This project seeks to explore the diversity of forest organisms and functions across latitude and elevation in South-East Asia by collecting and recording insect specimens to explain whether community assembly is spatially and temporally stratified at various spatial scales.

Initially, identification would be restricted to taxonomic orders and families, but funding from BIFA will allow extra resources to identify specimens to genus and species level and properly digitize the biodiversity data.

Based on a solid collaboration between Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden, China and Mahidol University, Thailand, this project will include sampling at Mo Singto, Khao Yai National Park and Klong Naka Wildlife Sanctuary—both in Thailand.
