Lab Seminar - Modeling ecosystem service conflicts in China's Lake Poyang

Xiurou Wu updated her research on addressing ecosystem service trade-offs in China's Lake Poyang. This research proposes a model of ecosystem service management that takes into account the conflict between fisheries operations and conservation of endangered and threatened waterfowl, specifically Siberian Cranes. The model is calibrated to fit the example of China’s largest freshwater lake, Lake Poyang, the wintering ground for the last surviving population of Siberian Cranes.
