Brazil

The Hyptidinae subtribe, Ocimeae tribe and subfamily Nepetoideae (Lamiaceae), has its predominance occurrence in the Neotropical region, with only two species extending its range to Africa (Harley et al. 2004).

Daphawan Khamcha

Thailand

Giant Nuthatch (Sitta magna) is a globally endangered species. However, it is poorly known globally and has received little attention, particularly regarding habitat management. Therefore, conducting this project will be an excellent opportunity to engage in conservation work that will likely directly benefit a globally endangered species. This project will focus mainly in Thailand.
