Introduction

Iriomote Island covers only 0.077% of Japan, in which ca. 1300 species (1/5 species native to Japan) have been recognized. However, the botanical survey is limited and our knowledge about the flora of Iriomote is still incomplete. This website tries to overview the plant diversity of Iriomote Island.
