Establishments of Plant Species Diversity Following 2010 Catastrophic Eruption of Mt Merapi, Java Indonesia: Implication for Conservation and Restoration

Most recent eruption of Mt. Merapi occurred in 2010 has brought up idea of how Indonesian ecologists can document the establishment of pioneer species and the subsequent species on Mt. Merapi volcano in order to generate baseline data that will be useful for managers working with Merapi to initiate rehabilitation programs.

Fragmentation, Plant Invasion and Native Species Conservation in Tropical Forest Landscape of Mt. Merapi

Mt. Merapi has periodic eruptions that left the forest to become disturbed and fragmented. Some of these areas are in a successional process. Before the 2010 eruption, there were other eruptions such as in 2006 and 1994. From different perspectives, colonizers species can also be an invasive. These studies will aims to identify colonizer species in each of the areas and assess them weather or not they will become invasive and to understand the correlation between successional ages and species diversity with distribution and abundance of invasive species.

Inventory and Diversity Assessment of the Herpetofauna of Gunung Leuser National Park, Sumatra

Situated on the northern tip of Sumatra, the Leuser Ecosystem is an area of global importance to the conservation of biodiversity. Within this ecosystem lies Gunung Leuser National Park (GLNP), known for its high diversity in birds and mammals. However we know surprisingly little about its herpetofauna; to better estimate species diversity we propose to carry out a herpetofaunal inventory in GLNP.
