Systemactics is a science, which is very important for biodiversity conservation. In this review, the definition, main research topics, services and user needs of systematics are introduced, The information needs of biodiversity conservation are summarized, Through actual examples which apply systematic knowledge into the area of biodiversity conservation, the importance of systematics to biodiversity conservation is demonstrated. In view of the serious situation of systematic researches and problems existing in conservation activities in China, suggestions for strengthening systematic researches and its application in biodiversity conservation are proposed.
