23-05-2012 - Bay Island Forest Lizard
In the tropical Andaman Islands, the forest floor lizard community is affected by introduced spotted deer. This indirect negative effect of an introduced mammalian herbivore on endemic lizards was documented in a study conducted by a team of Indian ecologists from 2012 to 2014. They found that spotted deer, by extensively browsing on the under-story vegetation, reduce cover and consequently depress lizard densities.

12-01-2012 - Congregating fireflies
Very little is known about the fireflies in the Kuala Selangor Nature Park (KSNP). The KSNP lake system is undergoing rehabilitation. These changes may have an impact on the fireflies. The firefly study and habitat mapping will aid in the Park management, where the fireflies can be a bio-indicator. A monitoring program and awareness materials will be developed. KSNP is a Congregating Firefly Zone (MBZSCF:0925338).

The Mouse-tailed Dormouse is one of the rarest and least known mammal species in Europe. This project gathered data on species ranging behavior, activity and habitat use in European Turkey and Southeastern Bulgaria, using radio-tracking methods for fist time on this species. DNA material was collected for population genetics analysis, and project results were disseminated through publications, presentations and media.
