Integrating Riparian Nothofagus Antarctica Forests to the Study of Beaver Invasion on Tierra del Fuego Island, ArgentinaNothofagus antarctica (ñire) forests of Tierra del Fuego Island, experience the dual effects of high impacts from both livestock and beaver (Castor canadensis), and we will explore the natual recovery under these conditions.
Improved Cooking Stoves Campaign Against Deforestation (ICOSCAD)The aim of the project is to sensitise people about the disadvantages of deforestation and encouraging them to use improved cooking stoves as the solution to the deforestation and other related problems.
Rare and Endangered Indigenous Tree Seed Bank & Mapping, African Forest, KenyaThis project aims to identify and map rare and endangered indigenous Kenyan tree species whilst increasing awareness of the local communities and to establish a seed bank with special focus on rare species, helping to increase the biodiversity of reforestation programmes.
Describing Anatomy and Tree Features of IUCN and CITES Timber Species Growing in MozambiqueThe aim of the project is to raise awareness of stakeholders on timber harvesting and trade through workshops and compilation of a catalogue of IUCN/CITES timbers to be used for on field identification.
Gorgany Mountain Range Ecotrails The aim of the project is to rehabilitate forty kilometres of abandoned forest pathways and refurbish two mountain huts to develop a constituency to advocate for long-term protection of the Gorgany Mountains.
Impacts of Habitat Disturbance and Effectiveness of Forest Rehabilitation for Scavengers in BorneoStudies on the effects of habitat degradation on wildlife generally focused on particular taxonomic groups and rarely consider ecologically functional groups as a whole. The project aims to investigate the impacts of land use changes on the vertebrate scavenger community and carcass removal, particularly the effects of logging, conversion to oil palm plantations, and forest rehabilitation.
Removal of Exotics Plants in Threatened Forests of Juan Fernandez Archipelago, ChileThe objective is to develop a technique to exclude invasive plants in the frontier of the endemic forest with the compact layer of invasive plant avoiding an erotion problem.
Assessment of Plant Diversity and Ecological Status of the Coastal Tanzania Forests: A Case Study of Mafia Island “Coastal Forest Mosaic”The project aims to assess the plant diversity and ecological status of the coastal forests in Mafia Island.
Tree Regeneration, Population Structure, and Demographic Patterns of Timber Tree Species in Premontane Forest in North-Western ArgentinaThe objective of this research is to identify and analyze the factors influencing tree regeneration, population structure and dynamic, and demographic patterns of timber tree species in Premontane forest that differ in timber use and last logging intervention (old forest, medium-age forest, and young forest).
Coping with Degraded Habitats: Ecological and Social Flexibility of Relocated Collared Lemurs in the Littoral Forest of MadagascarThe aim of the project is to understand whether lemur populations living in partially degraded forests undergo nutritional and/or social stress when compared to populations occurring in intact habitats.
