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.
Scientific Watch The IENE Scientific and Expert Committee aims to identify and disseminate research and other publications about infrastructure and biodiversity to IENE members. To achieve this objective IENE, is pleased to partner with www.TransportEcology.info to provide information from around the world to a wide range of actors involved in transport and ecology. The scope of TransportEcology.info is broad and includes all linear infrastructure (roads, railways, power lines, pipelines, fences, etc.) and all aspects of ecology and biodiversity. IENE will share publications on TransportEcology.info that have been written by IENE members, and encourages IENE members to share their research, case studies and best practice at TransportEcology.info
