Geographical variation of the skull morphology of the common tree shrew (Tupaia glis). (1/90)

Geographical variation was examined morphologically in the common tree shrew (Tupaia glis) in some Indochinese and Malayan regions. Osteometrical examination and principal component analysis elucidated the morphological differences among various populations. The populations from southern and western Thailand were distinguished morphologically from the other populations. Variation in males from south Thailand and Kuala Lumpur suggests that the Isthmus of Kra may have an influence on the variation of skull morphology. However, the Isthmus of Kra was not completely considered as a factor of geographical separation in this species, because we could not confirm the separation in skull size and shape between the localities at least in females. While, the Kanchanaburi population in western Thailand was significantly smaller than the other population in skull size, and constituted the morphologically separable group in our study.  (+info)

Repercussions of El Nino: drought causes extinction and the breakdown of mutualism in Borneo. (2/90)

Figs (Ficus spp.) and their species-specific pollinators, the fig wasps (Agaonidae), have coevolved one of the most intricate interactions found in nature, in which the fig wasps, in return for pollination services, raise their offspring in the fig inflorescence. Fig wasps, however, have very short adult lives and hence are dependent on the near-continuous production of inflorescences to maintain their populations. From January to March 1998 northern Borneo suffered a very severe drought linked to the El Nino-Southern Oscillation event of 1997-1998. This caused a substantial break in the production of inflorescences on dioecious figs and led to the local extinction of their pollinators at Lambir Hills National Park, Sarawak, Malaysia. Most pollinators had not recolonized six months after the drought and, given the high level of endemism and wide extent of the drought, some species may be totally extinct. Cascading effects on vertebrate seed dispersers, for which figs are often regarded as keystone resources, and the tree species dependent on their services are also likely. This has considerable implications for the maintenance of biodiversity under a scenario of climate change and greater climatic extremes.  (+info)

Speciation and intrasubspecific variation of Bornean orangutans, Pongo pygmaeus pygmaeus. (3/90)

Mitochondrial DNA control region sequences of orangutans (Pongo pygmaeus) from six different populations on the island of Borneo were determined and analyzed for evidence of regional diversity and were compared separately with orangutans from the island of Sumatra. Within the Bornean population, four distinct subpopulations were identified. Furthermore, the results of this study revealed marked divergence, supportive evidence of speciation between Sumatran and Bornean orangutans. This study demonstrates that, as an entire population, Bornean orangutans have not experienced a serious genetic bottleneck, which has been suggested as the cause of low diversity in humans and east African chimpanzees. Based on these new data, it is estimated that Bornean and Sumatran orangutans diverged approximately 1.1 MYA and that the four distinct Bornean populations diverged 860,000 years ago. These findings have important implications for management, breeding, and reintroduction practices in orangutan conservation efforts.  (+info)

Sylvatic transmission of arboviruses among Bornean orangutans. (4/90)

Wild populations of nonhuman primates live in regions of sylvatic arbovirus transmission. To assess the status of arbovirus transmission in Bornean forests and the susceptibility of wild orangutans to arboviral infection, blood samples of wild orangutans, semi-captive orangutans, and humans were examined. Samples were tested by plaque reduction neutralization test for antibodies to viruses representing three families (Flaviviridae, Alphaviridae, and Bunyaviridae), including dengue-2, Japanese encephalitis, Zika, Langat, Tembusu, Sindbis, Chikungunya, and Batai viruses. Both wild and semi-captive orangutan groups as well as local human populations showed serologic evidence of arbovirus infection. The presence of neutralizing antibodies among wild orangutans strongly suggests the existence of sylvatic cycles for dengue, Japanese encephalitis, and sindbis viruses in North Borneo. The present study demonstrates that orangutans are susceptible to arboviralinfections in the wild, although the impact of arboviral infections on this endangered ape remain unknown.  (+info)

Dental transfigurements in Borneo. (5/90)

Dental transfigurement, formerly termed dental mutilation, has been practised by many societies worldwide. This article gives many of the forms that have been attributed to the indigenes of the island of Borneo. The method has been performed by review of anthropological books, sparse dental references, Borneo research literature, and popular writing.  (+info)

The effects of selective logging on the distribution of moths in a Bornean rainforest. (6/90)

The effects of selective logging on the diversity and species composition of moths were investigated by sampling from multiple sites in primary forest, both understorey and canopy, and logged forest at Danum Valley, Sabah, Malaysia. The diversity of individual sites was similar, although rarefied species richness of logged forest was 17% lower than for primary forest (understorey and canopy combined). There was significant heterogeneity in faunal composition and measures of similarity (NESS index) among primary forest understorey sites which may be as great as those between primary understorey and logged forest. The lowest similarity values were between primary forest understorey and canopy, indicating a distinct canopy fauna. A number of species encountered in the logged forest were confined to, or more abundant in, the canopy of primary forest. Approximately 10% of species were confined to primary forest across a range of species' abundances, suggesting this is a minimum estimate for the number of species lost following logging. The importance of accounting for heterogeneity within primary forest and sampling in the canopy when measuring the effects of disturbance on tropical forest communities are emphasized.  (+info)

The ecoclimatology of Danum, Sabah, in the context of the world's rainforest regions, with particular reference to dry periods and their impact. (7/90)

Climatic records for Danum for 1985-1998, elsewhere in Sabah since 1879, and long monthly rainfall series from other rainforest locations are used to place the climate, and particularly the dry period climatology, of Danum into a world rainforest context. The magnitude frequency and seasonality of dry periods are shown to vary greatly within the world's rainforest zone. The climate of Danum, which is aseasonal but subject, as in 1997-1998, to occasional drought, is intermediate between less drought-prone north-western Borneo and the more drought-prone east coast. Changes through time in drought magnitude frequency in Sabah and rainforest locations elsewhere in South-East Asia and in the Neotropics are compared. The 1997-1998 ENSO-related drought event in Sabah is placed into a historical context. The effects of drought on tree growth and mortality in the tropics are assessed and a model relating intensity and frequency of drought disturbance to forest structure and composition is discussed.  (+info)

Orangutan cultures and the evolution of material culture. (8/90)

Geographic variation in some aspects of chimpanzee behavior has been interpreted as evidence for culture. Here we document similar geographic variation in orangutan behaviors. Moreover, as expected under a cultural interpretation, we find a correlation between geographic distance and cultural difference, a correlation between the abundance of opportunities for social learning and the size of the local cultural repertoire, and no effect of habitat on the content of culture. Hence, great-ape cultures exist, and may have done so for at least 14 million years.  (+info)

New research from the University of Minnesotas Institute on the Environment and Stanford University shows that freshwater stream ecosystems are highly vulnerable to oil palm plantation expansion.. The three-year study compared streams draining watersheds dominated by four land uses - intact forest, manually logged forest, community agroforest and oil palm plantation - in West Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo, which is ground zero for palm oil production.. Kimberly Carlson, an IonE postdoctoral scholar and lead author on the study, says the research yielded some unexpected findings. "First, oil palm plantation land use seems to have a greater effect on streams than community agroforest or low-impact logging." Researchers were also surprised to discover that a stream in a mature, closed-canopy oil palm plantation was almost as hot as, and yielded even more sediment than, a stream draining a watershed recently cleared for oil palm..

According to one study, the putative ancestral primate chromosome 3 homolog is conserved in the Brown lemur, from which a pericentric inversion led to the ancestral Old World primate homolog conserved in the Bornean orangutan (49). Human/African ape homologs would differ from this chromosome form by two inversions. An even more complex scenario involving several recurrent sites of new centromere seeding was proposed by Ventura et al. (50), according to which human and Bornean orangutan would differ by three inversions. A third hypothesis suggested that from the ancestral simian homolog a common derived and two independent inversions would lead to Bornean orangutan and human chromosome 3 homologs (51). In conclusion, the evolutionary history of human chromosome 3 is probably the most dynamic and complex of all human chromosomes studied in detail so far.. ...

Parasite data were collected from unlogged and selectively logged lowland rain forests in Borneo. Scat from a female Viverra tangalunga (Malay civet) in the unlogged forest contained eggs of Capillaria spp., Trichuris sp., Mamomoganomus sp., and nematode larvae. Scat attributed to V. tangalunga contained reproductive products (eggs/oocysts/cysts/larvae) of Capillaria sp., Toxocara sp., Ancylostoma sp. (probably A. ceylanicum), Isospora spp., strongylate-type eggs (probably Ancylostoma spp.), Paragoni- mus sp. and other Trematoda eggs, Monocystis sp. cysts, Gnathostoma sp. (probably G. spinigerum), the lungworm Viverrostrongylus brauni, pinworm-type eggs, Eimeria spp., Sarcocystis-type sporocyst, dermanysid mites and mesostigmatid mites. Parasites from gut samples from two Hemigalus derbyanus (banded palm civets) road kills included Capil- laria sp., other trematode eggs, Demodex-type eggs, Ascarid-type eggs and pinworm-type eggs. Gut contents from a Pardoxurus
The fanged frog Limnonetces kuhlii is known to be cryptic as seen in the dynamic of species delineation among the complexes. Yet no historical demographic and genetic structure has been fully documented for this species. We investigate historical events, diversification and dispersal of the Bornean Limnonectes kuhlii Complex via Mitochondrial DNA of partial 16S rRNA. Haplotype graphical network, demographic history, neutrality test and population subdivision analysis were used to assess population genetic of the species. Two haplogroups were detected distinct within population and panmictic from East and West of Lupar gap (Batang Ai). The Lupar gap has become the geographical barrier that restricts gene flow from western and eastern populations. Ragged multimodal mismatch distribution, long terminal branches and high mutational site of network showing population in Sarawak and Sabah were rarely migrate and low gene flow. Surprisingly, most of L. kuhlii population showed population constriction ...

Adult male orangutans exhibit two modes of physical development, flanged and unflanged. Flanged adult males have a variety of secondary sexual characteristics, including cheek pads (called "flanges"), throat pouch, and long fur, that are absent from both adult females and from unflanged males. Flanged males establish and protect territories that do not overlap with other flanged males territories. Adult females, juveniles, and unflanged males do not have established territories. A flanged males mating strategy involves establishing and protecting a territory, advertising his presence, and waiting for receptive females to find him. Unflanged males are also able to reproduce; their mating strategy involving finding females in estrus and forcing copulation. Males appear to remain in the unflanged state until they are able to establish and defend a territory, at which point they can make the transition from unflanged to flanged within a few months. The two reproductive strategies, referred to as ...

The Gomantong Caves in Borneo are the type of place that makes most people want to tuck their socks into their pants and run the other way. First imagine the amount of feces that millions of bats and swiftlets produce … and then imagine how many feces-feasting bugs that would attract. And thats exactly what you have to walk through in order to explore what some have dubbed the Cockroach Cave.Cave ecologist and National Geographic grantee Donald McFarlane says he finds the bird and bat guano spectacular because of all the life it sustains. The cockroaches are innumerable, he says, and in some places their numbers are so dense that there is almost no space between one cockroach and the next.Cockroaches arent the only frights in the cave. Injured or dying birds and bats, as well as a mix of living and dead flies, ticks, and other bugs, rain down from above. Expedition member Keith Christenson says that while working in caves, scientists also need to be on high alert for wheelbarrow-loads of

Forest and peatland fires in Indonesia emit large quantities of smoke leading to poor air quality across Equatorial Asia. Marlier et al (2015 Environ. Res. Lett. 10 085005) explore the contribution of fires occurring on oil palm, timber (wood pulp and paper) and natural forest logging concessions to smoke emissions and exposure of human populations to the resulting air pollution. They find that one third of the population exposure to smoke across Equatorial Asia is caused by fires in oil palm and timber concessions in Sumatra and Kalimantan. Logging concessions have substantially lower fire emissions, and contribute less to air quality degradation. This represents a compelling justification to prevent reclassification of logging concessions into oil palm or timber concessions after logging. This can be achieved by including logged forests in the Indonesian moratorium on new plantations in forested areas.. ...
Waidi, meanwhile, described the royal couples visit as "successful and beneficial".. "The Duke of Cambridge did say that his father (Prince Charles) has a soft spot for the rainforest.. "To me, the visit was both successful and beneficial as it will now lift the Danum Valley Conservation Area to a higher level. It is truly a recognition to the joint effort by Yayasan Sabah and the Royal Society, especially to our conservation works.. "We believe what has and being done here is important and is globally significant … and I believe that was what attracted the royal couple to come to this part of the world," he said.. After spending about three hours at the Danum Valley Conservation Area, the Royal couple took off for the Borneo Rainforest Lodges 300 metres canopy walk, before adjourning to a private lunch at the lodge.. ...
VANCOUVER, BC -- Victor Jones, Chairman, reports that the Company, through its Malian subsidiary, has entered into an agreement with a private Malian company to acquire a 97% interest in the 320 sq km Tarkint Est concession in eastern Mali. The new concession is to the north of and contiguous with the Companys 88% held Tin Hina concession, on which the Company has completed an initial sampling and mapping program, as reported September 3, 2009. The new concession covers several potential phosphate occurrences, including the Chanamaguel, Tagit NOuerane and Tin Siriden phosphate zones. Combined, the two concessions cover a total of 737 sq km in the Tilemsi Valley known for its occurrences of Natural Phosphate of Tilemsi, a direct application natural fertilizer for agricultural purposes.. Within the Tarkint Est concession, the phosphate occurs in one extensive sedimentary bed within an Eocene sequence of flat-lying sedimentary rock, which dips gently to the west. The phosphate occurs mainly in ...
Most of his figures are of a gibbon identified as Hylobates concolor (Harlan) from Borneo. The species name is still in use for Nomascus concolor, which is not found on Borneo.

Harlan described his ape as a hermaphrodite orangutan from Borneo; in fact it was a juvenile gibbon from Indochina! ...

Fluctuating exchange rates also affect the cost of imported materials and equipment used in construction projects. Where the exchange rate falls against the currency of the supplier country, the cost of imports in the local currency is higher and pushes up construction costs.. The US dollar appreciated significantly against many currencies, while the currencies of some commodity exporters rose off the back of the improving prices of commodities during 2016. When the dollar is compared against a weighted average of foreign exchange values, it appreciated by 5.6 percent since June 2016.. In contrast, the euro and Japanese yen both weakened against the US dollar. In emerging markets, the Turkish lira and Mexican peso were some of the worst performing currencies, so comparative costs in all of these depreciating regions fell when converted to US dollars for comparison.. We continue to use three construction cost comparison methodologies to ensure our findings deliver accuracy and insight. This is ...
Apis koschevnikovi, Koschevnikovs bee, is a species of honey bee which inhabits Malaysian and Indonesian Borneo, where it lives sympatrically with other honey bee species such as Apis cerana (specifically A. c. nuluensis). The species was first described by Hugo Berthold von Buttel-Reepen, who dedicated it to Grigory Aleksandrovich Kozhevnikov (1866-1933), a pioneer of honey bee morphology. This was an invalid designation, however, and the name was first formally made available by Günther Enderlein that same year. Therefore, Buttel-Reepen is not the author of the name (following the ICZN). The species was described again by Maa in 1953, this time with the name Apis vechti. It was finally rediscovered by Tingek and his colleagues in 1988. Apis koschevnikovi is of the family Apidae and genus Apis. A. koschevnikovi is known as one of the "Red Bees" of Borneo, described in 1988. A. koschevnikovi appears together with A. cerana and A. mellifera, two other cavity-nesting species, in three separate ...
Our understanding of the Sunda Clouded Leopards population density on Borneo, and particularly in the Malaysian state of Sabah, has improved in recent years, with the advent of intensive, targeted camera traps surveys, analysed within a capture-recapture framework. Population density estimates from a range of forest types and elevations, and a gradient of disturbance are typically low (0.8 - 4.4 ind. / 100 km², with 6 of 10 surveys providing estimates of under 1.9 ind. / 100 km². All estimates from Sabah were derived using a spatially explicit capture recapture framework (SECR), from primary Dipterocarp forest, including lowland (Maliau Basin Conservation Area, 1.9 ind. / 100 km²: Brodie and Giordano 2012, Danum Valley Conservation Area, 1.76 ind. / 100 km²: Hearn, Ross and Macdonald unpublished data), upland (Tawau Hills National Park, 1.85 ind. / 100 km²: Hearn, Ross and Macdonald unpublished data) and submontane/montane (Crocker Range National Park, 1.4 ind. / 100 km²: Hearn, Ross and ...
Recently, the Bear Specialist Group mapped the current, range-wide distribution of sun bears. Important habitat blocks for long-term survival of sun bears were identified (Bear Conservation Units-BCUs). Anti-poaching efforts within these BCUs should be a high priority. Trends in bear occurrence and relative abundance within BCUs could be monitored using standardized sign surveys and camera trapping. Results of such monitoring could indicate which management or ecological conditions promote successful bear conservation, and which do not, and provide a means to assess the results of conservation efforts (e.g., future range expansion and/or increased bear density being indicative of effective conservation efforts). Additional field studies also would be helpful in this regard; few intensive studies have been conducted on this species ...

Does it seem like people always say the say exact thing over and over again, if not everyday, but at discrete intervals, like, say. . .every three days. . .always repeating themselves because it must seem like the thing to do cause, after all. . .nothing new happens under the sun. Everything repeats repeats repeats itself, always. Like Groundhog Day. People always do this I notice. Always saying, "Boy, this week sure went by quickly. Did it seem fast to you?" (This is what one of my co-workers says every single week without fail on Thursday night.) Its like clockwork, predictable clockwork. Not talking cuckoo clockwork, but atomic clock thinking here. I mean, people always say the same things. Is there nothing else going on in the Universe? There must be. If not here, then in some obscure place like Borneo. Actually, I think people repeat themselves much more in Borneo. After all, theyre barely out of the Stone Age in Borneo and I know things havent changed much over there ...

Long Laput (also known as Laput) is a settlement in the rural interior of the Marudi division of Sarawak, Malaysia. It lies approximately 514.3 kilometres (320 mi) east-north-east of the state capital Kuching. Long Laput is one of the biggest villages along the Baram River and the majority of the inhabitants belong to the Kayan tribe. The estimated population is 2000 people, most of whom live in longhouses. In the late 1950s the main longhouse was reputed to be the longest in Borneo, being 700 metres in length. The main source of income is agriculture, including rice, pepper, rubber and increasingly palm oil; one oil palm estate extends to 2500 acres. Livestock include freshwater fish farming and cattle which graze the oil palm plantation. The history of the village dates back at least to the 1920s, but a significant change started in 1950 with the arrival of the Borneo Evangelical Church, followed by Roman Catholics in 1956. Schools were built in 1956 and a health clinic was opened in the ...
Current understanding of greenhouse gas (GHG) fluxes associated with land-use change from forest to oil palm on mineral soil is not sufficient to provide reliable estimates of emission rates or advice on GHG mitigation strategies. Monocultures of oil palm have expanded in Southeast Asia, mostly replacing tropical forests. The limited data available have indicated that the land-use conversion is associated with a potentially aggravated GHG burden, including nitrous oxide (N2O) and nitric oxide (NO) emissions, with unclear underlying biological mechanisms. In this study, we investigated N2O and NO emission potentials of tropical soils with different land-uses from Sabah, Malaysian Borneo, under laboratory incubation. Under similar controlled conditions, logged forest and oil palm soils showed high and similar potentials of N2O and NO emissions following increase in soil moisture, while the emissions were negligible in a riparian reserve soil irrespective of moisture conditions. Soil N2O and NO emission
SIBU: The people here are urged to vaccinate their pets to prevent the spread of rabies.. Bukit Assek assemblywomen Irene Chang, in a press statement received here yesterday, said a mass free anti-rabies vaccination is being held at various locations here by the Veterinary Services Department from Jan 20 till March 1.. "Everyone should play a part to keep rabies at bay. The dreadful disease has already reached Sarikei and Julau.". Chang said she was dismayed that even though the free vaccinations had been offered, the response was lukewarm.. According to Assistant Minister of Housing and Public Health Dr Annuar Rapaee, this was due to the lack of publicity and public ignorance.. "I agree so. Since the disease first struck in Kuching last year, I have called for more awareness campaigns to be held to educate the people," Chang said.. One such campaign was held at the Residents Office here on Aug 5.. However, only government servants and community leaders were invited.. "As far as I know, no ...
FLEAS and ticks have more than left their marks upon humans, birds and animals. We may see dogs and cats scratching, as, indeed, we ourselves do, when bitten by these creatures. Holly, my dog, certainly picks up fleas and ticks when on summertime walks with me in the meadows surrounding my house. Daily I inspect her for both parasites and remove them from her underbelly and ears where hair is less obvious.. I use a well-tested method to catch them in using a paper towel soaked in surgical spirit, which I dab on a running flea or a ticks body. The surgical spirit temporarily paralyses the flea so that I can catch it with my fingers and then, using my nails, squash it.. The absorption of the surgical spirit forces the tick to release its claws, which are embodied in my dogs skin, and the whole tick can be easily and painlessly removed. Again my fingernails provide the final solution.. In Kuching, when I see stray cats and dogs scratching their coats, I am tempted to give them a spray of surgical ...

If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Francis Pope.. Organic aerosols in the atmosphere are one of the largest uncertainties in trying to predict climate change. Their formation processes are poorly understood and recent evidence has shown that even volatile compounds not expected to have a role in particle formation may be a significant source of secondary organic aerosols. One of the difficulties in trying to study SOA is the huge number of compounds present. This talk will highlight some of our recent advances in understanding aerosol formation, properties and sources using state of the art chromatographic techniques. We have simulated organic aerosol in smog chambers and compared this to urban, marine and tropical environments using high resolution two dimensional gas chromatography (GCXGC) and liquid chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry (LC-MS)..

The Bacter Crystal is a substrate additive and at the same time a water conditioner which improves soil condition, water quality, health and growth of the organism and colonizes the filter system with beneficial bacteria. Unlike many other products which contains many species of dormant bacteria that may not get fully activated, Bacter Crystal uses only species which can survive in packaging, storage and be activated fully.. Bacter Crystal contains an extremely high concentration of bacteria in dormant state, approximately 1.5x10^9 CFU per 1gram. When laid beneath the gravel, the bacteria forms a microorganism layer which prevents the growth of anaerobic species that causes smelly and blacken substate. This allows aquatic plants to develop their roots properly and thus, grow healthily. It accelerates organic decomposition and supplies enzyme which activates the growth of other beneficial bacteria in the filter. It is able to remove organic C, NH3, NH4, NO2 and even NO3 which few other species of ...

IAPWA recently conducted a public opinion survey to better understand peoples perception towards street dogs in Kota Kinabalu.. All those surveyed agreed that there was a stray dog problem in the city and wanted to see a reduction in the number of strays on the streets of Kota Kinabalu. Many viewed the dogs as being a nuisance and the majority of complaints related to noise, fouling and disturbing rubbish bags outside properties while the dogs tried to find something to eat.. Although all of those surveyed wanted the street dogs to be neutered and rehomed, no one who took part in the research said they would be open to rehoming a dog and this highlights the imbalance with what people define as being the ideal solution and the reality.. This is where the challenge lies as IAPWA now needs to increase the number of people looking to rehome whilst also improving the perception of stray dogs on the street.. It also remains an ongoing challenge to ensure the welfare of each dog it releases back to ...

Those early orders were sent two months before the festival. And price is not the first concern of pet owners. They care more about whether the pets stay comfortable and healthy," she said.. The booming need for pet foster service is also seen in other places, such as Beijing and southern Guangdong province.. Doggyhome in a southern suburb of Beijing covers an area of about 0.66 hectares. It owns about 200 rooms for the temporary care of pets, mostly dogs.. Each room is 15 square metres and has an additional small yard in front. Open grassland toward the front gate is provided for pets to play outside.. "Foster service is about 110 yuan per night during Spring Festival, double the usual because of the growing need and a lack of dog trainers," said Yuan Ruizhen, the businesss receptionist.. In Guangzhou, an anonymous worker in RingPai National Chain Veterinary Hospital said many pet owners require caregivers to send pictures or video of their pets every day, and some owners even prepare canned ...
I would, however, like something that remotely resembles stylish. I have found approximately three black dresses that are simply fabulous, and I may resort to wearing them to work every day of the week. Perhaps it can be my maternity "uniform," as thought I am a pregnant Steve Jobs. But really, would it be so much trouble for you to make a stretchy, knee-length black skirt, perhaps cut on the bias? A stylish, monochromatic wardrobe of pencil skirts and decent pants and sweater sets, with the occasional pleasant color or vibrant-yet-sophisticated pattern mixed in? A jacket or two that could be worn to a business meeting, in a fabric other than the dreaded polyester? Something classic, something that works in a conservative office where people still actually wear suits to work? In short, business attire that doesnt make me feel--and look!--like a frumpy housewife from middleAmerica who doesnt belong behind my desk ...

Bornean Clouded Leopard (Neofelis diardi borneensis) researchers campsite in lowland rainforest, Tawau Hills Park, Sabah, Borneo, Malaysia
Understanding the habitat preferences of native and non-native species may offer valuable insights into the mechanisms favouring invasion of disturbed habitats. This study investigated the determinants of trap-site detection probability of three native (Maxomys surifer, Maxomys whiteheadi and Leopoldamys sabanus) and one invasive (Rattus rattus) species of terrestrial murid (Muridae) in logged and unlogged forests of northern Borneo. We established four and two trapping grids in repeatedly logged and unlogged forest, respectively, for a total of 500 sampled trap sites. From these, we obtained 504 detections of the four species over 3420 trap nights. For each species, probability of detection was modelled as a function of both the structural components and disturbance level of the forest patch measured around each trap site. Each of the four species showed contrasting microhabitat preferences: M. surifer favoured increased canopy closure and intermediate ground and understorey vegetation cover; ...

Some phylogenetic studies suggest that Xenophidiidae and Bolyeriidae might be sister to Caenophidia, leading some to call these two families "proto-colubroids". However, other genetic analyses group them with boas, pythons, and other "henophidian" snakes instead. Hopefully further gene sequencing will sort this out, and of course fresh Xenophidion specimens wouldnt hurt. The forestry station where Inger collected X. acanthognathus is still operational and researchers continue to work there-I hope they know to keep their eyes open for small, strange snakes. Unfortunately, the primary forest where X. schaeferi was collected was cleared two years later and is now a banana plantation. Both peninsular Malaysia and Borneo are losing their forests to timber harvesting and oil palm plantations at an alarming rate. People get upset when they learn that deforestation endangers charismatic species such as orangutans, leading to efforts to make palm oil production more sustainable. This is really ...

There is high diversity of vector species on the major islands. For example, in Sumatra, An. sinensis is found inland along with the An. barbirostris complex, An. leucosphyrus/An. latens and the An. minimus complex. A number of other vector species also exist on Sumatra but none are considered dominant on the island; hence they are over- laid by the other, more dominant species. Alongside the An. sundaicus complex distributed along the coast, An. flavirostris does increase in relative dominance, by virtue of a reduced presence of other species, extending southward through Java until it is the only dominant vector species found in the Lesser Sunda islands. In Sumatra, there is very little overlap amongst the dominant species found, suggesting that each occupies a separate niche. Anopheles balabacensis dominates across most of Borneo, with some impact by the An. barbirostris complex and An. leucosphyrus/latens inland and the An. sundaicus complex on the coast. This APMEN profile gives more ...
The use of water for agriculture is primarily governed by the National Waters Law.[4] This Law provides that, as a general rule, Mexican waters are national property and, consequently, their use is administered and allocated by concessions granted by the federal government through its National Water Commission.[5] Some waters may be subject to private property provided that applicable rules are met.[6]. A. Concessions Water concessions must indicate the amount of water authorized for extraction, the specific use for such water, the location of the point of extraction, and the term of the concession.[7] A concession may be granted for a term of five to thirty years, and may be extended if a request for its extension is made at least six months before the expiration of the concession.[8].

The Deep Skull from Niah Cave in Sarawak (Malaysia) is the oldest anatomically modern human recovered from island Southeast Asia. For more than 50 years its relevance to tracing the prehistory of the region has been controversial. The most widely held view, originating with Brothwells 1960 description and analysis, is that the Niah individual is related to Indigenous Australians. Here we undertake a new assessment of the Deep Skull and consider its bearing on this question. In doing so, we provide a new and comprehensive description of the cranium including a reassessment of its ontogenetic age, sex, morphology and affinities. We conclude that this individual was most likely to have been of advanced age and female, rather than an adolescent male as originally proposed. The morphological evidence strongly suggests that the Deep Skull samples the earliest modern humans to have settled Borneo, most likely originating on mainland East Asia. We also show that the affinities of the specimen are most likely

Not too long ago, after giving a discuss at a conference in Hong Kong, I spent a while resting in my room on the 41st floor of the Renaissance Harbour View Hotel gazing at the mountains-in-the-making across the way in Kowloon, and questioned how far away may I discover the true thing. An unfurl of the map confirmed that the very best mountain between the Himalayas and New Guinea was Mount Kinabalu, thirteen,455 ft, within the Malaysian state of Sabah on the island of Borneo, simply three hours flight to the southeast. Climbing a mountain without an elevator was strictly against doctors orders, as two weeks earlier I had undergone surgery, an inguinal hernia restore, and was instructed to lay low. However, researching Mt. Kinabalu I found the summit was referred to as Lows Peak, after the European who first climbed the mountain in the center nineteenth century. The weekend was nigh, so the following morning I used to be on an Malaysia Airways flight to the state capital of Kota Kinabalu, just ...

The families live within a large poor urban community, Borei Keila, which the government designated as a so-called social land concession for residential development in 2003. Poor, homeless families are the primary beneficiaries of social land concessions, according to the 2003 Sub-Decree on Social Land Concessions. In the case of Borei Keila social land concession it was intended to be implemented as a land-sharing arrangement between a private developer, the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport, and residents. The agreement gave the developer 2.6 hectares of the land in Borei Keila for commercial development, in exchange for constructing new housing for the original over 1,700 residents on two hectares of the land. The remainder, consisting of 10 hectares, was to be returned to the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport ...

Intact dipterocarp forests in Asia act as crucial carbon (C) reservoirs, and it is therefore important to investigate the C dynamics in these forests. We estimated C dynamics, together with net ecosystem production (NEP), in an intact tropical dipterocarp forest of Brunei Darussalam. Fifty-four simulation units (plots; 20 m × 20 m) were established and initial C stocks were determined via direct field measurement. The C dynamics were annually simulated with a regression model and the Forest Biomass and Dead organic matter Carbon (FBDC) model. The initial C stock (Mg C·ha−1) of biomass, litter, dead wood and mineral soil were 213.1 ± 104.8, 2.0 ± 0.8, 31.3 ± 38.8, and 80.7 ± 15.5, respectively. Their annual changes (Mg C·ha−1·year−1) were 3.2 ± 1.1, 0.2 ± 0.2, −3.7 ± 6.1, and −0.3 ± 1.1, respectively. NEP was −0.6 ± 6.1 Mg C·ha−1·year−1, showing large heterogeneity among the plots.

Introduction: Infectious keratitis is caused by inflammation of the cornea from an infectious pathogen that usually results in corneal scarring. It is a major cause of visual impairment globally. The management of infectious keratitis is challenging, and unfortunately, there is no proper study on this issue in the central zone of Sarawak to date.. Purpose: To identify the demographic characteristics, risk factors, and etiological agents of patients with infectious keratitis in Sibu Hospital, Sarawak, Malaysia.. Design of the study: Retrospective study.. Materials and methods: Data were collected and reviewed from medical records of all patients with infectious keratitis in Sibu Hospital from January 2013 up to May 2018.. Results: A total of 139 patients (143 eyes/cases) were included in the study. The average age of affected individuals was 47.39 years. The most frequently affected patients fell within the age group of 21-30 years (18.9%). The male-to-female ratio was 1.65:1, with 61.5% of ...
United Airlines said Wednesday it would be forced to file for bankruptcy protection this fall unless its labor unions agreed to significant concessions within the next 30 days. Just three days after US Airways filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and a day after American Airlines announced deep cutbacks, Uniteds warning underscored how the aftermath of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks continued to roil the industry. The warning was a stark message to Uniteds unions to cooperate in belt- tightening but also a signal to the government of the airlines urgent efforts to land $1.8 billion in federal loan guarantees, experts said. A bankruptcy filing by United, the nations second largest carrier and the dominant presence at San Francisco International Airport, would have minimal or no impact on passengers, tickets or frequent flier miles, industry watchers said. Bankruptcy would be a nonevent from the standpoint of their customers, said Alan Gover, a Houston attorney who represented creditors during
Prokaryotes are the most abundant and diverse group of microorganisms in soil and mediate virtually all biogeochemical cycles in terrestrial ecosystems. Thereby, they influence aboveground plant productivity and diversity. In this study, the impact of rainforest transformation to intensively managed cash crop systems on soil prokaryotic communities was investigated. The studied managed land use systems comprised rubber agroforests (jungle rubber), rubber plantations and oil palm plantations within two Indonesian landscapes Bukit Duabelas and Harapan. Soil prokaryotic community composition and diversity were assessed by pyrotag sequencing of bacterial and archaeal 16S rRNA genes. The curated dataset contained 16,413 bacterial and 1679 archaeal operational taxonomic units at species level (97% genetic identity). Analysis revealed changes in indigenous taxon-specific patterns of soil prokaryotic communities accompanying lowland rainforest transformation to jungle rubber, and intensively managed ...
