    FLORA MONTANA FOROSAE
    5
    @@It is a very interesting matter to compare this flora with the floras of the neighbornuing countries, and to consider their relations. So far as I am aware, no attempt of this kind has yet been made.
    In the year 1905, I published a paper1) "On the Distribution of the Formosan Conifers" in which I pointed out that the flora of the Conifers of Formosa has a far closer relation to that of Japan than to that of China, regardless of geographica I proximity, In this paper, I have compared all families of flowering plants in the montana zone, and found that the conclusion I had made from the study of Conifers holds good for the general features of the flora. I shall refer to this matter later on.
    @@Before we go further in the discussion of this interesting subject, it is necessary to consider the elements of the montane flora. A list of plants, therefore, should properly be given here, with indications as to their distribution.
    @@Regarding the remarks as to distribution given in this list, I have referred to the following literature and herbarium.
