From the reviews: "The book gives access to interesting information which is hardly available from other sources such as medical use or a list of botanic gardens in China ! . For students in China or foreign botanists intending a travel in China or seeking cooperation with China scientists, the book is ! a helpful source of information." (Th. Stutzel, Feddes Repertorium, Vol. 114 (3-4), 2003) "This book is ! a labour of love that distils the knowledge of plants in China of two scholars who have plenty of experience on the subject matter. ! It covers a specialized niche and hence it mainly caters to readers with botanical training with a taxonomic bent, and with an interest in the highly divergent flora of a country with a long history of plant study and usage." (C. Y. Jim, China Quarterly, 2003)
