      A fundamental component of initiatives to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+); will be the development of robust and cost-effective measuring, reporting, and verification (MRV) instruments for national forest monitoring and safeguard information systems. It is increasingly recognized that community-based monitoring (CBM) offers a positive model for greater Practices relating to the integration of crops and trees (agrisilviculture) comprised more than three quarters of the studies on practices. In contrast to the intervention studies, ecosystem services was the most well‐studied practice outcome category, followed by agricultural productivity, with minimal evidence for human well‐being

      Many species of cyanobacteria, different from the species in these aquatic environments, proliferate in paddy fields in the world. For example, Nostoc, Anabaena, Calothrix and Aulosira species are predominant among N 2 ‐fixing cyanobacteria in South and Southeast Asia (Kimura ).   Species extinction is one of the most prominent effects of desertification. Most species are closely tied to their ecological niches, and to the wider environment that they live in. With the loss of their environment, most simply disappear — or, at the least, see a huge drop in their genetic

Alternative livelihood projects are used by a variety of organisations as a tool for achieving biodiversity conservation.

However, despite characterising many conservation approaches, very little is known about what impacts (if any) alternative livelihood projects have had on biodiversity conservation, as well as what determines the relative success or failure of these :// Welcome The Environmental Literacy Council is an independent, non-profit made up of scientists, economists, and educators striving to connect teachers and students to science-based information on environmental issues.

Pest and diseases (P&D) represent a major threat to the world's forests (Flower and Gonzalez-Meler, ; Wingfield et al., ) yet there is a paucity of information on statistical trends on the impact and rate of forest loss caused by P&D (Petrokofsky et al., ).Furthermore, the threat is rising: increasing connectivity between markets through growth in international trade   conservation status of pangolins, and the tangible conservation benefits that could be reaped by engaging researchers, social scientists, biologists, veterinarians and conservation practitioners within a network of expert volunteers under the auspices of an IUCN SSC Specialist Group (see Challender.
