Abstract & Keywords
Abstract: The wildlife trade is one of the major threats to biodiversity. Understanding its spatial patterns and driving factors is crucial to effectively invest in protected resources and formulate conservation strategies. Although e-commerce platforms can provide convenience for the wildlife trade, it also could be an important means for spatial investigations. We have chosen Taobao as the platform for the survey, and collected the sales information of protected parrots (120 days) and turtles (150 days) during 2016–2017. The transaction information contained in this dataset include 5,862 parrots (46 species) sold from 100 cities and 66,926 turtles (49 species) from 109 cities. The dataset not only provides an ideal data source for exploring the driving factors of the wildlife trade and consumer preferences for biological characteristics of wildlife, but also provides a reference for the ongoing improvement of the wildlife management policy and the future assessment on the policy effect.
