Spatially explicit threat vulnerability and conservation priorities for Asian Rosewoods

Rosewoods (Dalbergia spp.) are extremely valuable timber species. Over-exploitation through illegal harvesting has significantly reduced most of the species in their natural range. Here we propose in situ and ex situ conservation priorities for three endangered Rosewood species based on species distribution modelling and multi-threat assessment.
