Taiwan, situated off the southeast coast of China and separated from the Mainland China by the Taiwan Strait, is located in the Western Pacific between Japan and the Philippines. Eastern two-thirds of this small island is mostly rugged mountains and flat to gently rolling plains in west. Due to its subtropical climate and highly changeful terrain, Taiwan supports a diverse flora of over 4,000 vascular plants and six forest types. This range of flora in turn supports a rich fauna.
