SAGE2009 Conference: Southeast Asian Gateway Evolution

SAGE2009 Conference: Southeast Asian Gateway Evolution
14-17 September 2009: Royal Holloway University of London

The Southeast Asian Gateway is the site of the Indonesian Throughflow between the Pacific and Indian Oceans. It is the only low latitude link between the world¢s oceans, and is increasingly regarded as an important influence on global climate. The throughflow passes through the present zone of collision between Australia and SE Asia. The collision began about 25 million years ago, but SE Asia has a long history of growth by the addition of continental fragments rifted from Gondwana dating back to the Palaeozoic. The fauna and flora display a similar complexity which is partly linked to the geology.

ZSL Field Project Manager: Biodiversity and Oil Palm Project

Oil PalmThe Zoological Society of London (ZSL) is an international conservation organisation established in 1826. With a focus on science-based, pragmatic solutions, ZSL’s mission is to achieve and promote the conservation of wildlife and habitats worldwide, and it currently has activities in over thirty countries.

Indonesia is a country in transition. It contains two of the world’s biodiversity hotspots but also more endangered species than any other country. An important factor in the survival of Indonesia’s remaining biodiversity is the burgeoning oil palm industry. On one hand this is an important component of Indonesia’s economy, providing income, jobs and services to many of the poorest rural areas. But on the other it is a major threat to biodiversity, directly and indirectly replacing high-biodiversity tropical forest with low-biodiversity oil palm plantations. This conflict is now being addressed by the Round Table on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) which provides guidelines on how to minimise the impacts of production.
