Written By Yun Wang, IENE Scientific and expert comittee members Research Centre for Environment Protection and Water and Soil Conservation, China Academy of Transportation Sciences

We searched Chinese and international databases for peer-reviewed papers on road ecology in China and found 170 papers. Our review of those focussed on identifying ecological impacts, research themes, knowledge gaps, and future research directions. The transport network in China is one of the largest in the world, and our review will guide our work in China and abroad.
