In Praise of Pandas and People

"In this wonderful book, Jianguo Liu and his colleagues synthesize their long-term research on pandas-people interactions, their significance for the world, and our reasons for hope."

--Jared Diamond, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Guns, Germs and Steel


“This is an excellent book; a key volume in conservation biology. The coupled human and natural systems approach provides useful insights from local studies for global sustainability.”

--Paul R. Ehrlich, President, Center for Conservation Biology, Stanford University


“In the first volume of its kind the authors beautifully investigate the telecoupled word of a globalized society where humans and nature truly intertwine, with major implications for stewardship of our life-supporting ecosystems and sustainability. Exciting reading!"

--Carl Folke, Director, Beijer Institute, Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences
