The soil is very alkaline so only a tenacious bamboo grows. Very cool areas especially the mud volcanoes.
Not surprsingly, i suppose, when i googled those words you suggested, i came up with your post. It was top of the pops.
A guy I know down here has got a site up that we're using, amongst other things, as a place to document nature observations, with a particular emphasis on weather. This is a famously boring pursuit and not suitable for polite company, I am aware of that, but it does afflict a small percentage of the population, and for them, there's now this site in Taiwan: http://formosahut.com/
In particular, there is a wiki diary to record any nature observations that you may have made in your neck of the woods.
