Acta Botanica Taiwanica (ISSN:0065-1125) was published in October 1947 as one of Science Reports of the National Taiwan University (NTU). In May 1948, Taiwania also lauched out by the Laboratory of Systematic Botany, Department of Botany, College of Science, NTU and is a journal of plant taxonomy and geobotany devoted to the floras of eastern Asia, Indo-Malaysia, the Western Pacific regions. Dr. Li, Hui-Lin is the chief editor. Years later, the new Editorial Board was leaded by Dr. Lee, S.C. who combined two journals to Taiwania and focus to all aspect of Plant Science. Because Acta zoologica Taiwanica (ISSN:1019-5858) is no longer being published in College of Life Science, Taiwania extended the study field of Zoology. Now Taiwania published regular quarterly and is the oldest English journal in Taiwan.

Taiwania is indexed Science Citation Index Expanded, BIOSIS PREVIEWS & Zoological Record (in Web of science); CAB Abstracts; Directory of Open Access Journal (DOAJ); Scopus and Ulrich's Periodical Directories. Taiwania has been honored to be the recipient of the Excellent Academic Journal Award from the National Science Council since 1996.
