(p.24) Chapter 3 The Milieu: Field Study Sites and Habitats

This chapter describes field-study research on the habitats of treeshrews in Malaysia. About 20 percent of the mammal species of Borneo are endemic to it, including seven of its ten species of treeshrews. All of these treeshrews dwell in the tropical rainforests, and the large geographic extent and elevational variation of Borneo may have provided a field for speciation and persistence for this family poorly represented elsewhere. The chapter describes the fruiting phenology, the history of disturbance, and the biogeographic history of treeshrew habitats in Malaysia.

Keywords:   treeshrews, habitat, Malaysia, Borneo, tropical rainforests, elevational variation, speciation, fruiting phenology, biogeographic history
