South East Asia

 South East Asian birds includes coverage of China (south of the line used to define the Palearctic), Hainan (treated separately from SE China), Taiwan, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Peninsular Malaysia, Singapore and the Coco Islands. 

Tropical forests are the most biodiverse ecosystem globally. However, extensive loss of tropical forests, driven primarily by the expansion of agricultural land, threatens the survival of forest-dwelling species. Coupled with other anthropogenic disturbance such as logging, hunting and fires, the threat to biodiversity in these forests is amplified. While the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has been tracking the different forms of threats to wildlife, the assessments tend to look at each form of threat separately. Researchers led by Dr. William Symes of the National University of Singapore found that these threats are in fact interconnected, and their combined impact could be more severe than currently estimated.
