In the last march 2013, researchers from DENG Min’s group of Plant Systematics & Evolutionary Biology and MA Jinshuang’s group of Plant Taxonomy in Shanghai Chenshan Plant Science Research Center
, Chinese Academy of Sciences, reported two new progresses on the study of plant taxonomy and systematic, these two achievements specifically including Dr. DENG Min’s research ‘Comparative morphology of leaf epidermis in the genus Lithocarpus
and its implication in leaf epidermal feature evolution in Fagaceae, this study has been published online in Plant Systematics and Evolution
. Another study is Professor MA Jinshuang’s taxonomy work about ‘A new species of Euphorbia
(Euphorbiaceae) from Guangxi, China, this study has been published online in Phytotaxa.
Their study, which could be lead new research progress on plant systematic study of other plant taxa, appears a good beginning on research strength and explorative atmosphere in Shanghai Chenshan Plant Science Research Center. It is also a milestone as the center’s research work in less than 3 years within the first phase since it has been built.
