By Chunlin Long, Heng Li and W. Chen     (Buy)


The species diversity of Amorphophallus in China was studied and revised in the present paper. Twenty-five years after the publication of the Araceae in Flora Reipublicae Popularis Sinicae, the species number of Amorphophallus has been increased from 6 to 23. Among these 23 known species, 11 are endemic to China and 12 are edible. The distribution of Amorpbopballus is uneven in China, with Yunnan the richest province in species diversity of the genus.
