Liverworts

A international team of collaborators, led by Matt von Konrat, are undertaking biodiversity studies of a group of plants commonly called bryophytes, especially focusing on liverworts from Fiji. Only scant data exist for both groups of organisms compared to many animal and seed plant groups of the region. Studies of these organisms extend beyond taxonomy and biodiversity, including their application to conservation and environmental monitoring.

Dragon tree

Dracaena ombet is globally endangered tree, it known as dragon tree, is a flagship for afromontane ecoregion, its populations in Hargeisa in Somaliland; and Goda & hemed mountains in Djibouti are threatened. Is under rapid decline due to climate change & habitats degradation. There is urgent need for start monitoring and survey action, work with local NGOs to prepare conservation action plan for the species

White-rumped vulture

White-rumped Vulture population has declined catastrophically across South-Asia, with a decline of over 91% in Nepal, due to widespread use of veterinary diclofenac. Despite ban on veterinary diclofenac in 2006, larger than 3ml vials are still available. The project aims to discourage illegal use of diclofenac (>3ml) vial in veterinary use by limiting these to ≤3ml and sensitizing local communities, veterinary practitioners and government ...

Acer skutchii

I examined the ecology and genetics of all Acer skutchii populations in America. As a result, I identified that the maple from western Mexico was a different species: Acer bizayedii (new species). This project was decisive to the establishment of a new protected natural area. The protected area was created on January 2016 to ensure the preservation of Acer binzayedii and its natural habitat.

Mexican long-nosed bat

The Mexican long-nosed bat is highly susceptible to extinction because is a food and habitat specialist, roosts in caves, and is migratory. Pregnant females of this bat migrate every spring from central Mexico to the south-western United States following the blooms of century plants. We aim to understand the status of the bat’s migratory corridor and identify critical sites necessary to maintain viable populations.

Irrawaddy dolphin

The project aims to protect the critically endangered Irrawaddy dolphins in the Mahakam River and in process of establishing a community-supported dolphin reserve. Furthermore financial and technical aid have been provided in sustainable fisheries and ecotourism sector in the dolphin PAs. Finally, environmental education courses on sustainable resource use and wildlife protection in wetlands habitats are provided for local schools.

Archey's frog

New Zealand's native Archey's frog is number one on the amphibian EDGE list. It is threatened by predation from introduced mammals. To assess the level of predation we have developed molecular techniques to identify frog prey in small mammals diets, as traditional approaches were unreliable. So far these have been successful and can also be applied to any predator-prey diet study.

Riverine Rabbit

The Riverine Rabbit Project is run by the Endangered Wildlife Trust's Drylands Conservation Programme and focuses on the conservation of this Critically Endangered species. Our project not only undertakes critical research on this rare and elusive lagomorph but also involves communities in restoration and protection of its special riparian habitat in the Karoo of South Africa.

Gecko vert de Bourbon

The main objective of the Reunion day gecko' project is to assess taxonomic identity of all Phelsuma borbonica populations (including Reunion and Agalegae Islands) based on phenotypic and genetic evidence. Such data will help assessing conservation priorities that should focus on highly isolated or divergent taxa, including possible new ones.

Ridley's leaf-nosed bat; Ridley's round-leafed bat

Ridley’s leaf-nosed bat is one of the most threatened bat species in Southeast Asia, reported from a few undisturbed forests on the Malay peninsula, Sumatra and Borneo. Throughout its range this bat is increasingly threatened by habitat loss. Our goal is to determine whether this species, and 45 other forest-dependent bats, can ultimately persist in forests degraded by logging and isolated by oil palm agriculture.
