About the journal

PDCA is an international journal having a geographical focus on Central Asia and devoted to the taxonomy, biogeography and evolution of fungi and plants, including fossils. Plant population and community ecology, plant-animal interactions and conservation biology are also welcome. Descriptive taxonomic papers should normally constitute a comprehensive treatment of a group. Papers on individual species and especially nomenclatural papers must contain significant new information of broad interest.
