AbstractFull Text

The olive ridley (Lepidochelys olivacea) is the most abundant of all seven sea turtles, found across the tropical regions of the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans in over 80 different countries all around the globe. Despite being the most common and widely distributed sea turtle, olive ridley...

AbstractFull Text

Climate change affects animal populations by affecting their habitats. The leopard population has significantly decreased due to climate change and human disturbance. We studied the impact of climate change on leopard habitats using infrared camera technology in the Liupanshan National Nature...

Abstract

Dolphins living in coastal areas are challenged by many anthropogenic activities, including habitat modification, boating and fishing, and introduction of toxic chemicals. This report reviews threats to Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops aduncus) in the Adelaide Dolphin Sanctuary (ADS),...

Abstract

While estuaries are considered valuable nurseries for many harvested fish species, little quantitative data exist about the spatial scales over which estuaries supply individuals to coastal reefs and how this influences coastal metapopulations. Quantifying this connectivity between estuaries and...

Abstract

New methods are required for biomonitoring of poorly known tropical ecosystems, but biological assessments of environmental status are limited by insufficient information on taxonomy, composition and ecology of local communities. The current work applies DNA-based assessment to establish the impact ...

Abstract

Across many temperate coastlines worldwide, kelp habitat has degraded to be replaced by alternative reef-states with consequences to ecosystem functioning. Identifying both causes of decline and mechanisms of resilience of remnant kelp habitat is critical for managing and restoring these...

Abstract

Although matrix improvement in fragmented landscapes is a promising conservation measure, matrix permeability (willingness of an organism to enter the matrix) and movement survival in the matrix are usually aggregated. Consequently, it is unknown which matrix property needs to be improved. It also...

Abstract

Soil biological properties are good indicators for the evaluation of soil quality, introduced as key indicators in soil health, which is in line with the nutrient cycles in terrestrial ecosystems. To the best of the authors' knowledge, responses of belowground biota to habitat degradation have...

Abstract

The human population is increasingly reliant on the marine environment for food, trade, tourism, transport, communication and other vital ecosystem services. These services require extensive marine infrastructure, all of which have direct or indirect ecological impacts on marine environments. The...

Abstract

The diversity of dragonflies on an island is strongly influenced by habitat degradation, as well as the size and distance from the mainland. Therefore, this study aims to analyze the species diversity of dragonflies in the Sangihe Islands, North Sulawesi, Indonesia. It was carried out in five types ...
