Taiwan subtropical evergreen forests

WWF Abstract

Taiwan doesn't just experience typhoons, it is defined by them. Meaning "big winds" in Chinese, Taiwan is frequently hit by the typhoons that occur regularly in the region around the South China Sea. This island, the largest off the coast of China, is largely made up of granite mountains--some as high as 13,000 feet (4,000 m). Its north-south orientation and significant height allow a wide range of habitats that give rise to a high diversity of species.
