Abstract

[Extract] Aim: The Hindenburg Wall, along with the Muller Range and Nakanai Mountains, is a part of a proposed UNESCO World Heritage Site called The Sublime Karst of Papua New Guinea (Hamilton-Smith 2006). This survey document reports on a biodiversity assessment undertaken by the Wildlife Conservation Society Papua New Guinea (WCS), financed by the Papua New Guinea Sustainable Development Program Ltd (PNGSDP), and undertaken in partnership with the Papua New Guinea Department of Environment and Conservation (DEC). The aim of this project was to conduct a series of biological surveys in the region by a WCS-led team of international and nationaltaxonomic experts in order to investigate the biodiversity values in light of the area being a proposed UNESCO World Heritage Area.
