Summary

his atlas is another summary result of the publication of "Chinese Vegetation" and other monographs by the vegetation ecology workers in China for more than 40 years. It is a basic map of the country's natural resources and natural conditions. It reflects in detail the distribution, horizontal zonality, and vertical zonal distribution patterns of 11 vegetation types, 54 vegetation types of 796 and subgroups, and reflects more than 2,000 plant dominant species in China.

This Atlas consists of four editions, 280 pages, including a 1:1 000 000 fractional map of China's vegetation type 60, a 1:10 000 000 map of China's topography, a map of China's vegetation, and a map of China's vegetation zoning. Compare the legend.

This Atlas is a basic map of the national natural resources and natural geographical features. It is an indispensable scientific data and an important basis for studying global environmental change, biodiversity, environmental protection and monitoring.
