About this book

Lumpkin and Seidensticker present a beautifully photographed natural history of the Giant Panda, whilst sharing their personal experiences of working with giant pandas in the United States, where they work for the Smithsonian National Zoo, and in China. Accompanying the stunning photography is informative text. The authors discuss the relationship between giant pandas and people, exploring how the animals became icons of goodwill between nations. Also covered is the evolution of the species and their diet of bamboo which has shaped their past and will continue to shape their future in the wild.
