Asia is the world’s most densely populated continent with sixty percent of the
world’s people living there. It is one of the largest biodiversity regions in the world and
home to some of the countries richest in medicinal and aromatic plant resources. It has
diverse plant flora however, species richness is concentrated mainly in tropical and subtropical
regions. Six of the world’s 18 biodiversity hot-spots: the Eastern Himalayas, the
Western Ghats of South India, North Borneo, Peninsular Malaysia, Sri Lanka and the
Philippines are part of Asia.
