Oil palm expansion is a major driver of habitat loss in the tropics. Although a
number of studies have evaluated the consequences for terrestrial biodiversity,
the effects on wetland habitats and fauna are less well described. This study
aims to determine the conservation value of flood-control drainage channels in
oil palm smallholdings for waterbirds. We also measured the water quality
(water temperature; pH; dissolved oxygen, DO; total dissolved solids, TDS;
salinity; water depth; conductivity; and turbidity) and habitat characteristics
(vegetation cover and channel width) to determine the relationship between
waterbird species richness, water quality, and habitat characteristics
