About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Chinese

Gesneriaceae of South China is the product of a programme of research that began in 1993. It covers more than 85% of the species of southern China and over 65% of the species known from China as a whole. 304 species (including varieties) and 32 new species temporarily unpublished in the journal covered in the book are new to science, 55 genera covered in the book, one of these, Litostigma Y.G. Wei, Fang Wen & M. Muller, is a new genus that represents an important link between basal and advanced lineages of the large subfamily Cyrtandroideae (now Didymocarpoideae). This is an indication of the botanical significance of this area of limestone karst in South China, which continues to yield important surprises, and whose limited botanical exploration to date makes it undoubted that it will continue to do so into the future.
