The book includes 696 wild species of 331 genera in 93 families of seed plants and more than 1900 photos, all from the karst region of Southeast Yunnan in China. Every species is described in characters, distribution and usage, attached by photos of habitant, flowers and fruits, and followed by voucher specimens and their deposited herbaria.
