Flora of the Pan-Himalaya
The Pan-Himalayas (the Himalayas and adjacent regions) forms a natural geographic unit, from the Wakhan Corridor and northeastern Hindu Kush eastwards to the Hengduan Mountains via Karakorum and the Himalayas. This region covers the northeastern corner of Afghanistan, northern Pakistan, northern India, Nepal, Bhutan, northern Myanmar, and southwest China (S Tibet, SE Qinghai, SE Gansu, W Sichuan and NW Yunnan). It is has the most diverse topography and landscape in the world and covers three of the 34 biodiversity hotspots in the world, where a rough estimate of 20,000 species of vascular plants can be found.

The Flora of Pan-Himalaya will be published in 50 volumes (ca. 80 books), with large families divided into two to seven parts.

It will be the culmination of a decade or of international effort involving hundreds of scientists under the direction of Hong de Yuan, in collecting and identifying plants, many of which were previously unknown, of the whole Himalaya region. The series will constitute an indispensable resource for all those involved in plant conservation, biodiversity and taxonomy.

The publication schedule will be based on the availability of manuscripts. The classification systems used in this Flora will reflect current understanding of phylogenetic relationships of the plant groups. The APG III system will be adopted for angiosperms, and up-to-date phylogenetic systems of gymnosperms, ferns and lycophytes will also be reflected in treating these groups.
