Bamboo dieback: an opportunity to restore panda habitat

Bamboo dieback: an opportunity to restore panda habitat

Environmental Conservation 18(2): 166-168

About 50% of the remaining giant pandas (Ailuropoda melanoleuca) live within the 12 Natural Reserves established in W. China in 1963-79. Logging, selective cutting and clear-cutting have extensively altered forest habitats with bamboo, both within and outside the reserves. The recent large-scale (2000 kmsuperscript 2) flowering and dieback of one bamboo species, Bashania fangiana, led to localized panda mortality.
