A taxonomic study on six section subgenus Vigena Nees of Carex L. (Cyperaceae) in Korea

Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 33, issue 3, 2003, Pages 227~253
Morphological characters of C. kobomugi, C. gibba, C. echinata. C. remotiuscula. C. maakii. C. curta, and C. loliacea of genus Carex were rexamined. The epidermal patterns of perigynium, achene and leaf were investigated using by a scanning electron microscope(SEM) and a light microscope(LM). Morphological characters. such as length and width of stem and leaf, sheath, bract, spike, scale, perigynium, beak of perigynium, length of spike peduncle, size, and frequency of stomatal complex of leaf, number of bract, shape of stem transection, scale and apex of scale, beak and base of perigynium, achene, epidermal cell and cell wall of perigynium, achene, leaf epidermal patterns (fundamental epidermal cell and cell wall, silica body, subsidiary cell), hair, papillae, prickle present/absent of perigynium and leaf were useful for the identification of observed seven taxa. Examined six taxa of section Macrocephalae, Gibbae, Stellulatae, Elongatae, Ovales, and Heleonates were distint from each other with respect of length and width stem, leaf, bract, perigynium, perigynium beak, lenght of spike peduncle, perigynium, and leaf. A key based on data was presented here.
Pollen morphology of Thymelaeaceae in Korea

Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 33, issue 3, 2003, Pages 255~270
Pollen morphology of four genera (Daphne L. - 4 spp., Edgeworthia Meisn. - 1 sp., Wikstroemia Endl. - 2 spp., and Stellera L. 1 sp.), except 1 taxon (Diarthron Turcz. - 1 sp.) in Korean Thymelaeaceae were examined with light (LM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The size of grains (
) are varied from small (in Stellera) through medium (in Daphne and Wikstroemia) to large (in Edgeworthia). All studied taxa have monad, spheroidal, pantoporate (10-20) grains. The exine is reticulate, especially a typical "croton pattern" which is comprising rings of more or less trihedral subunits. Each triangular subunit is topped by a single microspinule, and the surface pattern is psilale. In Daphne, three types of subunit arrangement can be recognized; - (1) Type I : subunits are arranged circles and attached to each other or sometimes fused in part, (2) Type II: each subunit is trihedral and isolated distinctly, and (3) Type III: each subunit is isolated, but somewhat vague. Systematic implication of the present pollen data for the Korean Thymelaeaceae is also briefly discussed.
Viburnum japonicum (Caprifoliaceae) : an unrecorded species in Korea
Hong, Hang-Hwa ; Im, Hyoung-Tak ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 33, issue 3, 2003, Pages 271~277
We report an unrecorded species of Viburnum, V. japonicum (Thunb.) Sprengel, found in Gageo-do Island, a subtropical zone in Jeollanam-do Province. We named a species Foo-reun-ga-mak-sal. It is easily distinguishable from other recorded species of Viburnum by the characteristics such as exposed winter buds and indeciduous leaves with lustrous and glabrous texture.
Cytotaxonomic study of Korean Euphorbia L. (Euphorbiaceae)

Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 33, issue 3, 2003, Pages 279~293
Somatic chromosomes about 13 taxa of Korean Euphorbia L. was investigated to estimate its taxonomic significance. Somatic chromosome numbers of treated taxa were 2n= 12, 20, 22, 28, 40, 42, 56, therefore basic chromosome numbers of those were x=6, 7, 10, 11. The chromosome numbers of E. pallasii Turcz. (2n=20), E. hylonoma Hand.-Mazz (2n=20.), E. fauriei H. L
v. & Vaniot ex H. L
v (2n=28) and E. jolkini Boiss. (2n=28) were determined for the first time in this study. The chromosome numbers of four taxa were same as previous ones; E. sieboldiana Moor. & Decne. (2n=20), E. ebracteolata Hayata (2n=20), E. humifusa Willd. ex Schlecht. (2n=22). But those of six taxa were different; E. esula L (2n= 16, 20, 60, 64 vs 2n=20), E. helioscopia L. (2n=12, 42 vs 2n=42), E. lucorum Rupr. (2n=28, 40 vs 2n=56), E. pekinensis Rupr. in Maxim. (2n=24 vs 2n=28, 56), E. maculata L. (2n=28, 42 vs 2n=12), E. supina Raf. (n=7 vs 2n=40). E. ebracteolata, E. pallasii and E. hylonoma were distingushcd from the other taxa by the chromosome numbers, size and satellites, E. maculata, E. humifusa, E. supina had the different basic and somatic chromosome numbers in spite of the similar morphological. anatomical and palynological chracters. The chromosomal character of Korean Euphorbia was supported the Ma and Hu's systems, and as above results, it was found to be a good character in delimiting above sections and estimating relationships for some species.
An unrecorded species of Allium (Alliaceae) in Korea: A. longistylum Baker
Choi, Hyeok-Jae ; Oh, Byoung-Un ; Jang, Chang-Gee ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 33, issue 3, 2003, Pages 295~301
We reported an unrecorded species of the genus Allium (Alliaceae) which is growing along riversides in the central part of Korean peninsula. A. longistylum Baker, has been known to distribute only in China. The new common name, 'Gang-bu-chu', was given considering the habitat characteristics such as growing riversides in Korea. In this study, we described morphological characters, and provided illustrations as well as photographs of the habitat.
