Biodiversity crew alumnus Reuben Clements may be busy tracking rhinos and tigers in the last wilderness of the Malaysian jungle with WWF Malaysia these days, but that does not stop him from finding time to keep going at his primary research!
This month sees a bumper crop of two papers from him and his collaborators.
- Reuben Clements, Peter K.L. Ng, Xi Xi Lu, Stephen Ambu, Menno Schilthuizen & Corey J.A. Bradshaw (2008). Using biogeographical patterns of endemic land snails to improve conservation planning for limestone karsts. Biological Conservation, 141: 2751-2764. See also: “Limestone karsts – islands of biodiveristy in Asia-under threat from mining.” Mongabay.com, 10 Nov 2008.
- Jaap J. Vermeulen & Reuben Clements (2008). Another twist in the tale: a new species of Opisthostoma (Gastropoda, Diplommatinidae) from Peninsular Malaysia. Basteria, 71: 263-266.
Well done and congrats all around!
