The proportions of angiosperms with seven geographical distribution groups show different trends among geographical localities of Taiwan (GLTs). Angiosperms with tropical and subtropical distribution are dominant members in all the GLTs. The proportions of angiosperms with tropical distributions (Group B, C and D) increase from northern to southern Taiwan but decrease from low to high elevations. The proportions of angiosperms with subtropical distributions (Group E and F) present opposite trends to that with tropical distributions. Angiosperms with temperate distribution (Group G) are not dominant members of GLTs at higher elevations. The numbers at X axis are the numbers of GLTs listed in Fig. 1. At bottom of the figure, four lines and four numbers below the lines represent the upper altitudinal limits of GLTs
