Special Issue: Plant Species with Extremely Small Populations

Published 09 April, 2016

Plant species with extremely small populations (PSESP) refers to plants with unique topography and habitat, extremely limited distribution range, enormous pressure due to habitat destruction and habitat in plant diversity hotspots with poor economic development. PSESP, a new conservation action concept first promulgated in Yunnan Province, is becoming more widely accepted in China. Several national and regional conservation strategies and actions for conserving China’s PSESP have been implemented recently. Therefore, any papers regarding conservation efforts aimed at PSESP are welcomed in the forthcoming special issue of Plant Diversity, including new thinking and creative methodologies (e.g., genomic conservation methods) for conserving PSESP.

It should be noted that all manuscripts will be subject to rigorous peer review. Acceptance is not guaranteed.

We cordially invite you to submit or recommend papers through paper submission system.

All accepted papers will be published by Plant Diversity (ISSN: 2468-2659), a peer-reviewed open access journal that can ensure the widest dissemination of your published work, and all publication costs will be covered by Plant Diversity.
