Abstract: In response to the Belt and Road Initiative and Chinese scientists’s “Going-Out Strategy, China and Myanmar have extensively cooperated in the field of biodiversity. In order to support the Southeast Asian Biodiversity Research Institute of Chinese Academy of Sciences to carry out botanical research, the informatization work team of the Kunming Institute of Botany CAS has constructed a data set and developed an information service platform of plant biodiversity in Myanmar. The data set has systematically filtered and integrated most of published biodiversity data and information scattered in different platforms in the world. It contains information on plant lists, chorography, specimen records and related literature. This data set covers about 15 thousand plant species in Myanmar, with 457.3 thousand data records in total. This integrated data set is expected to support botanical research of this region.
