About this book

This book offers a rare and detailed insight into 20 years’ of in-depth field research and conservation of the white-headed langur. It focuses on the white-headed langur’s natural refuge, territory and home range, diets and foraging strategies, behavior modes, reproductive strategies, population, possible future viabilities, and their interaction with human society.

From 1996 through 2016, a small research team led by Prof.Wenshi Pan from Peking University conducted studies and conservation efforts on the white-headed langur, one of the most endangered endemic species of China, in Guangxi and saved the species from extinction. With the help of conservationists’ efforts, the white-headed langur population in Nongguan Mountains, Guangxi, gradually increased from 105 to approximately 820.This book shares the success story of the unification of human development and wildlife conservation.

Wenshi Pan is an ecologist, conservation biologist, and Professor at Peking University. For the past 40 years, he has been studying 3 endangered endemic species of China, the Giant Panda, White-Headed Langur, and Chinese White Dolphin, to save them from extinction.

Devoted to life history and ecology, as well as its relationship to the biotic landscape and land use policy that impacts the survival of these keystone species, Prof. Pan continues to work with small, dedicated research teams to accomplish against insurmountable odds. He still gives lectures when he is 80 years old. He hopes to pass on his sense of obligation to nature and encourage the next generation to make a difference in nature conservation.

Prof. Pan authored 11 books and has 40-50 treatises published in various domestic and international journals including Nature and National Geographic. He is renowned for his academic achievements in researching the 3 near-extinct species and his Books such as “Pandas of Wolong”, “A Chance for Lasting Survival” and “Chinese White Dolphins of Qinzhou”.
