  • This dataset consists of moth and dung beetle recapture, movement, and trait data from a mark-release-recapture experiment conducted within riparian forest reserves, in an oil palm landscape in Sabah, Malaysian Borneo conducted as part of the SAFE project (Stability of Altered Forest Ecosystems). This resource includes information regarding the recapture frequency and movement behaviour of both moths and dung beetles with respect to three habitat types: riparian forest reserve, continuous forest, and oil palm plantation. These data were collected to assess the extent in which moths and dung beetles use riparian forest reserves, relative to the oil palm plantations, as movement corridors between continuous forest. Data was collected between 2016 and 2017, as part of the Land use Options of Maintaining BiOdiversity and eKosystem functions project (LOMBOK), a part of the Human Modified Tropical Forests Programme (HMTF) Full details about this dataset can be found at https://doi.org/10.5285/4ca7f1ff-7bc4-4077-bc9c-96be1be3e655

  • This dataset contains records for vegetation in 49 plots across 14 fragmented forest sites and 4 continuous forest sites in Sabah, Malaysian Borneo. Living vegetation and deadwood were surveyed in two or three 0.28-ha plots in each of the 18 sites. In addition to vegetation data, the dataset contains topsoil parameters, measurements of forest structure, and metrics of the degree of forest fragmentation in the landscape surrounding the plots. These data were collected in order to conduct studies examining (1) the factors supporting invasion of exotic plant species into fragmented forest areas; and (2) the value of conservation set-asides for carbon storage and associated plant diversity in oil palm plantations.
