The region contains 20 percent of the planet’s vertebrate and plant species and the world’s third-largest tropical forest. London, 10 December -Southeast Asia is facing a crisis in biodiversity.

Navot Sodhi and colleagues, writing in the December issue of Trends in Ecology and Evolution, warn that, if the present levels of deforestation continue, Southeast Asia could lose three quarters of its forests and up to 42% of its biodiversity by Cambridge Core - Evolutionary Biology - Biotic Evolution and Environmental Change in Southeast Asia - edited by David Gower.

Introduction. Southeast Asia (SE Asia) is a known hotspot of biodiversity, and is of threat. The region is uniquely biologically complex, reflecting its complex biogeography and resulting in zonation of regional biotic patterns and complex biogeographic divides, which require further research to fully understand (Sheldon et al.

).Typically, when people consider SE Asian biodiversity, they. However, Southeast Asia’s biodiversity is under serious threat; some parts of the region are projected to lose up to 98% of their remaining forests in the next nine years.

Southeast Asia is highly diversified in terms of socio-ecosystems and biodiversity, but is undergoing dramatic environmental and social changes.

These changes characterize the recent period and could be illustrated by the effects of the Green Revolution from the late and s to the insertion in the global trade and increasing agronomic.

Hunting constitutes the greatest current threat to the region’s threatened vertebrates and has resulted in many areas of largely intact forest losing much of their former vertebrate diversity and abundance.

Though numerous hunting methods are used. Article content. JAKARTA — Southeast Asia is on the brink of a “socio-economic crisis” caused by the COVID pandemic that could reverse decades of.
