A story told by short, strong, surviving plants
East Asian countries are geographically adjacent to each other and share a long history with cultural similarities. However, the frequent occurrence of fierce confrontations and disputes between countries has led to a hostile atmosphere, which has led to scientific indifference to the natural environment of neighboring countries. To overcome this, the East Asia Biodiversity Conservation Network (EABCN) was established in 2014. The goal of EABCN is to enhance understanding of the natural environment and ecosystem surrounding the unique and abundant plant and vegetative structures of East Asia and to promote research cooperation to preserve biodiversity in the region. "The Story of Tall Strong Preserved Plants" is a sequel to EABCN's 2014 book "Important Plants of East Asia" and is expected to help promote understanding and interest in East Asia's rich ecosystem. The book tells the story of 10 small but strong species of surviving plants (4 types of nazaars and 6 types of pizza plants). Pinus pumila, Taxus caespitosa, Thuja koraiensis, Juniperus chinensis var. sargentii, Siromi (Empetrum nigrum var. japonicum) and Amma apparica. Although it did not contain all of these information, it intended to provide specific information on classification, form, distribution, habitat, environment, ecology, utilization, conservation, natural history, climate change and biodiversity. I hope that the story of a small ten species of small river, a precious terrestrial species, will help readers redefine natural history and have new eyes to predict the future that could occur if global warming leads to the current trend. This publication was designed to promote scientific cooperation and information exchange among EABCN member countries to enhance understanding of the past, present and future of plants and ecological environments in East Asia and to enhance international cooperation and interest in protecting small, strong plants from global warming and artificial disturbances. It is hoped that the publication of this booklet will spread the awareness that East Asia is a community, and that research cooperation in the region will be more active to preserve not only these 10 short surviving plants but also other plant species.
