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. Explore the seasonal changes of Taiwan through
