The Higher Plants of China, consisting of 14 volumes, is to meet the great needs of a broad scope of researchers worldwide to study Chinese plant conservation, biodiversity, development and sustainable use of natural botanical resource. The work is treating about 20 thousand species representing all the currently recognized plant families and genera in China. The selection of species is determined by their commonness in the wild or under cultivation and their scientific and economic values. They are often distributed in more than two provinces or autonomous regions or are sometimes found in only one province or autonomous region, but are common in neighboring countries. Representative species for each genus, including those introduced and naturalized ones, are often included.

The systematic arrangements for bryophytes, pteridophytes, and gymnosperms follow the Flora Bryophytorum Sinicorum (FBS) and FRPS (Vol.2-7), and that for angiosperms follows Croquist’s system. The contents of the volumes are as follows:

Vol.1 Bryophyta
Vol.2.Pteridophyta
Vol.3.Gymnospermae and Angiospermae (Magnoliaceae-Eucommiaceae)
Vol.4 Ulmaceae-Clusiaceae
Vol.5. Elaeocarpaceae-Diapensiaceae
Vol.6.Sapotaceae-Rosaceae
Vol.7.Mimosaceae-Dichapetalaceae
Vol.8.Buxaceae-Apiaceae
Vol.9.Loganiaceae-Lamiaceae
Vol.10.Phrymaceae-Theligonaceae
Vol.11.Caprifoliaceae-Asteraceae
Vol.12.Bytomaceae-Poaceae
Vol.13.Sparganiaceae-Orchidaceae
Vol.14.Index to Chinese and scientific names

Keys to the genera and to species are provided. For each species, its standard and sometimes other commonly used Chinese name, its scientific name with reference, and a basionym with reference when applicable are provided.
