To undertake a survey of the trade in Chinese Non-CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species) plants in order to assess the species involved and gather information on their conservation status, and thus help preclude the necessity of listing these species on CITES. It will also identify potential detrimental trade and place the UK trade in the global market context.
