Securidaca longepedunculata Fresen. (Violet plant) is a shrub in the family Polygalaceae (Beentje, 1994). The species has been documented to have medicinal uses (Matthews, 1994). Its roots and bark are extracted and converted into powder form to treat chest pains, venereal diseases, and headaches by rubbing the powdered roots on the head and even infertility (Mongalo, et al., 2015).

Globally, wetland ecosystems play a vital role in supporting life on earth (Oketch, 2006). For example, the African great lakes significantly function to support the life of many rural communities and the ever-increasing human populations in towns and cities (Hecky et al., 2005).

Brazil

Natural fluvial islands are regulated by an annual flood pulse, where most islands are completely inundated, with a variability of 10 meters (Junk et al. 2001). The input of sediments from Amazonian rivers acts in synchrony with annual phenological patterning of leaf and fruit production and environmental heterogeneity (Montero et al.

Fire events exhibit variability in frequency and intensity according to the characteristics of each environment. Thus, not only the occurrence of fire but its qualitative parameters have a significant influence on the structure, composition, and diversity of plant communities.

Vietnam

Tiger geckos (Goniurosaurus) are considered one of the most susceptible reptile groups. Due to the occurrence in low density within restricted ranges, the lizards are highly threatened by habitat loss, over-harvesting for pet trade and the lack of appropriate conservation measures.

Mozambique

Northern Mozambique is one of the least studied areas in Africa in terms of biodiversity, leading to a recent initiative to find Key Biodiversity Areas (KBA) for Mozambique (WCS-Mozambique, 2019) to require the assessment of the IUCN status of possible “trigger species” prior to the KBA assessment process.

Harris Wei-Khang Heng

Malaysia

We have conducted field surveys from 2016 to 2018 to collect spatio-temporal data on the foraging activities of the endangered dugongs (Dugong dugon) in the Sibu-Tinggi Archipelago. Throughout this sampling period, we have observed that dugong sightings have become increasingly rare and seagrass habitats reducing in extent an abundance.
