Indonesia's 'Lost World' Reveals More Surprises

adamBiodiversity, Ecosystems

A scientific expedition into the pristine “Lost World” of western New Guinea’s Foja Mountains – Asia Pacific’s largest un-roaded tropical forest – has yielded numerous treasures including documentation of rare and little known birds and the discovery of two mammals new to science. Return expeditions in 2008 and 2009 hope to find new species of frogs, mammals, butterflies and plants in the area.
