new publication: Conservation status of Asian elephants

April 27, 2017

Our new publication about the drivers of Asian elephant (Elephas maximus) abundance and distribution has been published in Biodiversity and Conservation. The influence of habitat- and governance-related drivers on elephant abundance across the 13 Asian elephant range countries has been analysed. Competing statistical models by integrating a binary index of elephant abundance (IEA) derived from expert knowledge with different predictor variables including habitat, human population, socioeconomics, and governance data were tested.
