About this book

There is an accompanying volume with illustrations.

This is the largest single volume of the Flora of China, entirely devoted to the daisy family (Asteraceae, or Compositae), with 2325 species described in 248 genera and 15 tribes. Among these, the largest genera are the dandelions (Taraxacum, 116 species), the asters (Aster, 123 species), Ligularia (123 species), the wormwoods (Artemisia, 186 species), and the saw-worts and snow lotuses (Saussurea, 289 species). Eighteen genera and 1131 species of Asteraceae are endemic to China, i.e., 48.6% of the total. This corresponds closely with the overall percentage – 50.5% – of endemic seed plants in China.
