- What is the role of landscape heterogeneity and biodiversity (tree patches, agroforestry, riparian areas, and frond piles) on the local ecosystem services (e.g. water flow regulation and production)?
- What kind of spatial landscape design optimizes the local ecosystem services (e.g. water flow regulation and production) in oil palm landscape?
- What is the perception of stakeholders on the proposed landscape design? – transdisciplinary research
