About this book

This book provides a guide on how and where priority for conservation actions in Malaysia can be placed, and why. Malaysian Nature Society (MNS) has identified 55 Important Bird Areas (IBA's) for Malaysia, covering an approximate area of 944km2; 18 in Peninsular Malaysia, 14 in Sabah and 22 in Sarawak. This directory builds, expands on and also supports several national policies, namely the National Physical Plan (NPP), a statutory document which is Malaysia's first national blueprint for spatial planning, and the National Policy on Biological Diversity.

The book covers:

Introduction to the Global IBA programme
Methodology and IBA criteria
Threats to IBAs and threatened birds in Malaysia
Analysis of IBAs and Malaysia protected areas system
Some issues to be addressed for habitat conservation
Detailed site accounts for all IBA sites throughout the country
Maps identifying all 55 IBA sites
