Yangmingshan National Park is not only a park where people visit, but is also a very popular sightseeing location. Due to its latitude and longitude, its climate is both a subtropical climate zone and warm temperate climate zone. As a result, its ecology is quite rich. According to an ecological survey, there are currently at least 34 species of mammals, 123 species of birds, 22 species of amphibians, 53 species of reptiles, 22 species of fish, 662 species of insects, and thousands of other invertebrates. The plants here can be classified into three categories: aquatic, grassland, and forest vegeration. They are affected by the volcanic geology and northeastern monsoons, and the combination of low-temperature and high-humidity characteristics during the winter result in plants that originally grew at an altitude of 2000 meters. There are as many as 1,359 species of domesticated vascular plant species here alone, with 1,000 wild tree species. There's also the vegetation of the grasslands and forests, which includes red nanmu, large-leaved nanmu, poplars, wheel trees, dark-spotted cherry, and more. Artificially planted tree species include acacia, Japanese cedar, maples, black pine, and Luchu pine. Aquatic plants include bog bulrush, Taiwan bulrush, and Chinese water chestnuts. The isoetes taiwanensis is a plant that's endemic to Taiwan alone. Every February and March is Yangmingshan's most famed flowering season, Besides cherry blossoms, there's azaleas, camellias, peach blossoms, and wild peonies to admire. From March until the end of April is the giant taro season. There's lilies during May, green maple during October, and silvergrass from the end of October until mid-November. They form a sea of flowers, that sway gently in the wind, forming a magnificent sight. When visiting during the flowering season, be sure to take public transportation so that you avoid traffic jams.
