From the Publisher"This book is a necessary addition to the conservation biology library to round out the story of efforts and problems involved in saving the giant panda."
"This is an exceptional publication presenting a wealth of current knowledge on giant panda biology, including health, behavior, reproductive physiology, genetics and species management....
The book, which is written and edited very well, includes the results of the [IUCN-World Conservation Union] survey in detail, along with data tables, photographs and up-to-date reference lists.... It also demonstrates the tremendous rewards to be gained from multidisciplinary and multinational projects despite considerable political, logistical, and linguistic challenges, as well as the importance of documenting procedures in new species."
