Fiji

Oceanic islands in the western south Pacific are quite susceptible to the occurrence of extremely destructive tropical cyclones. Such is the case of Fiji and Cyclone Winston (CW) (Category 5), which struck the country in 2016. From the total mangrove coverage in Fiji, 67% was distributed within a 50-km radius of the CW’path, resulting as one of the major affected ecosystems from this event.

Pollinators play an essential role for ecosystem health and maintain biodiversity through the pollination of both native plants and domesticated crops. In Argentina, many of the fruits, vegetables and some cereal crops are dependent upon pollination for full fruit set.

Tanzania

Invasive alien species are those that have become established in a new surroundings, then reproduce and spread in ways that are destructive to biodiversity and/or human interests (Getachew et al., 2012). Current studies on invasive pollinator mutualism have focused only on the indirect impact of invasion for the native plant pollination (Stout et al., 2017).

El Salvador

The process of seed dispersal by bats is mostly based in small-seeded plants, although it has been proved the importance of bats dispersing large-seeded plants, which are associated with mature habitats and the dispersal of this type of seeds are traditionally linked with large frugivorous vertebrates, therefore there are still few studies on bats and their contribution in dispersing big seeds in

Angola

Afromontane forest is the most threatened habitat type in Angola (<800 ha remaining). It forms the smallest and most isolated Afromontane centre. Mount Moco has the second-most Afromontane forest in Angola, but rapid forest loss and degradation, driven primary by human-caused grassland fires, is putting endemic, forest-dependent birds at risk of extinction.

Indonesia

Savu Sea is known as an important habitat for nursery and migratory corridor; therefore, traditional fishing practices are thriving within this area. Mobulid hunt has been known as one of the common fishing practice in this area. Despite the attempt to protect the ray population by establishing National Park within several areas of Savu Sea, the ray hunt is still happening.
