Revising the Yunnan Key Protected Wild Plants List

Key Protected Wild Plants List plays an important role in forestry enforcement, science research and biodiversity conservation. Revise work contribute to keep the plant names accurate on list and revised list can timely show the achievement of biodiversity conservation in Yunnan province. According to the Flora of China and some plants databases, this paper revised the Yunnan Key Protected Wild Plants List published by government in 1989. Results showed that 214 species on list included 60 synonyms or basionyms, 28 species′ Chinese names changed, 9 species with incorrect Latin names, 3 misidentified species and 5 nomen nudum. This revision results will add more understandings to implement and manage the list. Finally this paper suggests establishing some criteria and a mechanism to revise the list in the future.
