About this book

Red Panda: Biology and Conservation of the First Panda, second edition provides the most up-to-date research, data and conservation solutions for the red panda, Ailurus fulgens, including information on biology, pathology, husbandry and captive management. Since the publication of the previous edition in 2010, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has updated the threat level of red pandas as an endangered species. This edition provides an in-depth look at the scientific and conservation-based issues urgently facing today's red panda. This is a vital resource for conservationists, zoologists, and biologists, whether focused specifically on red panda research or general species conservation.

Led by the world's leading researcher and advocate for red panda conservation, this new edition includes work from the Population and Habitat Viability (PHVA) Workshops conducted in the species' geographic location of Nepal, China and India. These workshops provide firsthand research on the dwindling red panda population due to factors including deforestation, illegal pet trade, human population growth and climate change.

Biography

Angela Glatston was the Conservation Coordinator for Rotterdam Zoo, as well as the Chair of the Board of the Red Panda Network. Dr Glatston was the creator of the Red Panda EEP and more recently the Red Panda Global Species Management Plan. Dr Glatston is also the former chair of the IUCN SSC Specialist Group Chair for Mustelids, Viverrids, and Procyonids (now the Small Carnivore Specialist Group), having compiled the first Status Survey and Conservation Action Plan for Procyonids and Ailurids. Recently, she drafted the Red Data List Assessment for the red panda that resulted in its being reclassified as endangered rather than vulnerable.

Media reviews

This really useful book consists of 26 chapters written by experts in all areas of the biology of the red panda. It therefore makes both an enjoyable and informative read; a book to keep and refer to frequently. - Dr Miranda F. Stevenson, BIAZA - British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums, Zooquaria (73rd issue) "This book enables us to understand so much about the little red enigma and, as Simon Stuart says in the Foreword, the book reminds us of the problems confronting the red panda in the wild and of what we will lose should it die out. We must not allow this to happen."--Zooquaria
