The LMEB has some megaphanerophytes, more microphanerophytes, and conspicuously less hemicryptophytes and epiphytes than the other two forests.
The LMEB has more macrophylls, and more compound and entire leaved species than the other two forests.
Excluding ferns, 329 seed plant species in LMEB, 164 species in SWEB, 129 species in SWEB on limestone, and 142 species in UMEB, are analyzed for biogeographical attributes based on Wu's works (Wu, 1991; Wu et al., 2006) (see the Methods section).
The low-lying tropical montane evergreen broad-leaved forest (LMEB) of southern Yunnan, has a higher diversity of tree species.
The LMEB is conspicuously different from the other two forests in habitats, floristic composition, species diversity, physiognomy and geographical elements, and should be classified as a different vegetation type.
In summary, the LMEB, with physiognomic and floristic similarities to the lower montane evergreen broad-leaved forest in mainland southeast Asia, is part of the later; the SWEB and UMEB, which have the highest ratio of Sino-Himalayan and Chinese endemic species in their floristic compositions, are unique in southwestern China, although the UMEB has similar physiognomic features to the upper montane forest in tropical Asia.
