China. There were more than botanists from 17 countries attending this symposium. East Asia is an area of the world with a very rich plant biodiversity. In 45 chapters, this study presents and discusses the floristic characteristics and the diversity of East Asian plant species with emphasis on the system evolution of the most important : East Asia is an area with the richest plant species in the world, and possesses quite a lot of endemic taxa, some of which are still at the primitive stage of evolution.

China. China is among the world's richest countries in terms of plant biodiversity. Besides the abundant flora, containing s vascular plants (30, angiosperms, gymnosperms, and pteridophytes), there is extraordinary ecosystem diversity, as well as a large pool of both wild and cultivated germplasms.

China is also considered one of the main centers of origin and diversification Cited by: Floristic Characteristics and Diversity of East Asian Plants: Proceedings of the First International Symposium on Floristic Characteristics and Diversity of East Asian Plants JulyKunming, Yunnan, P.R.

Malayan, Indian, Indochinese and East Asian play important roles in fern flora of Hainan Island. It may be a modern centre of differentiation for pteridophytes. It indicated that species diversity increased. Biogeographic region - Biogeographic region - Components of species diversity: species richness and relative abundance: Species diversity is determined not only by the number of species within a biological community—i.e., species richness—but also by the relative abundance of individuals in that community.

Species abundance is the number of individuals per species, and relative abundance. Plants from the BDDG often harbor moderate to high levels of within-population genetic diversity (Table 1 in Chung et al. 21), because these mountains Cited by: 3.
