Develop Galliformes monitoring ability in Southwest China. In doing so, develop a methodology for a Galliformes-based system for monitoring biodiversity in forested habitats. Galliformes lend themselves to this because they are relatively well known in this hotspot and are found in a wide range of forested conditions. The main aims are to develop a system for monitoring Galliformes and to assess how informative this is for other groups of organisms.
Strategic Direction:1 Develop and operationalize hotspot-wide monitoring and evaluation projects
