摘要:

在《对中国植被分类系统的认知和建议》(简称《认知和建议》)的基础上, 参考近期国内外植被分类研究成果, 再次讨论了中国植被分类系统和单位, 统一了各级单位划分依据, 增补了高、中、低各等级分类的具体建议, 并对《认知和建议》一文中相关部分, 特别是植被型一级做了修订。将该修订方案与联合国教科文组织《世界植被分类与制图》、美国联邦地理数据委员会《美国植被分类规范》, 以及Braun-Blanquet的分类方案进行对比, 以便于同行间相互了解和交流。

关键词: 植被分类, 植被型, 群系, 群丛, 建议方案

Abstract:
The vegetation classification in China was updated by referring to recent advances for vegetation classification worldwide and on the basis of our former paper Recognition and Proposal on the Vegetation Classification System of China (hereafter, “Recognition and Proposal”). In this revision, the criteria for vegetation classification were discussed and unified, and a quantified standard for high, medium, and low level units in a new hierarchical classification scheme was supplemented. Compared with the old classification scheme in “Recognition and Proposal”, the units at the level of vegetation type were substantially changed. Finally, in order to improve mutual communication among international peers, a comparison was carried out between the new revised scheme and each of International Classification and Mapping of Vegetation of UNESCO, The National Vegetation Classification Standard of United States, and The Braun-Blanquet Classification Scheme.

Key words: vegetation classification, vegetation type, formation, association, suggested scheme
