Results of the field work in recent years reveal that the Taolimiao-Alashan Nur is of specific significance to the survival of the Relict Gull Ordos subpopulation while the wetland birds occurring there represent concentratedly and indicatively the characteristics of the wetland bird community in desert of Ordos; as in July of 1992 China became the contract nation of the Convention on Wetlands of International Importance especially as Waterfowl Habit at (The Ramsar Convention), the study also presents an as- sessment on the wetland habitat of the T-A Nur following the Criteria recommended by the Coonvention and suggests that the T-A Nur following the relevant articles/items of the Criteria might be considered as an important wetland locality in China and hence to be listed on List of Wetlands of International Importance.
