Scientists have found what is believed to be three new species of amphibians and five new species of plants in a China-Myanmar joint biodiversity survey.

Fourteen researchers collected more than 3,300 specimens of plants and animals in the field survey in the Htamanthi Wildlife Sanctuary in the Sagaing Region of northern Myanmar between November and December last year, the Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden of the Chinese Academy of Sciences said Wednesday.

China and Myanmar have jointly conducted nine field biodiversity surveys in northern Myanmar since 2014.
