This is volume 14a of the first full taxonomic account of these high-altitude plants of the Central Asian region covering large parts of Mongolia and China. It is based on materials kept in the Komarov Botanical Institute based on their collection begun by explorers and scientists in the nineteenth century. This volume covers the plants that play the most important role of providing vegetative cover as coenosis-forcing agents in steppes and barren lands, comprising several endemic and relict plants. Each entry includes complete information including general distribution and, if possible, a plate number. The illustrations are especially detailed. Distributed by Enfield.
