Wildlife Management and Ecosystem Health lab, YUFE.

June, 16 - 2017

Presentation

Created in 2012, the Wildlife Management and Ecosystem Health lab (WMEH) is a research lab of the School of Urban and Environment of the Yunnan University of Finance and Economics. It carries out research in wildlife ecology and biological conservation in Yunnan. It focuses on wildlife and humans conflicts and how they can be avoided, reduced or mitigated. Our research is grounded on field studies and mobilizes networks of forestry professionals and nature reserve managers. It integrates methods of landscape ecology and ecohealth paradigms. Our aim is to provide vulnerability and risk models and scenarios to stakeholders to help decision and environmental management in the context of global changes.

We are currently developing programmes on:

Field stations

They are all located in the Three Parallel Rivers of Yunnan Protected Areas, one of the most biodiverse and least disturbed mountain ecosystems in the world, according to UNESCO, in the uppers of the Nu Jiang - 怒江 (Salween), LanCang Jiang - 澜沧江 (upper Mekong), and JinSha Jiang - 金沙江 (upper YangTse).
