The Loess Plateau of Central China is a breathtaking landscape with a long cultural history, and with a very rich and spectacular flora. The Flora Loessplateau Sinicae already exists for species determination. This series of six volumes, however, is written in Chinese, and only three of the six volumes have been published.
This field guide in English is published to give botanists, both professional and amateur, from all over the world access to the plant life of the Loess Plateau. It is based on the existing complete Flora, but the determination keys are intensively revised.
