It is hypothesized that suboptimal habitat quality and limited forest area may contribute to the current mating structure of the Hainan gibbons, but more work needs to be done over a longer period to understand better the sociosexual behaviors of this critically endangered species.

Although Hainan black-crested gibbons have been on the list of the most endangered primate species in the world for many years, their environment is still deteriorating, especially on Hainan Island.…
Relatively Recent Evolution of Pelage Coloration in Colobinae: Phylogeny and Phylogeography of Three Closely Related Langur Species
It is highlighted that morphological changes for example in pelage coloration can occur in isolated populations in relatively short time periods and it provides a solid basis for studies in related species.
Responses to Inter-group Encounters of the Hainan Gibbon Nomascus hainanus
The Hainan gibbon ( Nomascus hainanus ) is one of the most endangered primates and the least studied gibbon species in the fieldwork. In the past decades only a little information was known about its…
Wildlife conservation and management in China: achievements, challenges and perspectives
The upcoming 15th Conference of Parties (COP15) for Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) serves as an opportunity for China to make ambitious but pragmatic commitments to elevate its wildlife conservation and management activities.
Recovery of the Critically Endangered Hainan gibbon Nomascus hainanus
Changes in population dynamics, and the current number of individuals, based on historical sources and fieldwork during 2002–2013 indicate that the Hainan gibbon is likely to remain Critically Endangered in the coming decades.
A new blind species of the cave genus Oreonectes from Guizhou, China (Nemacheilinae)
A genetic analysis was performed and showed that a new specimen of cavefish collected from a karst cave in the Daqikong area of Libo County, Guizhou is a new species of Balitoridae: Nemacheilinae, and its genetic distances are higher than intraspecific distances.
Identification and characterization of novel bi-functional cathelicidins from the black-spotted frog (Pelophylax nigromaculata) with both anti-infective and antioxidant activities.
A New Species of Murina from China (Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae)
This species has a higher similarity with Murina cyclotis and Murina peninsularis in morphology, however, there is obvious difference in skull morphlogy and phylogenetic relationship among these three species.
Sound Spectrum Characteristics of Songs of Hainan Gibbon (Nomascus hainanus)
Hainan gibbon sound structure is simple, although females participate in the chorus, reflecting their primitive status among gibbon species, and the sonic frequencies of male and female songs are lower than those of other gibbons: no more than 2 kHz.
