About the Conference

There are more than 200,000 species of plants distributed in the global tropical regions, accounting for more than 60% of higher plants, with extremely rich genetic and functional diversity. Tropical plants have long adapted to high light, high temperature, rainy and biological stress environments, forming a common mechanism of high bioaccumulation and environmental adaptation. Compared with major food and cash crops, tropical cash plants have huge potential for genetic improvement, which can meet the diversified needs of human beings. The era of genomics and multiomics provides opportunities for the simultaneous and rapid development of most small crops. This conference intend to invite global scientific elites to share the latest research progress in tropical plants and cash crops, smart ideas and major scientific issues in the future. The conference will be held every December in Hainan or other places. Focus on the scientific and technological needs of modern agricultural development and ecological environment protection along the Belt and Road, and seek extensive scientific and technological cooperation and academic exchanges. The Tropical Plants academic journal will adhere to the rigorous, pragmatic and innovative concept, lead the development of cutting-edge science and technology in the field, and provide professional services and academic exchanges.
