Revealing of the plant diversity in China’s biodiversity hotspots
Jie Cai, Wen-Bin Yu, Ting Zhang, De-Zhu Li

China is home to four of the world’s biodiversity hotspots: Indo-Burma, Mountains of Southwest China, Eastern Himalaya and Mountains of Central Asia. The rapid economic development of China puts these areas under serious threat. Meanwhile, the infrastructure development improves the accessibility and creates great chance for botanists to discover the plant diversity in these regions. China’s biodiversity hotspots are found mainly in the mountainous areas with isolated habitats and high level of endemism. However, these valuable regions remain poorly studied, species richness of biodiversity in these regions is underestimated. In order to document, understand and conserve China’s biodiversity, Chinese government launched projects to conduct biodiversity investigation and baseline species surveys across country, especially in Southwest China and Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau, which leads to the increasing knowledge and newly discoveries for country's flora. This special issue will synthesize the latest studies to reveal the plant diversity of the four hotspots in China. It will contribute to the objectives of updated Global Strategy for Plant Conservation 2011-2020, and will be helpful to policy makers to feature conservation priorities in the future.
