About this book

Plant Ecology in China presents a compilation of 16 new articles on plant ecological research in China concurrently published in 2010 in a special issue of the journal, Plant Ecology. It provides an introduction to plant ecology in China, identifying recent trends in research and numbers of publications in English language outlets, and a bibliography of articles published in Plant Ecology since 1997.

Plant Ecology in China highlights how the internationalization of science is now providing the non-Chinese research community with detailed information on pure and applied research in China spanning all areas of plant ecology.
