Sexual systems, particularly dioecy, and the habit correlations were examined for 3052 native angiosperms in Taiwan and 689 species from its outlying Orchid Island, and compared among different vegetation types. The majority of angiosperms in Taiwan are hermaphrodites (74.4%, N = 2272), followed by monoecious taxa (11.2%, N = 341), and then dioecious taxa (7.9%, N = 240) and polygamous taxa (6.5%, N = 199). The incidence of dioecy in Taiwan (7.9%) and Orchid Island (11.9%, N = 82) exceeded… CONTINUE READING
