Plant Diversity is an international plant science journal that publishes substantial papers that
● advance our understanding of past and current distribution of plants,
● contribute to development of more phylogenetically accurate taxonomic classifications,
● present new findings on or insights into evolutionary processes and mechanisms that are of interest to the community of plant systematic and evolutionary biologists.
While the focus of the journal is on biodiversity, ecology and evolution of East Asian flora, it is not limited to these topics. Applied evolutionary issues, such as climate change and conservation biology, are welcome, especially if they address conceptual problems. Theoretical papers are equally welcome. Preference is given to concise, clearly written papers focused on precisely framed questions or hypotheses. Papers that are purely descriptive have a low chance of acceptance.
We welcome your submissions for reporting the best science from the Belt and Road region. We will try to do our better job to facilitate your publication and we do appreciate your support!
