Abstract

Since it’s establishment in 1995, Shell Research Chair has supported research activities from various perspective related to biodiversity and environmental sciences. This book presents ten research activities that had completed under the Chair between 2007 and 2018. The research activities encompasses a wide range of topics include fundamental studies on biodiversity (marine harmful algae, macroinvertebrates, fishes, amphibians, reptiles, birds and small mammals), ecological study of rivers and lakes, and its biodiversity, and assessment of tarballs characteristics associated with oil industry. The Chair has also supported conservation awareness programmes such as International Frog Race, Dolphins Conservation in Sarawak and Hornbills Monitoring in Piasau Nature Reserve. Outcomes of these activities have been published in various forms including paper in journals, conference proceedings, and books. As those materials are scattered and scientific publications suit more the requirement of academic communities, this coffee table book was produced to gather outcomes and information of all activities into a brief and colourful book using as many layman terminologies as possible. We would like to thank Shell for continuously supporting UNIMAS research activities, in particular by IBEC. We acknowledged as the commitments of grant recipients and supports from staff of IBEC, in making Shell Research Chair an active and successful fund provider in the university. This coffee table book is timely in commemorating UNIMAS 25 years of commitment towards academic excellence. As such, we would like to congratulate everyone who participated directly or indirectly in producing this book.
