Abstract:
Habitat corridor is an effective way to enhance gene communication, and avoid extinction of small populations. The Niba Mountain, as a part of the Daxiangling Mountains, is the key area to connect the central populations of the giant panda in the Daxiangling Mountains with the populations in the Qionglai Mountains. In order to research the design method of the corridor for the giant panda and promote the construction of the Niba Mountain corridor, we designed a giant panda habitat corridor in the Niba Mountain based on the third national survey on the giant panda (2000-2001) and field survey data from 2011 to 2012. Maxent model, Linkage mapper corridor design software, and a least-cost path model (LCP) were used to design the corridor. The habitat corridor to build is 2 250 m in width and 15.76 km in length, covering an area of 38.5 km2 and distributing between the altitudes of 1 400 m and 3 000 m. Vegetation types of the corridor are mainly broad-leaved forests, shrubs, and coniferous forests. Most of the areas are moderately suitable and unsuitable habitat, accounting for 74.19% and 25.29%, respectively, of the total area. Only 0.52% is suitable habitat. Therefore, to ensure smooth passing-through of the giant panda, the designed corridor needs further transformation and protection to increase the area of suitable habitat.
