KIB Researcher Argues the Recovery of Authorship of Parashorea chinensis in Dipterocarpaceae
source:Key Laboratory of Biodiversity and Biogeography, CAS     author:SHUI Yumin     2011-12-07

Parashorea chinensis Wang Hsie is a momentous timber tree and is ecologically important in tropical forests in parts of southern China and adjacent Indo-china as one of the tallest trees in the region. The plant usually grows in dense forests at middle elevations of 300 to1100 m in the valleys and on mountain slopes.

In southern China, it is locally known as “Chuan Ban Shu”, which means “wood used for boats”. At present, the species has become very rare primarily due to illegal logging, and has been listed as one of the first-grade protected plant species in China. Its authorship, “Wang Hsie”, consists of two parts in Chinese, with“Wang Tian Shu” as the vernacular name for Parashorea chinensis and “Hsie Zuo Zu” as the “cooperation group.” SHUI Yumin et.al. argue that the author of Parashorea chinensis should not be abbreviated as“H. Wang”in Flora of China. Please see the detailed and interest content in the publication (Taxon 60: 1165-1167, 2011).
