How does your garden grow? Traditional planting of fruit trees promotes animal diversity in the Malaysian rainforest


Traditional fruit gardens planted by indigenous communities in the Malaysian rainforest increase the diversity of the animals who make it their home, research has found.

The study, led by researchers at The University of Nottingham's campuses in the UK and Malaysia, has shown that the impact of humans can have positive outcomes for the conservation of this precious ecosystem when managed effectively.

The research, published this month (February) in the journal Biological Conservation, suggests that traditional agroforestry systems introduced by the indigenous human population could be useful in supporting endangered and vulnerable species of animals.
