Description brief
The Flower Guide of Tibet website presents some of the photos of plants taken by a collaborative effort of the Field Museum, Smithsonian Institution, and Kunming Institute of Botany of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. It also includes a description, phenology, distribution and habitat of the plants. 
Biodiversity in this region has in general been little studied and poorly documented, and historically this politically sensitive, geographically remote region has received few non-Chinese biologists. The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation supported the project on the floristics and conservation research of Himalayan part of western China.
