The northern tropical karst seasonal rain forest, best preserved in Nonggang National Nature Reserve, Guangxi, is the most remarkable type of karst forest in the world. This limestone karst forest has a high species richness, abundant endemic biological species. In this issue, Wang et al. and Huang et al. reported species composition and spatial distribution, numerical classification of associations and relationships of these associations with environmental factors in a 15 hectare plot (for details see pages 141–156 and 157–166). The picture shows the g eomorphic feature of Chinese north-tropical zone karst cluster-peach. (Photographed by Zaoxin Yan)
