Research Interests

It fascinates me just to think about how complicated a tropical ecosystem is and how difficult/easy it is to maintain its functions. Sad to say, in most regions of the world, small isolated forest fragments will be all that remain in the near future, due to the widespread loss and conversion of habitats.

My study site is a group of forest hilltops that became isolated during the creation of a hydroelectric reservoir two decades ago at Lake Kenyir, Terengganu, Malaysia. I am looking at the impacts of forest fragmentation on the biological richness of selected biotas, such as leaf litter fauna and the dung beetle community, and changes in the ecosystem processes which they take part in, i.e. leaf litter decomposition and dung removal respectively. I hope this will provide more insights on the intricate association between biodiversity and ecosystem functioning.
