Abstract:From July 2012 to December 2013, fixed monitoring transect lines were set in Wuyipeng, Wolong National Nature Reserve. Giant panda activity traces and habitat data were regularly collected in regenerative and remnant arrow bamboo (Bashania faberi) forests. According to the transect monitors and plot investigations, the distribution changes of Fargesia robusta and Bashania faberi forests were altitudinal gradient. Fargesia robusta growed well below 2700 m, while B. faberi was the dominant bamboo between 2300 m and 3600 m in Wuyipeng. The pattern of the regenerative and remnant bamboo forests of B. faberi was mosaic and coupling distribution, therefore, it was beneficial for the giant pandas against seasonal migration, food transform and responding to flowered and died of bamboo species. By analyzing the monitor data of wild pandas' traces from September 2012 to November 2013 in Wuyipeng, we found that giant pandas lived mainly in the regenerative bamboo forest, and the average using ratio was 91.94%, although there was fluctuation in different months (P<0.05). Comparing microhabitat structure between regenerative and remnant arrow bamboo forest, there were no significant differences (P>0.05) in all the variables except slope, shrub cover, herb cover, shoot density, mature bamboo density, population density and density of dead bamboo. Bamboo quality (stem diameter, stem length and biomass) was enough for the giant pandas' using standards.
