Comparison of biodiversity between plantation and natural forests in Sabah using moths as indicators

Abstract:

Many people, particularly conservationists in the West, are very much against this sort of reforestation as they fear it would spell a permanent loss to the Bornean rain forest biodiversity. This project was carried out at the more established forest plantations of Sabah Softwoods <...>
