About this book

"Atlas of Woody Plants in China: Distribution and Climate” documents the spatially-explicit county-level distribution of all 11,405 woody plants in China, together with life form information for most species. It also provides climate information for each species, with the county-level average and range of 12 climatic indices and of vegetation net primary productivity. It is the first and largest comprehensive atlas in the world for the distribution of China’s plants and was compiled on the basis of almost all related literature published throughout China.

The atlas should serve as an indispensable handbook for all those who are interested in the plants, ecology, geography, environment, horticulture, and silviculture of China and East Asia.

Dr. Jingyun Fang is a Cheung Kong Professor at the Department of Ecology, Peking University, China. Dr. Zhiheng Wang and Dr. Zhiyao Tang are both ecologists working at the same institute.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Covers the distribution of 11,405 taxa of woody plants across the entire land area of the world’s third-largest country … . Families are arranged according to the Flora of China – making this an ideal companion tome – with alphabetical order within. … this work represents the best possible collation of present knowledge. … will no doubt be rewarded with data that could simply not be obtained elsewhere. … Most biogeographers would dream of access to this volume and quality of data.” (Markus Eichhorn, Frontiers of Biogeography, Vol. 3 (2), 2011)
