Ana Sofia Nanni

Argentina

The future of a great part of biodiversity depends on its capacity to persist in agroecosystems. The long-term functioning of forest remnants strongly relates to their capacity to hold key ecological processes, such as trophic cascades.

André Costa Pereira

Brazil

The Araguaia floodplain in central Brazil is a wetland that covers ca. 90,000 km2 at maximum flood level along 5 months, sheltering a high biodiversity, including endemic and threatened species, and provide ecosystem goods and services, including water and food supply, and fertile lands. However, this region are under sustained pressure from irrigated rice cultivation.

Andrew Chilombo

Zambia

Zambia is about twice the size of Germany, and has a population projected to be about 18 million by 2020. It has about 175 National Forests and 305 Local Forests. A total of 20 National parks cover about 63,630Km2 (6,363,000ha), and 36 game management areas (GMAs) cover 167,557Km2 (16,755,700ha). About 66 percent is forest land.

Andrii Plyha

Ukraine

The idea of the project is to protect last remnants of old oaks forests by mechanism of protection of Red List species which are living there. Such natural oak forests are poorly represented among pine plantations of Kyiv Polissya and mostly belong to “exploitative” forests due to commercial value.

Armenia

In 2014, the 32 Important Plant Areas have been identified in Armenia. Designation of these areas based on several criteria considering threatened, endemic species and important habitats for vascular plants, whereas the IPAs can provide much higher conservation value and cover also species and habitats of fungi, lichens, mosses inhabiting with such a plant communities.

Arundhati Mohanty

India

The project will aid in our understanding of three sympatric owlets namely the Forest Owlet, Spotted Owlet and Jungle Owlet that are ecologically similar and will provide insight into micro and macro variables that influence their distribution across an area based on species-species and species-habitat interactions.

Congo (Kinshasa)

The Maringa-Lopori-Wamba(MLW) landscape’s most precious ecosystems –and the livelihoods of local communities who depend on them –are at stake. Recent inventory report estimates that about 30% of forests of the protected area of Iyondji Community Bonobos Reserve (ICBR), a community-based protected area, have been completely deforested in the past years.

Basma Sheta

Egypt

There is a critical lack of understanding of reedbed ecological function that we seek to address. Constructed reedbeds have been promoted as a low-cost and ecologically friendly method to improve water quality in polluted ecosystems. Part of their appeal is that they provide extra habitat and should enhance biodiversity.

Nepal

Fishing cat (Prionailurus viverrinus) is a medium-sized wild cat of Southeast Asia listed in the category of vulnerable by the IUCN Red Data List. It was assessed as the endangered species during the 2010 period due to the lack of periodic assessment, highly suspected threats that could have led to the extirpation from the range.
