 A total of 10,828 kinds of insects have settled down on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau so far, accounting for about one-eighth of China's total, according to a forum Tuesday.

The number is 1,500 more than that in the 1960s and 1970s, according to the ongoing Qinghai-Tibet Plateau Insects Forum.

Slated for Tuesday to Friday, the forum has attracted over 150 scholars and experts to showcase research results including the origin, classification and diversity of insects on the plateau.

Exhibitions and experiential activities centered on insects will also be held during the four-day event.

Known for its unique ecological environment and rich biodiversity, the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau is a cradle of rare, characteristic and endemic species.
