Abstract

This book synthesizes two decades of interdisciplinary research on complex interactions between a global conservation icon (the giant panda) and people, as well as its applications to human–nature interactions and sustainability across local to global scales. Guided by the coupled human and natural systems framework, an international team of natural and social scientists has conducted intensive and integrated studies in Wolong Nature Reserve in China since 1996. Wolong lies within a global biodiversity hotspot and is home to the world-famous endangered panda. It is also home to several thousan ... More
