Abstract: Plant science in China continues on the track of rapid development in 2018, with many remarkable achievements and a marked increase in number of original papers published in international top journals. The achivement “regulating the plant growth-metabolism balance to achieve sustainable agricultural development” was selected in the top ten progress of Chinese science in 2018, and “the history of angiosperm flora evolution in China” in the top ten progress of Chinese life science in 2018. Studies in rice and fruit and vegetable fields has been internationally leading. In this review, we summarize the significant progress in Chinese plant science in 2018, review the latest findings and hot events, and share the great achievements made by Chinese scientists.

Key words: China, plant science, research advances, 2018
