The study quantified mammal numbers in forests and landscapes with varying degrees of human impact in Malaysian Borneo.

Pipelines, roads, railways and transmission lines cause severe habitat fragmentation in the Amazon rainforest.

Glyphosate is the most widely used herbicide worldwide. It is a broad spectrum herbicide and its agricultural uses increased considerably after the development of glyphosate-resistant genetically modified (GM) varieties. Since glyphosate was introduced in 1974, all regulatory assessments have established that glyphosate has low hazard potential to mammals, however, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) concluded in March 2015 that it is probably carcinogenic.

The majority of the world's terrestrial large carnivores have undergone substantial range contractions and many of these species are currently threatened with extinction. However, there has been little effort to fully quantify the extent of large carnivore range contractions, which hinders our ability to understand the roles and relative drivers of such trends. Here we present and analyse a newly constructed and comprehensive set of large carnivore range contraction maps.

The strong focus on species extinctions, a critical aspect of the contemporary pulse of biological extinction, leads to a common misimpression that Earth’s biota is not immediately threatened, just slowly entering an episode of major biodiversity loss. This view overlooks the current trends of population declines and extinctions.

The stability of Cape Town's climate on the southern tip of Africa has enabled it to become home to approximately 3000 species of plants, 361 species of birds and 83 species of mammals.

RUMAH KINANGKUNG — Authorities were explaining the rules governing protected animals to residents of this North Sumatran village when a man appeared, carrying a small, scaly creature by the tail.

After quantifying the extent of habitat fragmentation faced by 4,000 mammal species, researchers found higher levels of fragmentation predict greater risk of extinction.

A new study reveals that the loss of larger animals in tropical forests diminishes the overall ecosystem biodiversity because of subtle interactions involving those animals and the evolutionary str

For the first time in two decades, cheetahs are wandering in Malawi as the African Parks has reintroduced four cheetahs to Liwonde National Park.
