India

We intend to compare the change in species diversity of reptilian, avian and amphibian groups across a disturbance gradient in the Andaman Islands, using South and Little Andaman as study sites. Considering the extended exposure of South Andaman to tourism over the past few decades, it represents a system with high tourism pressure.

Chefor Fotang

Cameroon

The Kom-Wum Forest Reserve (80km2) was created in 1951 in the North West Region of Cameroon (Sunderland & Mannaseh 2003). Since its creation, an increase in human population growth in the villages in and around the reserve has caused many local people to encroach into the reserve to exploit forest resources for their livelihood (Kah 2015).
