The 2nd Eastern-Himalaya Forum

6th Asian Primates Symposium &

5th Asian (Indochinese) Primates Conservation Symposium

Theme: Diversification and conservation of Primates at the relaying point between East and South Asia

19-23,October 2018, Dali University and Yunlong National Parks

Yunnan is well known for its rich and unique natural environment. Despite most of its area is located north of the Tropic of Cancer, the ‘everlasting spring’ climate and the influence of the southwest monsoon abet ideal conditions for the survival of primates. Among all the regions in Asia characterized by a similar latitudinal range, Northwest Yunnan hosts the highest diversity of primates, including several rare and endemic species. The recently described Rhinopithecus strykeri and Hoolock tianxing were discovered in the Three Parallel Rivers region of northwest Yunnan, a UNESCO World Heritage site and outstanding biodiversity hotspot lying within the Hengduan mountains complex. It is generally believed that this region is the historical birthplace of Ericaceae, Phasianidae, Asian colobines primates. In addition to currently living primates, the natural habitats of Yunnan were home to several ancient primates, as testified by the fossil evidence of Lufengpithecus and Yuanmou man. Thanks to its geographical location, Yunnan forms a migration corridor (dispersed route) between the Indochinese peninsula and South Asia. Unfortunately, cross-border wildlife trade is also using this route, from Southeast Asia passing through Guangxi, Yunnan and northeast India. These pressing and delicate issues are seizing an increasing attention from researchers and conservationists from all over the world. There is great hope that the scientific community, together with policy makers and involved stakeholders, consistently acknowledge the importance of this region and its biodiversity. By sharing efforts and building a solid and favorable communication environment, we can find efficient solutions to the problems that primates are facing and could be confronted in the future.

  众所周知,云南拥有着得天独厚的自然环境。尽管云南位于北回归线以北的纬度地区,但多样的气候类型和受西南季风的影响使其非常适宜灵长类的生存。滇西北地区是亚洲北回归线以北灵长类多样性最高的区域,包括了很多的特有物种和稀有物种。最近,新描述的灵长类物种怒江金丝猴 (Rhinopithecus strykeri) 和天行长臂猿 (Hoolock tianxing) 就是在亚洲横断山脉的三江并流地区复杂多变的栖息地条件下被发现的。该地区是杜鹃花科 (Ericaceae)、雉科 (Phasianidae) 和亚洲疣猴类 (Asian colobines primates) 的分化中心。另外,与现存的灵长类相比,云南同时是远古时期灵长类的适宜生境,如禄丰古猿 (Lufengpithecus) 和元谋人 (Yuanmou)。云南与中印半岛毗邻,为灵长类在东亚与南亚间迁移的生境廊道 (扩散路径)。不幸的是,这条通道也是野生动物跨境交易 (从广西、中印半岛到印度东北) 的路径。亚洲灵长类的保护聚焦于此区域,希望灵长类研究人员和保护工作者能够互通有无,意识到本地区的重要性并积极思考所面临的问题。
