From jacket: China is well known the world over for its natural plant resources. For the investigation, collection, identification, introduction, acclimatization and utilization of plants, botanical gardens and arboreta have been established throughout the country in the past fifty years or so. Of these gardens and arboreta, twenty-one are included in this book in the order of their dates of construction. As the reader will see, they have one feature in common -- an ingenious combination of beautiful scenery and substantial scientific content. Thus, while they cater to man's aesthetical needs, they also provide botanists with facilities for scientiefi research and ordinary people with rudiments of plants. It is for the purpose of recording the developments and achievements of these botanical gardens and arboreat in the past fifty years that The Botanical Gardens of China is compiled. This handsomely illustrated book contains more than 650 photographs showing the landscapes of these gardens, the special, rare, or endangered plants which have been successfully introduced, and some of the results obtained in their research work.
