A special feature co-edited by Vanessa Hull and Jianguo Liu on telecoupling has begun for the journal Ecology and Society. This special feature explores diverse examples of socioeconomic and environmental interactions over distances. Stay tuned for more papers to be published in this special issue in a rolling fashion.

In summer 2017, I went on a two-week long field trip to Wolong Nature Reserve, Sichuan, China, networking with collaborators while paying a special attention to wildlife habitat and human activities in the area. Localities covered in this trip include Sanchagou (三岔沟), Niutoushan (牛头山), Wuyipeng-Erdaoping-Choushuigou (五一棚-二道坪-臭水沟) and Balangshan (巴朗山). Take a look at some interesting photos from this field trip!
Wuyipeng Research Station (五一棚科研基地) is a world-renowned field station for giant panda research. I stayed for two nights at the station, imagining how previous giant panda researchers used to work there.
Animal feces from various herbivorous, carnivorous and omnivorous species are found in Wolong Nature Reserve. Left: giant panda feces near Wuyipeng (relatively old). Middle: red panda feces in Sanchagou (fresh). Right: sambar feces in Choushuigou (very fresh).
