A New Dawning for Giant Pandas?
This book is the proceedings of the Panda 2000 conference, an event that brought together scientists and conservationists selected as participants on the basis of the skill and cogency of their efforts. Although the panda's future is still far from certain, sweeping changes in China's environmental policies allows us to hope that we may be witnessing a sea change in the way panda conservation is accomplished. There are three intertwined strands emerging in the renewed interest in giant pandas: (1) the surmounting of cultural and language differences in communication about the species, (2) the wedding of governmental authority and resources to programmatic proposals for setting goals, and (3) the significance of organismic biology in shaping those proposals. The work presented in this book derives from scientists with a strong conservation ethic and conservationists with a keen appreciation of the importance of science to their work.
