This year, the institute kept strengthening the construction of research platforms and talent teams. The Plant Science Database Center was approved, which is one of the 18 scientific database center of CAS. Qianjiangyuan forest biodiversity field monitoring and research station has been approved as a national field station, which provides important support for the development of the discipline. Two big research teams and three research groups were newly built up. Several researchers got awards from the state and CAS.

In 2021, surrounding with the “The 14th Five Year Plan”, the institute will systematically plan the long-term development of discipline and interdisciplinary fields; strive to accelerate the pace of innovation and development.
