About this book

Provides an overview of the subject fully referenced and indexed and will be of interest to those working in agriculture, alternative medicine, botany, conservation, ecology, genetics, horticulture, molecular biology and taxonomy.

From the reviews: "The book gives access to interesting information which is hardly available from other sources such as medical use or a list of botanic gardens in China ! . For students in China or foreign botanists intending a travel in China or seeking cooperation with China scientists, the book is ! a helpful source of information." (Th. Stutzel, Feddes Repertorium, Vol. 114 (3-4), 2003) "This book is ! a labour of love that distils the knowledge of plants in China of two scholars who have plenty of experience on the subject matter. ! It covers a specialized niche and hence it mainly caters to readers with botanical training with a taxonomic bent, and with an interest in the highly divergent flora of a country with a long history of plant study and usage." (C. Y. Jim, China Quarterly, 2003)
