This project was designed to establish the existence of previously unknown, but suspected leopard populations in Yemen and corridors between them and the population that we have already documented in the Hawf Protected Area. Due to serious security issues in Yemen, we have instead been continually monitoring the exceptional biodiversity in Hawf Forest and made numerous important discoveries with regional and global conservation significance.

27-06-2011 - Lichen
The long-neglected lichen described as Cladonia trapezuntica was rediscovered thanks to the MBZ Fund. Molecular, morphological, and chemical analyses resulted that C. trapezuntica is a robust morphotype of Pycnothelia papillaria. Consequently, the southeastern distribution limit of P. papillaria is extended to Turkey. This species was evaluated as critically endangered (CR) based on several criteria.

In 2011-2012, I conducted transect surveys in 10 sites in Nakai Nam Theun National Protected Area (NNT NPA), central eastern Laos. At each site, I walked transects and recorded douc groups sighted, and signs of threats. I used both Distance Sampling and a habitat suitability model to estimate the abundance and distribution of red-shanked doucs (Pygathrix nemaeus) in NNT NPA.
