From: Investigation of floristic similarities between Taiwan and terrestrial ecoregions in Asia using GBIF data

Fig. 4

Floristic relationships between 22 geographical localities of Taiwan (GLT) and 34 ecoregions in Asia were analyzed by cluster analysis, using simple nearest neighbor algorithm and Bray–Curtis dissimilarity method. Non-endemic angiosperm species in Taiwan (NEAST) were used for the cluster analysis. The ecoregions of cold winter desert and temperate needle-leaved forests were the first cluster and came out as the most deviating regions. The second cluster was comprised of many ecoregions and GLTs. Deep in the second cluster, tropical and subtropical ecoregions and some GLTs were grouped together. ERG is the acronym of ecoregion. The numbers after ERG and dash are the number of ecoregions listed in Table 1 and Fig. 2. The number and acronyms of 22 GLTs are the same as in Fig. 1
