continental South-east Asia floral region

continental South-east Asia floral region Part of R. Good's (1974, The Geography of the Flowering Plants) Palaeotropical floral kingdom, which lies within the Indo-Malaysian subkingdom. Floristically it is a poorly documented region, transitional between the rich floras of China to the north and Malaysia to the south. There are relatively few endemic genera (see endemism), probably around 250, though the proportion of endemic species is thought to be high. This region is very likely the source of such important crop plants as rice, tea, and citrus fruit. See also floral province and floristic region.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
