Wetland vegetation support a high biodiversity and plays an important ecological and hydrological roles in the environment. Hangzhou city with highly significant wetland vegetation biodiversity, lies in Zhejiang province, is very famous in China. The wetland areas are 28.9×104 ha, about 17.4% of total area of Hangzhou city. The types of wetland vegetation are multiplicity and the vegetation biodiversity is abundant. But with the rapid urbanization process in Hangzhou city, the decrease of wetland areas in peri-urban region constitutes a severe problem, which will eventually lead to the loss of wetland vegetation biodiversity and its functions. So it is very important to carry out a project on the research of wetland vegetation biodiversity conservation and sustainable use in Hangzhou city. It’s very significant for wetland vegetation biodiversity conservation and sustainable development, improvement of peri-urban ecosystem services and life quality.
The project long term goal is to secure the conservation of globally significant wetland vegetation biodiversity in China and establish wetland vegetation biodiversity conservation and sustainable use as a routine consideration in national, provincial and local government decision making and action. The objective is providing science reference for Hangzhou government supporting policy of the urban wetland vegetation biodiversity conservation and sustainable use.
