Daniele Miranda

Brazil

Eucalyptus cultivation has been growing in Brazil in the proximity of highly diverse and productive areas, such our estuaries, and mangroves. Sulfluramide (N-etil perfluoroctane sulfonamide), a perfluorinated compound, is frequently used in eucalyptus plantations to combat leaf-cutting ants.

Michelle Abadie de Vasconcellos

Brazil

Our work was initially motivated by curiosity about the true geographic range and abundance of the Admirable Red Belly Toad (ARBT), which grew into a sense of conservation urgency, due to the very small size of the very threatened known population. The known site is embedded in a small forest fragment surrounded by a heavily deforested agro-industrial landscape.

Rizwana Khanum

Pakistan

Chitral Gol National Park (CGNP) with an estimated area of 7750 hector (77.5 sq km) located on 35º50’N Latitude and 71º47’E Longitude. It is one of the alpine river catchments in the Hindukush Mountains with an elevation ranging from 1450 to 4979 m. The park area is out of the reach of Monsoon and receives 462 mm mean annual precipitation, principally in winter and spring.

Kenya

Although little is known about the ecology of African small carnivores (< 15 kg), many species are threatened by habitat loss and human persecution. The rate at which small carnivores, hereafter referred to as mesocarnivores, are declining is high especially in non-protected areas due to habitat loss, driven by unprecedented human population growth.

India

The distribution and population of White-winged Duck is dramatically declined in northeast India owing to degradation of freshwater lakes and evergreen forests. The population may go extinct in near future if urgent attention is not given. Not many studies were carried out on the species apart from Choudhury (2007).

Indonesia

Sumba is a wonderful island, located in eastern Indonesia, East Nusa Tenggara province, and part of Savu Sea marine protected area. In the northern part of Sumba, mangrove grows in several unique diverse habitats: mud, sand, and rock. This area has the potential of coastal and marine resources, especially mangrove.

Ghana

Tree-felling for fuelwood is a major contributor to northern Ghana rapidly turning into a ‘wasteland.’ Presently, desert advancement in northern Ghana alone stands at 0.8km per annum, resulting in the vegetation cover needed to support ecological diversity particularly in Upper East Region already fallen below threshold by 5%.

Mongolia

GGSPA A is the biggest protected area in south-west Mongolia which is covering an area of 44.000 sq.km. GGSPA A south borders with Mazongshan, Gansu province in China, act as significant biological for desert fauna.

Bosnia and Herzegovina

Agricultural surfaces occupy large territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina (B&H) as they play an important role in the state economy. The most important fact, in the biological aspect, is that they represent a biotope for many animal species which are under constant anthropogenic pressures.

Afghanistan

Amphibians are the most threatened group of vertebrates with more than 32% species are threatened with extinction globally. Physiological constraints such as permeable skin, anamniotic eggs, and limited vagility have made this group particularly sensitive to rapid habitat changes.
