Preview

The book's theme—the intertwined strands of biological study on the one hand and conservation action on the other—derives from the latest findings from field and laboratory, and shows their complementarity. It is stated that the prospects for saving giant pandas are today unequaled. There is a flowering of collaborations that are advancing the understanding of the species and promoting strategies for its conservation. It is hoped that the findings, conclusions, and recommendations presented in this book have helped sketch out a road map along which China—with the support of the Chinese and international research and conservation communities—can plot a course to safety for one of its most prized national treasures, the giant panda.
