N. T. P. Trang, Triest, L., Trang, N. T. P., and Triest, L., Genetic structure of the threatened Hopea chinensis in the Quang Ninh Province, Vietnam, vol. 15, p. -, 2016.

Hopea chinensis Hand-Mazz (synonym H. hongayensis Tardieu), is a wind and insect pollinated species. It is a threatened species known only from two locations: Quang Ninh (Vietnam) and Guangxi (China). As an endemic species, it is worth preserving both for dipterocarp biodiversity, as well as for its medicinal use and economic importance as a fine wood. The genetic diversity and population genetic structure of H. chinensis was investigated, using natural populations distributed throughout the Ba Mun and Cai Lim islands, Quang Ninh Province, Vietnam.
