The publications have provided information on the new pine species on the mountains of Moc Chau District, such as Pinus affarmandii  – the newly discovered species in this area; communities of Cephalotaxus mannii and Amentotaxus yunnanensis. These are the first species that have been found in this area. In addition, the publications also provide specific guidance to breed conifers in nursery conditions by breeding methodscompatible to the species.

This guidanceis crucial to the conservation of natural resources in general and to the conservation of conifers in particular as the limestone corridors Hoa Binh – Son La, namely Mai Chau – Moc Chau mountain is one of the areas of high value for biodiversity.  However, information on the species as well as the conservation of endangered species in this area has not been adequately studied and properlyconcerned.
