About this book

Language: Chinese with 148-page English abstract and scientific nomenclature

This volume of Fauna Sinica deals with the systematics and fauna of Geometrinae from China, which encompasses both the Palaearctic and Oriental regions. The whole work includes two parts: introductory section and systematics. In the introductory section, comments on the taxonomic history of the Geometrinae are summarized. The different classifications on tribal level on the basis of different regions are introduced and compared, and the genera distributed in China are separated into different tribes. Taxonomic characters of the subfamily are listed and their taxonomic significance is discussed. Biological information, especially host-plant relationships, is listed and analysed. Zoogeographical patterns of Geometrinae are discussed and the results show that most Geometrinae genera are distributed in tropical areas, and African and Oriental regions are the centers of distribution and diversification.

On generic level, there are mainly four distribution patterns in China, tropical and subtropical, Himalaya Southwest mountain, northern area, and endemic genera in China. In addition, the distribution patterns of species and endemic species in China are analysed, it shows that the subfamily Geometrinae is particularly diverse in southern China.
