Second International Birding Race in Longzhou

March, 2018. Our three PhD students, Jiang Demeng, Salindra Dayananda and Estelle Meaux, participated to the Second International Birding Race in Longzhou, Guangxi Province, China. The competition took place in one of our main field sites for avian studies: the karst habitat of Nonggang National Nature Reserve. This national reserve is famous for the Nonggang Babbler, a species recently described by Zhou Fang and one of our associate professors, Jiang Aiwu, in 2008. As for the previous race, Jiang Aiwu actively participated this year in organizing and managing this 3-days competition
