This is not really a proper post. It’s just here to highlight the great news article by Nature on experiments in tropical forest fragmentation. It backs up what I was saying in my article on the effects of logging on tropical biodiversity and talks a bit more about what the SAFE project is doing in Borneo in testing the effects of oil palm plantations and logging on forest structure and biodiversity. We need more of this kind of work and I’m really interested to see the first results from SAFE.
