DescriptionA paper presented at the 1996 International Symposium on the "Rare, Threatened, and Endangered Floras of Asia and the Pacific Rim" at the Institute of Botany, Academia Sinica, Taiwan is available here online. The paper documents the "diverse and highly endemic flora" found on the southwest Pacific Island of New Caledonia, "one of the world's most interesting and exciting areas for botanists". Topics discussed include the geography, geology, climate, vegetation and the conservation problems facing this biodiversity "hot spot". The text is interspersed with colour images, slides and links to related sites.
