Wanting Peng currently works at the Department of Landscape Architecture and Urban Planning, College of Architecture and Urban Planning, Tongji University. Now Wanting is a visiting scholar in Landscape Architecture and Spatial Sciences at the Spatial Sciences Institute at the University of Southern California. Her current research interests are in national park conservation planning and ecosystem stewardship to balance conflicts between biodiversity conservation and communities’ socioeconomic development. Her work involves the species distribution, environmental modeling, ecotourism, carrying capacity, social-ecosystem services and sustainable livelihood.
Accurate prediction of forest carbon sequestration potential requires a comprehensive understanding of tree growth relationships. However, the studies for estimating carbon sequestration potential concerning tree growth relationships at fine spatial-scales have been limited. In this paper, we assessed the current carbon stock and predicted sequestr...
Many forests have suffered serious economic losses and ecological consequences of pine wilt disease (PWD) outbreaks. Climate change and human activities could accelerate the distribution of PWD, causing the exponential expansion of damaged forest areas in China. However, few studies have analyzed the spatiotemporal dynamics and the factors driving...
Understanding and assessing ecological vulnerability for estuarine islands are important for maintaining estuarine island ecosystem services and its sustainable development. However, due to its complex fresh water–sea–land interaction mechanism and multiple stressors from both climate change and anthropogenic influence, a comprehensive evaluation o...
Land use/land cover (LULC) change driven by land use policy always leads to dramatic change in carbon storage and sequestration, especially in a rapidly urbanizing region. However, few studies explored the influences of land use polices on carbon storage and sequestration in a rapidly urbanizing region. Through Integrated Valuation of Ecosystem Ser...
Transboundary environmental problems caused by urban expansion and economic growth cannot be solved by individual cities. Successful intercity environmental cooperation relies on the clear identification and definition of the rights and obligations of each city. An Ecosystem services (ES) approach not only budgets the ES supply and demand of a city...
Resettlement of local people from protected areas (PAs) has been regarded as a preferred method to alleviate human disturbance and environmental pressure. Lack of knowledge about local communities' perceptions of resettlement, however, can lead to failed relocation projects and negative impacts on environmental sustainability and livelihoods. To be...
1)To reveal the different perspectives of local and surrounding communities dependant on the ecosystem; and to investigate their benefits, costs, and the people’s livelihoods that rely on the ecosystem services in protected areas. 2)1) To develop a habitat suitability model for the Black-Necked Crane that would allow for an examination of the species’ current and potential distribution given appropriate management actions. 3)To promote ecosystem services (ES) approach to solve ecological and economic problems of national parks in China and contribute to sustainable human welfare.
