English language monographs published abroad

Two monographs in English, “Landscape and ecosystem diversity, dynamics and management in the Yellow River Source Zone” and “River Morphodynamics and Stream Ecology of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau”, have been separately published by Springer in Germany and Taylor & Francis in the UK.

The monographs were edited by the University of Auckland in New Zealand and Qinghai University in China.

With the support of the Administration of Foreign Expert Affairs in Qinghai, Qinghai University invited foreign experts to conduct cooperative research in the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and Yellow River Source Zone, and edited their findings in these two English-language works.

The texts were published by two world famous presses, which means that they have won the recognition of international academia.

The findings offer authentic and substantial academic research in the ecological diversity and natural scenery of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, its climate change, hydrological conditions, stability of grasslands and slopes, alpine meadow ecosystem, sandy grasslands, wetlands ecosystem, fish evolution, land utilization, and social development.
