KNOWLEDGE CONSOLIDATION WEBINAR SERIES

The first episode of the webinar series aims to identify key biodiversity knowledge gaps, set priorities for research, and explore future investments in biodiversity research and monitoring. The Far Eastern Himalaya Landscape (FEHL) is a biodiversity-rich transboundary landscape that stretches across parts of China, India, and Myanmar. The landscape has diverse flora and fauna from three bio-geographic regions and a high proportion of rare, endemic, vulnerable, and endangered species. It harbours at least 12 Important Bird Areas, 8 of the Global 200 Ecoregions, and is home to at least 240 mammals, 800 bird species, and 6,000 vascular plant species with a high degree of endemism and threatened species. About 50.1% of the landscape is protected (nature reserves, wildlife sanctuaries, and national parks) by the governments of China, India, and Myanmar. The FEHL is also home to diverse ethnic communities with unique sociocultural traditions. Given its significance, this is a priority area for conservation and investments in research and monitoring.
This webinar is open to all researchers, policymakers, practitioners, and funding agencies currently working in or having an interest in the FEHL.
We invite abstracts for the first webinar on 25-26 April 2022. The selected abstracts will be published in a compendium of abstracts and the authors will be asked to present their work during the webinar.
The abstract must be based on scientific work or research conducted at the landscape level and focus on any of the following areas:
