Autecological study of bats is very rare in Nepal. A holotype record (Topal 1997), voucher specimen collection (Csorba et al. 1999), morphometric verification note (Thapa and Thapa, 2010), specimen collections in Kathmandu (Pearch 2011) and brief acoustic note (Thapa 2018) has been the extent of published research on endemic Nepalese bat Myotis csorbai.

Frequent and severe coral bleaching events represent major disturbances that damage coral reefs and provide little time for recovery. After coral systems have been destabilised, other organisms colonize the vacant space turning reefs into alternative states that may be dominated by either algae, cyanobacterial mats, or sponges.

Cameroon

Chimpanzee populations are rapidly declining, with grave threats posed by poaching, fragmentation of habitat, and frequent killing by local people for traditional use and to prevent crop-raiding. This current work is an asset to improve the conservation strategies of Nigeria-Cameroon chimpanzees in the Mbam-Djerem National Park (MDNP) in Cameroon.

The Ebo Forest is a mosaic of lowland and sub montane forest located in the Littoral region of Cameroon, North of the Sanaga River, a recurrent geographic barrier that persisted in times and acted for the diversification of several taxa in Central Africa and the Gulf of Guinea Biodiversity Hotspot (Oates et al. 2004).

Cycas is the sole genus under family Cycadaceae. Most of the Cycas species (62%) are listed in IUCN as threatened group of plants. The species is under severe threat with its population declining due to estimated 30% of its natural habitat destroyed over past 90 years. More of its suitable habitat are likely to get reduced under predicted climate change scenario.

Ethiopia

Currently, the degree of the human-carnivore conflict is escalating as humans further convert land for agricultural purposes and reduce the availability of wild prey to carnivores. Actually, the high level of persistence of the human–carnivore conflict is mainly due to livestock predation and has been the reason for eradicating the carnivores from most of their former ranges.

Vietnam

The project goal is providing scientific information on Bourret’s box turtle (Cuora bourreti) population status, threats, basic ecology to better in conservation the species and the other sympatric species within the park. Therefore, the proposed work will improve the conservation outlook for this species by greatly increasing our knowledge of the species’ occurrence, biology, and threats.
