Adaptation of migratory Tibetan antelope to infrastructure development
ABSTRACT Background: The Tibetan antelope (Pantholops hodgsonii) is a migratory ungulate species that inhabits the Qinghai–Tibet Plateau. In recent years, the population of Tibetan antelope has
Influences on mammals frequency of use of small bridges and culverts along the Qinghai–Tibet railway, China
It is suggested that road design schemes include large and open crossing structures to benefit most species with limitations on human activities near wildlife passages, particularly wild yak and woolly hare.
Designing wildlife crossing structures for ungulates in a desert landscape: A case study in China
Railway underpass location affects migration distance in Tibetan antelope (Pantholops hodgsonii)
This study suggests crossing location can affect animal migrations even if structures facilitate animal crossing, and suggests considering the location and structural characteristics in designing and improving wildlife crossings, which do not only facilitate utilization, but also optimize animal movement processes such as migration.
Railway ecology vs. road ecology: similarities and differences
Railway ecology is an emerging discipline. In this review, we focus on what is known today regarding the impacts of railways on wildlife, and on the methods to identify, monitor, and mitigate these
