Tanzania is estimated to hold the world’s largest population of African lions (Panthera leo), with the Ruaha ecosystem holding 10% of this population. However, lions in this area often come into conflict with livestock and are killed by pastoralists from Barbaigs, Maassai, and Sukuma tribes.

Monica Chege

Kenya

Centuries ago lions, humans and their livestock coexisted; however, in the recent decades the frequency of human-carnivore conflicts has increased significantly. This has attributed to reduction in wild prey, increased contact between lions, people and their livestock due to loss/fragmentation of suitable habitat.

Pakistan

One of the major challenges of conservation of biological communities in areas facing degradation is the unavailability of baseline studies during the pristine phase (Drumbrell et al. 2008; Trisurat et al. 2010). Monitoring is the process of determining state of a system and measuring changes in that system over time (Yoccoz et al. 2001).

During the last three decades, soybeans crops extension has expanded without precedents in Argentina and particularly in this province, where the area planted since 1988 showed a 7-fold increasing, ranking among the five main producing provinces. DCF was reduced to isolated fragments of different shapes and sizes, surrounded by an agricultural matrix.

Argentina,Chile

Recent global warming and severe droughts have caused decline and forest mortality worldwide. In addition, climatic models predict that these extreme events will be more severe and frequent in the next decades. Nonetheless, tree physiological mechanisms under drought conditions and the key drivers inducing tree decline are still poorly understood.
