At a time when China is forging ahead as one of the world's fastest developing economic powers, this book celebrates the fact that it is also a country of spectacular landscapes and fascinating wildlife. China is one of the world's most diverse countries, and from the high peaks and stony plateaux of the Himalaya to the scorching deserts of the country's north-west and the sub-tropical forests of the far south, it is home to an extraordinary range of wildlife. As well as the iconic Giant Pandas, one of the world's great conservation symbols, there are some surprises here too - tigers, elephants, snow leopards and Bactrian camels are all found in China.In this revised and updated new edition, author John Mackinnon looks at the many landscapes and ecosystems found across this huge country, and examines the vast range of wildlife species each habitat supports. Sections on current threats to biodiversity and on wildlife conservation look at the challenges that lay ahead if the landscapes and wildlife wealth of China are to be secured for future generations. With over 200 spectacular colour photographs, this book is a celebration of China's natural heritage.
