Natural savannahs are productive ecosystems that provide similar ecosystem services (food, non-timber forest products and fodder) like forest. Poor awareness and conflicting debates on vegetation succession has led to their poor calibration as forest. Thus, a huge misconception in their unique ecosystem values, conservation need as well as trending degradations.

Mountains provide valuable ecosystem services for human settlements, playing a critical role in water cycles, and being important centers of biological diversity. They are also popular for tourism with over two million visits per year globally.

Our project focuses on the assessment of Haji Buang Lake, a degraded jellyfish lake in East Kalimantan, Indonesia. Haji Buang is a marine lake, a landlocked body of saltwater fed by subterranean connections to the sea.

Humpback whales (HW) in the Eastern South Pacific migrate each year from high latitudes, where they feed, to low latitudes close to equator, where they breed, forming a management unit called G stock (GS). HW that feed in the Antarctic Peninsula breed in Colombian waters. Historically international effort has studied the biology, ecology, and genetics of this stock.

Increasing woody vegetation cover is a threat to savannah ecosystems, particularly in southwest Serengeti. The observed transformation of the precious plain grasslands and open woodlands into dense woody dominated landscapes, could adversely affect the great biodiversity they once supported.

The International Energy Agency in 2009 predicted a 40% global increase for energy demand in the next two decades. Considering unstable oil prices, increasing emission of greenhouse gases, and global warming, there is an urgent need for alternative, clean and reliable energy. Wind power is one of the most adopted alternative sources of renewable energy in developing regions.

The remnant natural forests are still being converted and socio-economic disparities keep increasing to the detriment of rural areas of Ethiopia. Over decades, forest landscapes are being increasingly fragmented and resulting mosaic landscapes that have fragments of natural habitats. In response to this, the government has begun taking some measures to rehabilitate the degraded lands.

The Galapagos Islands host large predator abundances, such as the scalloped hammerhead, Sphyrna lewini. This species is listed as ‘Endangered’ by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and it is included in the appendix II of the Convention on the International Trade of Endangered Species (CITES) and appendix II of the Convention of Migratory species (CMS).

Overfishing of marine ecosystems threatens biodiversity and the viability of fisheries. Marine reserves are designed to mitigate these impacts by restricting fishing access in select locations, but poaching and lack of enforcement limit their broader success.
