This volume, written by an international team of scientists and conservationists including Chinese researchers whose work has not been available in English, tells the promising story of how the giant panda returned from 5/5(1).

Abstract. Studies on animal space use can reveal insights into how animals interact with one another and their environment. Research on the space use patterns of the endangered giant panda (Ailuropoda melanoleuca) in China has nevertheless lagged behind that of many other species, as a government moratorium prevented telemetry data collection on pandas from to Cited by: Bamboo forests are the natural habitat of the giant panda, a black and white bear that lives in China.

In bamboo forests, pandas have the water they need, food to eat, a place to sleep, and shelter. Large quantities of bamboo can be found in the habitat, which is well shaded and near water.

The giant panda habitat that remains in the wild lies in the Chinese provinces of Shaanxi, Gansu, and Sichuan. These habitats are scattered and isolated, usually on the slopes of the surrounding mountain chains, such as Qinling, Minshan, and Xiaoxiangling.

The book starts out with a profile of the panda bear. This encompasses ancestry, classification, diet, socialization, mating and how they care for their young. Next, a history of how pandas were discovered is covered.

The rest of the book is dedicated to the plight of the vanishing pandas including poaching & their threatened habitat/5(2).

More specifically, their habitat is the bamboo forests of the Tibetan plateau and southwest China 4, to 12, ft above sea habitat, suitable for the bamboo on which they survive, is a cold, damp coniferous forest.

tainous habitat is enhanced by the superb insulation provided by short, thick fur. It has no tolerance for heat, in part because of its lack of capacity for passive heat loss or evaporative cooling (Lumpkin & Seidensticker, ). Unlike its bear counterparts, the giant panda does not hibernate, probably because of the need to forage throughout theCited by:   A new study looking specifically at panda habitats found the species has less habitat space now than it did roughly 30 years ago.

In the past decade, researchers have been making up for lost time, as reflected in the flurry of activity reported at the symposium Conservation Science for Giant Pandas and Their Habitat at the International Congress for Conservation Biology (ICCB) in by: We conducted an experiment to characterize the impact of panda foraging on the sustainability of its food resource, bamboo, in an enclosed area of natural habitat (approximately 19 ha).

We monitored bamboo density, age, and percent cover throughout the enclosure across a 3-year period. Diet plays a pivotal role in dictating behavioral patterns of herbivorous animals, particularly specialist species.
