About this book

Language: Chinese with English summaries

The literature collected should completely and systematically reflect the research results in the giant panda ex-situ conservation. Meanwhile, we have consulted the most current theories and results in the conservation for endangered animals and introduced new theories and practical technologies in the fields of animal behavior, conservation genetics, reproductive biology, veterinary science and nutrition, all in an effort to go in innovative directions and develop new trends for giant panda ex-situ conservation in the future.
