During September 2002, we conducted surveys focussing on the Tibetan plateau ungulate species in Yeniugou, Qinghai province, China, to compare abundance estimates with those from 1997 and the early 1990s. Wild yaks Bos grunniens, for which the area is named, evidently increased in number from about 1,200 to almost 1,700 animals. White-lipped deer Cervus albirostris, formerly quite rare in Yeniugou, also increased in number. Blue sheep Pseudois nayaur, Tibetan gazelle Procapra picticaudata and…

A globally important wild yak Bos mutus population in the Arjinshan Nature Reserve, Xinjiang, China
The steppes of north-east Arjinshan are the most important area, and there were more yaks in the north-East on similar routes driven in winter 2008 compared to winter 2005, suggesting that the wild yak population in ArJinshan is stable or increasing.

The plateau pika (Ochotona curzoniae) is a keystone species for biodiversity on the Tibetan plateau
The plateau pika should be managed in concert with other uses of the land to ensure preservation of China’s native biodiversity, as well as long-term sustainable use of the pastureland by domestic livestock.
