Macrobenthos of mangrove shores in Malaysia by A Sasekumar 1 edition published in in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide The macrobenthos of the mangrove shore in Selangor, Malaysia, consists predominantly of few species of polychaetes 10 spp. The majority of the macrobenthos are deposit feeders or detritus feeders. Stable isotope composition d 13 C of consumer organisms of the mangrove shore supports the results obtained from gut content studies.
Deposit feeding fiddler crabs showed intermediate values between mangrove carbon and algal carbon, thus reflecting a mixed diet from these two sources.

Integrated planning and management of freshwater habitats, including wetlands Pages Burbridge, P. Show next xx. It is also a major illegal wildlife trade conduit. Population growth, poor land-use planning and economic policies have led to deforestation and biodiversity loss across the Greater Mekong region. Loss of forest habitat and biodiversity weakens the region's ability to adapt to the impacts of climate change and puts communities at risk.
Recent expansion in the scale and intensity of these agricultural activities has come with significant costs to the environment. In Cambodia and Laos, a surge of land concessions for agricultural plantations has added pressure on both natural ecosystems and the rural communities that depend upon them. Additionally—because agriculture is often linked to the construction of infrastructure projects like roads, bridges, and dams—it leads to significant secondary impacts on the environment through forest degradation, habitat fragmentation and increased poaching.

With three of the most pristine large rivers and some of the most extensive intact forest in the region, Myanmar is one of the most biologically diverse and ecologically productive nations on Earth.

In recent decades Myanmar has witnessed its neighbors over-exploit their natural wealth, from deforestation to illegal wildlife trade. In , WWF is formally opening an office in Myanmar to ensure its economic growth continues to sustain the lives of people and wildlife. Train Education for Nature Program EFN is offering the best and brightest future conservation leaders from Myanmar the opportunity to pursue graduate-level study anywhere in the world with the goal of advancing conservation.

Construction of new roads is opening the once-remote areas that house these species to human exploration and poaching. WWF partners with local institutions and national governments to establish wildlife habitat protections—strengthening enforcement and limiting encroachments on protected areas. WWF is the only organization working on the Mekong River from source to sea. We support a ten-year delay in the approval of lower Mekong river mainstream dams to ensure a comprehensive understanding of all the impacts of their construction and operation. WWF develops tools to help assess which tributaries can be developed for hydropower without compromising the ecological integrity of the lower Mekong basin.
For example, a key project we are working on uses the best available science to map the entire river system so that we can advise decision makers where not to put a dam. A poorly placed dam will have a domino effect, impacting fish migration and spawning as well as sediment deposition, which in turn affects food security in the region. Anticipated impacts from climate change create an urgent need to address infrastructure development in the region and create climate-proof conservation landscapes. WWF carries out climate change vulnerability assessments in priority landscapes—looking at sectors that deal with food security, migration, disaster relief, as well as more traditional environmental areas.
We help to build a region-wide climate change resilient network for protected areas and corridors. WWF is one of the few international non-governmental organizations that works directly with local communities to restore wetlands and coastal mangroves, prime aquaculture and agricultural lands. These projects will help build resilience to climate change impacts like sea-level rise, and extreme flooding and drought events. Increased global demand for wood products has spurred an aggressive timber industry that operates largely uncontrolled. WWF collaborates with companies, communities and governments to encourage responsible forestry practices that lead to sustainable certification standards.
This approach will enhance local economies, integrate watershed management, conserve biodiversity, and provide a long-term solution on a global scale. At a local level, WWF integrates landscape and land use planning into existing development so that high conservation value forests are protected. We also promote community forestry and community based natural resource management. In Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam, villages rely heavily on the rattan trade roughly species of palms. But rattan has also been depleted from forests at an unnatural rate.
The construction of economic corridors—essentially large infrastructure and energy blocks—is accelerating transboundary trade and commerce.
