About this book

Language: Chapters in either English or French (see table of contents) with bilingual summaries, bilingual front matter in English and French

A Rapid Biological Assessment of the Mt. Panié and Roches De La Ouaième Region, Province Nord, New Caledonia contains the findings from rapid biological assessments around Mont Panie, the tallest mountain in New Caledonia, southwest Pacific. The purpose of the survey was to gather data on biodiversity, analyze local climate trends, assess threats, and identify conservation priorities. The research team surveyed mammals, birds, plants, freshwater fishes and crustaceans, reptiles and amphibians, and dragonflies and damselflies. They also discovered fifteen new species of plants and lizards, as well as several other rare species, including the endangered crow honeyeater. Detailed conservation recommendations are provided.
