Zhong Yang, a sower on Ti­bet’s snow-cov­ered plateau

“roof of the world” in the Ti­bet au­ton­o­mous re­gion.

Zhong’s life came to an end on Sept 25, 2017, in a car ac­ci­dent in Er­dos, In­ner Mon­go­lia au­ton­o­mous re­gion.

The sci­en­tist once said, “All lives must end, but I am fear­less be­cause my stu­dents will con­tinue the re­search.”

From the north­ern Ti­betan Plateau to the south­ern Ti­bet val­ley and the Yar­lung Zangbo River, we can see the species col­lected dur­ing Zhong’s spec­tac­u­lar life and gain glimpses of his long pil­grim­age as a col­lec­tor of nat­u­ral beauty.
