Variation in Mountain Vegetation Composition between the East and the West Sides of Southern Taiwan
In this study, we classified twenty associations, 179 families, 810 genera, 1897 species, and identified 291 rare species. The vegetation units were named following floristic-sociological approach. A
Altitudinal distribution patterns of plant species in Taiwan are mainly determined by the northeast monsoon rather than the heat retention mechanism of Massenerhebung
There is an increasing tendency of species altitudinal distribution with the decrease of latitude on the east-facing aspect of the main sections of the Central Mountain Range in Taiwan, and the previously-proposed distribution pattern that claimed that species alt longitudinal distribution descends gradually towards the north and south ends of Taiwan should be revised.
