Maryland Entomological Society Talk

Peter Houlihan will be speaking at the Maryland Entomological Society on Friday, April 20 about BRINCC's insect studies from the 2011 expedition. Peter will also talk about his current work on the Barcode of Life Database using DNA sequencing to better understand the phylogeography of Borneo’s butterfly populations. Specimens from the more than 100 butterfly species that Peter collected will be on display following the talk. In addition, results from the expedition’s other biodiversity projects on frogs, birds, small mammals, and gibbons, and the social team’s work conducted in the communities will be discussed, all of which has been recently published online in BRINCC’s Preliminary Report. BRINCC's Entomological studies were sponsored byBioQuip Products

 Specimens will be on display at the talk.  These drawers display mostly species belonging to the Zeuxidia and Amathuxidia genera.

Dear All, 

The preliminary report from our expedition last summer is now ready and available on our website! The final analysis is not yet complete, but we have data from this little studied area covering all aspects of our social and biodiversity work. Findings from our two teams report on social ecology, large and small mammals, primates, birds, amphibians, insects and plants!

BRINCC Preliminary Report Coming Soon!

The Project Leaders at BRINCC have been working non-stop since our return from the expedition in 2011.  Soon we will be publishing a report that presents preliminary results from the Biodiversity and Social Teams.

BRINCC's biodiversity studies will be reporting on amphibians, birds, insects, large mammals, primates, and small mammals.  Species lists from each of these studies conducted by the Biodiversity Team will be included in this report.  We will also be sharing results from the Social Team's resource mapping and findings concerning sustainable livelihood in several communities.

You can be expecting this report VERY soon, so stay tuned to our blog!
