Project Limestone

Lead Researcher: Liew

Co-researchers:  Junn Kitt and Reuben

Project description: Limestone karsts are renowned for being arks of biodiversity, but are gravely imperilled by mining, which have caused extinctions of animals in Malaysia.

This project aims to collate information from the literature and biodiversity surveys to update our publicly accessible online database that provides fine-scale information on the distribution and biodiversity of limestone karsts in Malaysia.

We hope that this database will help support the protection efforts of specific limestone karsts and their endemic biodiversity.
