Research

Asian biodiversity is threatened by habitat loss and fragmentation. 

In order to mitigate large-scale losses, the development of effective conservation strategies is crucial. This requires a thorough examination of the relationships between species and landscapes.

Research at the centre aims to determine the landscape-level requirements critical for the viable persistence of tropical species in highly fragmented landscapes. 

We use advanced technologies such as camera traps, GPS collars, and drones to explore the survival mechanisms employed by multiple flagship species. Through the knowledge we gain we can develop species action plans and landscape management guidelines for fragmented lowland tropical forests.
