    FLORA MONTANA FORMOSAE
    33
    Thus, I divided the Chino-Japanese flora into two florulae, one is the central florula, the other, the border florula.
    Regarding the present subject of the montane flora of the island, I see that my former conclusion will hold equally good of the formation of this flora.
    Taking all these cases into account, I have come to the conclusion that the similarity of the floras of Formosa and Japan may have been caused, on the one hand, by the existence formerly of a land-mass between the islands, and, on the other, by the same insular conditions caused by the depression forming the inner seas in more recent geological ages.
    3) Genera. Aspect of the Vegetation.
    The vegetation of the montane zone of Formosa varies considerably according to the height. As Mt. Morrison presents various climatal features from subtropical through temperate up to cold regions, the vegetation of this mountain will give us a fair idea of the general aspect of the growth in the hill
    regions of the island.
    As I have already mentioned, a botanical excursion was carried out on the mountain by Messrs. T. KAWAKAMI. H. NAGA- SAWA and G. NAKAHAHA, and a report1) of the journey was published by Mr. T. MAWAKAMI in the Tokyo Botanieal Magnzine. As his report is the only publication relating to that mountain, I take the liberty of drawing some descriptions from it.
    @@It was on the 28th of October, 1905, that the party left Kagi, a small town on the north-western foot of the mountain.
