About this book

Language: English

This catalogue includes 282 families, 2535 genera and 19,462 species of vascular plants in the Pan-Himalaya region. This region is renowned for and characterized by its distinct mountain flora, with plants ranging from tropical, subtropical, temperate, to Arctic on the same mountain at different altitudes. This region holds the richest temperate and alpine flora in the world, with tremendously differentiated genera, such as Pedicularis (414/600), Rhododendron (342/1000), Corydalis (301/465), Primula (285/500), Saxifraga (256/450), Carex (240/2000), Saussurea (236/460), Gentiana (218/360), Impatiens (191/900), Berberis (75/500), Dephinim (144/350). Aconiamn (127/400), Salix (118/520), Aremsia (111/380), Rabus (106/700), Renaria (99/300) Ligularia (94/140), Polystichum (94/500), Dryopteris (91/400), Athyrium (89/220), Androsace (86/100), Strobilanthes (85/400), Oxytropis (80/310), Clematis (77/300), Remanthod (74/76) Meconopsis (73/74), Anaphalis (59/110), and Rhodiola (54/90).
 
The author tries to list only accepted scientific names in this catalogue. However, some uncertainties or unresolved names are listed because they have not been revised by any expert. For those species without the type variety or subspecies within our region, one of the infraspecific taxa is regarded as representative of the species in statistics. The list of the subspecies and varieties in this catalogue is not necessarily complete, It is difficult to edit a catalogue accepted by all people, especially for pteridophytes, where things become more complicated. For example, a specific name has many synonyms from different genera, or even from different families, or an expert accepted a species that is distributed in India, but another expert treated such material as a different species. In this case, the author usually adopts the treatment of the Flora of China, or new taxonomic revisions. or the Catalogue of Life website.
