Andreas Wilting

Andreas Wilting, a PhD student with the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research in Berlin, Germany, visited the Raffles Museum from 16 to 18 Dec 2009 to examine specimens for his study on the phylogeography of cats and civets in Southeast Asia, in particular their evolution in the Sunda region. Andi is working on a research and conservation project called ConCaSa (Conservation of Carnivores in Sabah) in the Deramakot Forest Reserve (DFR), Sabah, which is home to some endangered mammal species.
