This book is a synthesis of five most exciting and dominant themes in contemporary ecological research in China: biodiversity, ecosystem management, degraded ecosystem restoration, global change and sustainable development. It spans all the Earth&8217;s major ecosystems, such as forests, oceans, grasslands, wetlands, lakes, rivers, farmland and cities. Ecological research and protection practice develop so fast and achieve a lot at the national agenda. Rapid economic development has significantly influenced ecosystems and environments in China, and the impacts of growth have placed considerable demands on the field of ecology. The Chinese government is increasingly focusing on ecological construction and has subscribed to a national &8216;Scientific Development Concept&8217;. This concept underpins future economic development in China and establishes drivers of ecological research to meet emerging national needs. Given the pace of change and national prominence of ecological thinking and research, a summary of the principles and applications of ecological research in China is urgently required and will be of great value. This monograph presents research and contributions from leading scientists across China. Taking five main themes, it reviews the main principles and applications of modern ecology over the past two decades in China. It provides fundamental information that will help shape future ecological research and conservation. And given China&8217;s increasingly high-profile role in global issues, this book will allow researchers, students and policymakers outside China to learn about the significant achievements and applications of ecological research within China. This work provides a platform for scientific research across a variety of disciplines. It will be invaluable to experts, policymakers and local officers and will also be a highly useful resource for undergraduate and postgraduate students.
