Mangroves Growing in Japan

Article metrics


HAVING resided for some years in the eastern part of Japan, and having travelled from time to time in various parts of the island of Kiusiu, and from thence to the Farther Isles within the southern boundary of the Luchuan Archipelago, I have noticed that the tropical and sub-tropical types in the Japanese flora are much more marked than has hitherto been supposed. As an instance of this, a selection from the types of mangroves will probably be of more interest, not only to botanists, but also to all lovers of nature, than a list of plant-names.
