Ecology and Conservation of the Amphibians on Mount Kinabalu

Monitoring of amphibians in Southeast Asia is scarce, however the rates of new species descriptions are substantial. This biodiverse region is undergoing high rates of land clearing, which coupled with a changing climate, is expected to have a major impact on amphibians in the region. Over 40% of amphibian species in Borneo alone are listed in one of the IUCN threatened categories, and for the majority there is limited information available on ecology, population numbers, and life history. This thesis investigates; shifts in distribution, ecology, community composition of the amphibian community on Mount Kinabalu in Borneo, Malaysia, as well as the use of automated acoustic techniques for monitoring these communities.
