The diversity of plant species in China is extraordinary. With an area approximately that of the continental United States, China has nearly twice as many vascular plant species, about 30,000 or one-eighth of the world’s total. The Flora of China describes and otherwise documents these species, and these volumes of beautifully detailed illustrations, drawn by the finest Chinese botanical artists, complement the species descriptions in the text volumes. Volume 25 is devoted to one plant family of enormous significance and interest: the orchid family (Orchidaceae), with 1,388 species in China, of which 491 are endemic.
