The investigation on natural growth region of Abeliophyllum distichum Nakai
Lee, Woo-Tchul ; Kil, Bong-Seop ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 21, issue 1, 1991, Pages 1~1
As one of the Korean endemic species, Abeliophyllum distichum Nakai were classified in to 1 variety,4 forma or 5 taxa and distributed in middle province mainly, from western region of gwanseu prov. to south prov. in Korea. In middle prov. (Chinchon and Koesan) A. distichum species were growing in west slope of gravelley field and being familiar with fair and being familiar with Spiraea prunifolia var. simpliciflora, whereas, in south prov. (Yongdong and Puan), those species were growing with Quercus variabilis-Zelkova serrata association in mixed and had high affinity with Ligustrum obtusiform, Securinega suffuticosa, Ampelopsis brevipedunculata var. heterophylla, Pueraria thunbergiana, Carex humilis and Oplismenus undulatifolius. Because of changing habitat of the species by building up Puan Dam and also Pyonsanbando might be south boundary region of geographical distribution, it was worth while to keep preservation of A. disticum species and their natural growth region, Puan and Yongdong, by doing endevour of the authorities concerned actively.
A palynotaxonomic study of the genus Fatsia Decne. & Planch. and its relatives (Araliaceae)
Lee, Chung-Hee ; Lee, Sang-Tae ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 21, issue 1, 1991, Pages 9~9
The pollen morphology of 6 species and 2 varieties belonging to Fatsia, Oplopanax and Kalopanx, which have palmately simple leaves in common, were investigated by LM and SEM. Boninofatsia, sometime treated as Fatsia, was not distinguished from the latter palynologically and its generic position was not supported. Oplopanax and Kalopanax, although both possess the same reticulate sculpturing pattern, are well distinguished from each other. The former has the semi-triangular polar view, and the weakly or prominently lalongate os, whereas the latter has the triangular polar view, the ectexine bridge at the colpus, and the lalongate os with a vestibulum. Palynologically O. japonicus with the colporate aperture was distinct from O. horridus and O. elatus with the colporoidate one. K. septemlobus var. maximowiczii and K. septemlobus var. septemlobus were not distinguishable except their pollen size, i .e. the grain size of K. septemlobus var. moximowiczii was smaller than that of var. septemlobus.
Epidermal patterns of leaf blades in Korean sedge taxa characterized by SEM and LM (III. Scirpus)
Oh, Yong-Cha ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 21, issue 1, 1991, Pages 27~27
The epidermal patterns of four taxa (3 species and 1 subspecies) of Korean Scirpus were investigated by using SEM and LM. Epidermal patterns of the leaf blades are characteristics and useful in identification and classification of Scirpus species. As the result of this study, the shape of epidermal elements such as subsidiary cells, wavy of intercostal cell walls, shape of interstomatal cells, cuticle, papillae, prickles, silica body and the arrangement of each element are considered to significant taxonomic characters in the sedge taxa.
Studies on the wing petal morphology of the Sophora group
Chung, Young-Jae ; Lee, Sang-Tae ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 21, issue 1, 1991, Pages 37~37
The wing petal morphology of Sophora group, including 37 species, 5 subspecies, 7 varieties of 10 genera except Neoharmsia from a total of 11 genera, was investigated. It was possible to classify the genera and species on the basis of the types of sculpturing and nervation, the size of claw and blade, the states of auricle and margin, etc. The wing morphology was quite variable in Sophora, however, it was not able to distinguish Echinosophora from the Sophora species.
Morphological variation and taxonomy of Desmodium podocarpium (Leguminosae) in southern Korea
Choi, Byoung-Hee ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 21, issue 1, 1991, Pages 55~55
Morphological variation of 16 Desmodium podocarpium populations in southern Korea is examined using the multivarite analyses including principal components analysis and discriminant analysis. Results of multivarite analyses showed no overlap between ssp. fallax and other taxa, but some overlap among the populations of ssp. podocarpium, var. oxyphyllum and var. mandshuricum. Subsp. fallax is also correctly classified from var. oxyphyllum and var. mandshuricum in discriminant analysis. In morphology, var. mandshuricum appears to be most similar to var. oxyphlium; morphological data supports that var. mandshuricum is most closely related to var. oxyphyllum, However, var. mandshuricum is distinguished from var. oxphyllum in discriminant analysis using the leaf characters. Discriminant analysis also showed that populations of var. oxyphyllum and var. mandshuricum are morphologically distinct.
A taxonomical review of Ixeris s. l. (Compositae-Lactuceae) - Karyological and fruit wall characteristics -
Pak, Jae-Hong ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 21, issue 1, 1991, Pages 71~71
The history of infrageneric classification and recent studies on the taxonomic characters of Ixeris s. l. (Compositae-Lactuceae) are reviewed. The genus Ixeris s. l. is re-examined based on the data from the fruit wall anatomy and karyology, and it turned out that Ixeris s. l. should be devided into three genera: Ixeris s. str., Ixeridium and Crepidiastrum. Ixeris is characterized by the basic chromosome number of x= 8 and 10 costae in the cross section of winged type achenes possessing libriform fiber and sclereid-fiber cells. Ixeridium possesses the basic chromosome number of x=7 and 5-12 costae in ribbed type achene only with libriform fiber cells, while Crepidiastrum has the basic chromosome number of x=5 and 10-20 costae in winged type achenes with libriform fiber, and sclereid-fiber cells. It was found in a series of studies that karyological as well as fruit anatomical data are well in agreement with gross morphological characters. Therefore these criteria proved to be very important for taxonomic recognition of Ixeris s. l.
