Livestock production is one of the greatest threats to biodiversity worldwide.

We investigated the impact of an emerging livestock sector in China's renowned Wolong Nature Reserve for giant pandas. We(More)
Animals make choices about where to spend their time in complex and dynamic landscapes, choices that reveal information about their biology that in turn can be used to guide their conservation. Using GPS collars, we conducted a novel individual-based analysis of habitat use and selection by the elusive and endangered giant pandas (Ailuropoda melanoleuca).(More)
