Major Research Achievements

In the past 5 years (2006-2010), we have successfully accomplished flora investigation in Yongde Snow Mountains (2003-2006) and Jiaozi Snow Mountains (2009-2010). Plus the ongoing surveys of Cangshan Mountains and Northwest of Yunnan, ca. 20,000 specimens were collected and 8 new species were found. These first-hand data have being used as the main reference for some Nature Reserve foundation, and the basis for other scientific studies. Systematically, we confirmed phylogenetic positions of Carlemmaniaceae, Trochodendraceae, Calamagrostis, Miscanthus subgen. Rubimons and Saniculiphyllum, and analyzed species relationships in the genus of Pyrola and Chelonopsis using the DNA markers and morphological evidence. Biogeographically, we reconstructed evolutionary history of a high isolated eastern Asian species of Dipentoden sinicus based on population level. In addition, we also resolved a series of nomenclature problems, including validation of the names of the Chelonopsis chekiangensis, Lindernia megaphylla, Scropuhlaria macrocarpa and Aristolochia wuana, and typification of the name Chelonopsis albiflora. In all, there were thirty three related papers and two monographies published.
