We are currently conduct over 20 research projects from National Natural Science Foundation and Chinese Academy of Sciences, and have been cooperating with USA, England, German, Korea etc. The discovery of breeding colony of the Black-faced Spoonbill in China, breeding colony of the Relic Gull, and the wintering ground of the Siberian White Crane is considered as important ornithological discoveries of rare and endangered species during the 20’s century in China. We have discovered avian influenza viruses H5N1 infected migratory waterfowl populations in Qinghai Lake and infected the tree sparrows Henan province in 2005.
