Mangroves are crucial wetland ecosystems mainly made of shrubs and trees with ecological optimum similar to marine and estuaries conditions. They play key roles in ecological, social and economic stability yet they are highly threatened and have even been classified “endangered ecosystems” (Duke & Schmitt, 2012). It is important for stakeholders to design sustainable management plan.

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.

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.
