About this book

Language: Chinese with scientific nomenclature

Fujian province is located on China's southeast coast, and has a land area of 124 000 square kilometers. There are large regional differences in climate, and vertical zonation is pronounced, making for a complex and diverse climate conducive to the growth of various plants. It is rich in native, introduced and cultivated trees. Especially since the 1990s, to meet the needs of forestry production, landscaping and other industries, a large number of foreign species have been introduced from outside the province. Due to the large number of species, naming and identifying trees poses certain difficulties. To meet the teaching needs of universities and research institutions, and to facilitate the work of grass-roots organizations and field investigations, the editor has organized, revised, supplemented, and compiled this book. In the process of preparing it, herbarium collections of specimen trees were examined, important plant taxonomic literature and books were reviewed, and based on many years of research at the College of Forestry, Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University, nomenclature has been completely revised. The book covers 155 families and 795 genera of woody plants in Fujian, totalling 2 697 kinds, subspecies, varieties, forms and cultivars. This book focuses on the eastern and southern regions, and, in addition to a large number of wild plants collected outside of major urban areas, includes ornamental plants and medicinal plants. It describes the morphological characteristics and geographic distribution of each group. This book is not only suitable for teaching at higher education institutions, and those engaged in biology, agriculture, forestry, horticulture, medicine, environmental protection, secondary education and other, but it also has high practical value as a reference manual, and provides a scientific basis for preserving Fujian's natural heritage.

Summary in Chinese:
福建位于中国东南沿海,陆地面积12.4万平方千米,平面形状斜长方形,东西最大间距约480千米,南北最大间距约530千米;地跨中、南亚热带,处于泛北极植物区和古热带植物区的交汇处。福建气候区域差异较大,属亚热带湿润季风气候,区内水热条件优越、垂直分带较明显,气候复杂多样利于各种植物生长,原生树木丰富,引种栽培的树木也易于驯化利用。尤其20世纪90年代以来,为满足林业生产、园林绿化等方面的需要,从省外、国外引进了大量的树种资源。由于数量较大,树种的定名、识别有一定的困难。为此,编者为满足院校教学需求、为方便科研机构和基层组织野外调查方面的工作,将福建木本植物进行整理、修订、补充、编成《福建木本植物检索表》。在编写过程中,核对了福建各植物标本室所藏的树木标本;查阅了历年来重要的植物分类学文献、著作,尽可能做到检索可靠、定名正确;并在福建农林大学林学院多年科研和教学实践基础上,广泛吸收了各方面的意见,进行了全面修订。本书共记载福建木本植物155科795属2697种、亚种、变种、变型及栽培变种,其中蕨类木本植物2科3属6种,裸子植物10科38属137种及种下类群,被子植物143科’754.属 2554.种及种下类群。   本书着眼于华东和华南地区,重点在福建,除收录大量野生植物外,对重要的城市绿化、观赏植物、药用植物等也大量收集,较详细而系统地反映了福建木本植物资源概况及各树种、各类群的形态特征和地理分布。本书不仅适于高等院校的教学,对于从事生物、农、林、园艺、医药、环保、中学教育等行业的工作者也有较高的实用价值,是广大植物爱好者了解福建木本植物的一本重要参考手册,也为福建生态省建设提供科学依据和基本资料
