 Yulong Snow Mountain (Jade Dragon Snow Mountain), located in northwestern Yunnan, is belonging to one of three biodiversity centers of China. In this paper, we analyzed the composition of seed plant resource species in Yulong Snow Mountain based on databases and checklists of seed plants, and specimens collected recently in this area. More than 2815 seed plant species in Yulong Snow Mountain region were recorded, among which 96 species are endangered. Furthermore, we classified and evaluated these plant resources based on their use and biological characteristics. In addition, we propose a systematic and sustainable approach to solve the conflicts between the conservation and the economical development. This study updated the checklist of seed plants of Lijiang Alpine Botanical Garden, while also documented the basic information of plant resources in Yulong Snow Mountain. These findings provided scientific basis for future research and conservation.
