The third field biodiversity survey in Northern Myanmar

Under the invitation of Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection, Myanmar, Prof. QUAN Rui-Chang led delegates from XTBG, FRI and Staff

        Under the invitation of Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection, Myanmar, Prof. QUAN Rui-Chang led delegates from XTBG, FRI and Staff of Putao NWCD office to conduct a biodiversity field survey in Hponkanrazi Wild Sanctuary, Putao County, Northern Myanmar, from April 23 to May 21, 2016.
        This period was during the rainy season of Northern Myanmar; the field teammates worked extremely hard and overcame many difficulties to successfully finish the third field biodiversity survey. 315 plant species with 1000 samples were collected. We also gathered the flowers of some unidentified plants from the last two field surveys, and more possible new plant species were found among the samples.
