South Africa

The many ecosystem services provided by bats are likely to be severely and detrimentally impacted by, human-induced climatic changes that are likely to impair the operational range of echolocation systems of entire bat species communities. Climatic variables affect the propagation of bat echolocation signals through the atmosphere.

Iran

Lack of evolutionary knowledge, a dramatic decline, and taxonomic uncertainties of Iranian Chinkara hamper conservation efforts. Therefore, in this project, samples of populations throughout the country will be collected non-invasively and analyzed with state-of-the-art molecular methods to provide detailed insight into population history and phylogenetic relationships of Chinkara.

Ghana

Anomabo, Egya, Abandze and Saltpond are prominent coastal communities in the Central Region of Ghana. Like many coastal communities, they are endowed with mangrove forests which provide ecosystem services. Over the years, the mangrove has served as a feeding and breeding grounds for reptiles, mammals and migratory birds.

Ecuador

Galapagos tortoise populations face numerous threats on Santa Cruz Island. Examples include increasing human population and infrastructure development, i.e. roads, facilities for tourists and fencing of agricultural lands through the migratory routes of tortoises. Nesting sites are heavily affected by invasive species such as pigs and fire ants, which cause high mortality of eggs and hatchlings.
