The in situ conservation of state key protected wild plants in national nature reserves in China


Abstract:
In situ conservation, that is, the establishment of nature reserves, is the best means to protect rare and endangered wild plants.By collecting and analyzing the distribution information on state key protected wild plants, we investigated the protected conditions of these species within the national natural reserves as of 2008 based on the data available in China.The results indicated that totally 237 state key protected wild plant species(including varieties) have been protected in the national natural reserve system, accounting for 80.07% of the total amount and including 56 species listed in Class I.At the provincial level, national nature reserves in Yunnan, Guangxi, Sichuan, Guizhou and Hunan provinces contributed the most to the protection of state key protected wild plants.We also determined the major distribution areas of these protected wild plants and pointed out the hot spots for in situ conservation by analyzing distribution conditions of protected plants unprotected by national nature reserves in provinces.

Key words:nature reserve,wild plants,in situ conservation,hot spots
