Benin

Fungi are cosmopolitan heterotrophic organisms that are quite specific in their ecological requirements and having very important socio economic, cultural and above all ecological interests (Kumar & Sharma 2011). These interests are more bind in ectomycorrhizal fungi which live in symbiosis with woody species.

Robbins’ house bat (Scotophilus nucella) is a rare microbat only known from Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire and has been listed as Data Deficient on the IUCN Red list. With funding support from the Rufford Foundation since 2015, I have led a team of researchers to assess bat assemblages in the Krokosua Hills Forest Reserve (KHFR) and further initiated detailed ecological study on the S. nucella.

Brazil

Previous studies have pointed out the negative effects of habitat loss and fragmentation on biodiversity and ecological functions. These effects can lead to changes in community dynamics and ecological functions. However, those changes may not be congruent, hence they can show distinct responses to environmental change levels.

The African Softshell Turtle (Trionyx triunguis) is the only extant member of the genus Trionyx and ranges from the shores of West Africa all the way to the Mediterranean Sea. Though this species remains understudied throughout its’ vast range (considered an EDGE species), populations in West Africa have been particularly overlooked.

Coral reefs are severely threatened ecosystems and have been dramatically reduced recently with up to 50% could be lost in the next decades. Reef zoning in a major strategy for coral reefs conservation and following our previous RSG projects our purpose to measure zoning effectiveness inside the MPA.
