The Population Ecology of White-Headed Langur offers a rare and detailed insight into 20 years of in-depth field research and conservation of the white-headed langur. It focuses on the primate's natural refuge, territory and home range, diets and foraging strategies, behaviour modes, reproductive strategies, population, possible future viabilities, and their interaction with human society.
From 1996 through 2016, a small research team led by Prof Pan Wenshi from Peking University conducted studies and conservation efforts on the white-headed langur, one of the most endangered endemic species of China, in Guangxi and saved the species from extinction. With the help of conservationists' efforts, the white-headed langur population in Nongguan Mountains, Guangxi, gradually increased from 105 to approximately 820. This book shares the success story of the unification of human development and wildlife conservation.
Pan Wenshi is an ecologist, conservation biologist, and Professor at Peking University. For the past 40 years, he has been studying 3 endangered endemic species of China, the Giant Panda, White-Headed Langur, and Chinese White Dolphin, to save them from extinction
