Habitat and Ecology

Habitat and Ecology
This species is thought to be a forest species that requires canopy cover. However, it has been collected from patches of disturbed forest and in coconut palms and fruit trees near the forest edge, though it is not found in open stands of coconut palms (McGuire 2007).

Justification
Draco lineatus inhabits natural and disturbed areas throughout its moderately wide range. Therefore an assessment of Least Concern has been made. However, land degradation and destruction is a threat to this species, but not likely to be causing significant declines high enough to warrant the assignment of a threat category at this time. Research and monitoring is needed for this species as population declines may increase if measures are not taken to protect the natural environment on the islands this species inhabits.

Threats

Major Threats
This species has likely experienced habitat loss and degradation due to logging, expansion of agriculture, and conversion of forest to plantation. Forests in the Maluku island groups saw up to 13% decline in forest cover between 1985 and 1997 and continued deforestation is expected due to the the ongoing expansion of timber and palm oil plantations (FWI and GFW 2002).

Management

Conservation Actions

Conservation Actions
There are no species-specific conservation measures in place for this species. Further research into the threats, abundance and habitat status of this species is suggested, and population monitoring is recommended. New protected areas are required in order to reduce the rate of habitat loss in the area.
