Zhuangfang has spent a month with the conservation science group working on her PhD. She will present some results from her time here:

“The shift in landuse from natural forest to rubber plantations in Xishuangbanna, China has been dramatic over the last thirty years and little natural forest remains. Two spatially-explicit maps of the net present value (NPV) of rubber plantations and forest ecosystem service value (ESV) were obtained using twenty years of government rubber yield records, economic modeling, remote sensing and geographical information syatem analysis. Using the maps of rubber NPV and forest ESV , I identified regions that are practical targets for forest recovery and assess the effectiveness of different eco-compensation schemes in each location to support decision makers in landuse planning.”
