Abstract Little is known about the ecology of the Grey-headed Fish-Eagle (GHFE; Ichthyophaga ichthyaetus) despite it being a globally near-threatened species in apparent decline. We here present the first quantitative information on nesting ecology of this species, in a regionally significant population at Prek Toal, part of the seasonally flooded swamp forest surrounding the Tonle Sap Lake, Cambodia. We found that GHFE selected trees as nest sites that had an open crown structure and were… 
Breeding Density and Habitat Selection of the Grey-Headed Fish-Eagle in Noakhali District, Bangladesh
The results indicate that GHFEs do not require undisturbed or natural waterbodies and can survive well in some human-modified landscapes if adequate food and tall trees for nesting are available; thus the species may be less vulnerable to environmental changes than previously thought.
Modelling future changes of habitat and fauna in the Tonle Sap wetland of the Mekong
SUMMARY The Tonle Sap is the largest wetland in South-east Asia and the heart of the largest inland fishery in the world. Its unique flood pulse system and annual flow reversal is a hotspot for

Land-use sprawl in the Himalayas has caused the conversion of natural habitat into human-modified habitats, thus degrading ecosystem health. Adaptation of birds to changing physical environment can
Impact of Renewable Energy Sources on Birds of Prey
Renewable energy is generated from natural processes that are replenished over time. Use of renewables reduces dependence of fossil fuels and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. These positive outcomes
Impacts of Hydrological Alterations in the Mekong Basin to the Tonle Sap Ecosystem
• A spatial modelling framework was developed to simulate the impact of potential scenarios of change using relationships between fauna and biophysical characteristics. • Potential impacts on 61

ABSTRACT The regional population of the Grey-headed Fish-Eagle (Ichthyophaga ichthyaetus) in Southeast Asia is thought to be in recent decline and its conservation status under threat. We undertook a
Characteristics of White-Tailed Sea Eagle Nest Sites in Hokkaido, Japan
I studied the characteristics of 26 White-tailed Sea Eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla) nest trees and 24 nesting forests in Hokkaido, Japan. Nest trees were an average of 7.9 m taller and an average of

Ecologically justified charisma: preservation of top predators delivers biodiversity conservation
It is suggested that, at least in some biological systems, conservation plans based on apex predators could be implemented to deliver broader biodiversity benefits, and biodiversity levels were consistently higher at sites occupied by top predators.
Status of the Madagascar Fish Eagle Haliaeetus vociferoides in 1995
The Madagascar Fish Eagle breeding population was estimated to be 99 pairs, about twice the number previously estimated in the period 1980–1985, due mainly, it is believed, to the greater search effort.

Birds were surveyed in Phongsaly province, Laos, during March 1996, September 2003, May 2004, late November–December 2004, and March 2005, focusing on the rivers of the Phou Dendin National Protected
Conservation: Top predators and biodiversity
Information collected from five raptor species that differ widely in their diet and habitat associations is used to show that sites occupied by these predators are consistently associated with high biodiversity.
