It has become an action plan to develop biodiesel in China. The botanical and laboratory investigations together with literature surveys had been used to prospect potential plants for biodiesel development. Based on field surveys and collections of specimens and samples, 422 oil-bearing plant species had been documented from Yunnan, the richest province with plant species diversity in the country. The oil content, acid value, iodine value, saponification value, and fatty acid composition of plant samples had been tested and assessed. The results revealed that Camellia oleifera var. monosperma, Michelia sphaerantha, Euonymus tingens, Daphniphyllum paxianum, Trichosanthes rubriflos, Symplocos chinensis and Daphniphyllum macropodum might be selected as the potential plant species for biodiesel development in China.
