Results of the Removal of Exotic Plants in the Guanwu Area of Shei-Pa National Park

The high level of biodiversity in the Guanwu area has led to a complex composition of flora and a rich forest environment where native plants such as Impatiens devolii T.C. Huang and Gentiana arisanensis can be found.

The invasion of exotic plants has had unmistakable ecological impacts on the habitats of native plants; therefore, the removal of these exotic plants is of utmost importance. The most suitable time for removal is during the early summer and autumn when the fruits of naturalized plants are not yet mature.

The Shei-Pa National Park Headquarters invited the Hsinchu Forest District Office of the Forestry Bureau, volunteers of the Shei-Pa National Park Headquarters, and the general public to participate in the removal of exotic plants, mainly focusing on the removal of the common dandelion and rescue grass, among others. The Shei-Pa National Park Headquarters will be holding activities from time to time hoping to bring new ecological opportunities to the environment by removing exotic plants from the Guanwu area.

Seeds of exotic plant species can easily spread, for example, by sticking on vehicle tires or on people. Visitors are requested to help prevent introducing exotic plant seeds into the park.
