Summary The catastrophic decline of the endangered Green peafowl Pavo muticus across its former range is well known, yet there are only a handful of reliable population estimates for this species from its remaining range, making global assessment challenging. We present the first rigorous population estimates for this species from Cambodia, and model the distribution and the relationships between this species and several environmental covariates from the Core Zone (187,900 ha) of Seima… 
Lower levels of human disturbance correspond with longer-term persistence of Endangered Green Peafowl Pavo muticus populations
Summary Galliformes are one of the most threatened groups of birds in South-East Asia, with 27% of the species threatened with extinction. Long term population viability and extinction probability
Importance of isolated forest fragments and low intensity agriculture for the long-term conservation of the green peafowl Pavo muticus
Abstract Low intensity subsistence agriculture is generally believed to be less damaging to wildlife than intensive farming. As Myanmar is undergoing rapid modernization, subsistence farming may
Status and distribution changes of the endangered Green Peafowl (Pavo muticus) in China over the past three decades (1990s‒2017)
BackgroundUnderstanding the changes in population dynamics, including demographics, distribution and threats, is essential for species status assessing. The endangered Green Peafowl (Pavo muticus)
Identification of hybrid green peafowl using mitochondrial and nuclear markers
This study developed technology to identify hybrids using mitochondrial Cyt b and COI gene sequences, and 16 microsatellites and provides an example for establishing a purity test workflow for other species that can hybridize and has potential for use in reintroduction of genetically pure green peafowl.
Long‐term monitoring of wildlife populations for protected area management in Southeast Asia
Long‐term monitoring of biodiversity in protected areas (PAs) is critical to assess threats, link conservation action to species outcomes, and facilitate improved management. Yet, rigorous
Actor network analysis to leverage improvements in conservation and development outcomes in Cambodia
Network analysis has emerged as a useful practice for characterizing governance relationships and providing insights to the power relations that affect landscapes. We applied actor network analysis

Response of large galliforms and tinamous (Cracidae, Phasianidae, Tinamidae) to habitat loss and fragmentation in northern Guatemala
Abstract The potential conservation value of fragmented or countryside landscapes in the tropics is being increasingly recognized. However, the degree to which fragmented landscapes can support
Mapping Threatened Dry Deciduous Dipterocarp Forest in South-East Asia for Conservation Management
Habitat loss is the primary reason for species extinction, making habitat conservation a critical strategy for maintaining global biodiversity. Major habitat types, such as lowland tropical evergreen
Identifying Conservation Successes, Failures and Future Opportunities; Assessing Recovery Potential of Wild Ungulates and Tigers in Eastern Cambodia
This first published case-study of tiger conservation in Indochina is presented, from a site where an evidence-based approach has been implemented for this iconic predator and its prey, and it is contended that there is no longer a resident population within the Seima Protection Forest.
Establishing a monitoring baseline for threatened large ungulates in eastern Cambodia
Monitoring ungulate populations is an essential part of wildlife management with ungulates performing essential ecosystem roles including structuring populations of large carnivores. A number of

A review of the status of the Green Peafowl Pavo muticus and recommendations for future action.
The Green Peafowl has undergone a substantial decline throughout East Asia since the turn of the century and is now reported only from a few widely scattered localities in several countries, and is thought to be in danger of extinction in Laos.
