studies, however, have shown that patterns of growth and development ofAgapanthia villosoviridescens larvae, stem-borers of the halophyteAster tripolium, gradually change(More)
