First Report of Asplenium yoshinagae (Aspleniaceae) from Korea and Its Phylogenetic Position Based on Morphology
Lee, Chang-Shook ; Kim, Jin-Ohk ; Lee, Nam-Sook ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 38, issue 2, 2008, Pages 79~91
Asplenium yoshinagae (Aspleniaceae), previously known only from Japan, southwest China to Himalaya, was found in Gageo-do, Heuksan-myeon, Sinan-gun, Jeollanam-do. This species is similar to A. trichomonas, A. tripteropus, A. boreale, A. normale and A. oligophlebium by having gemmae and auricle of pinna, and distinguished from the latters by distinct stipe length, stalk of pinna, acute apex of pinna, length of indusium and shape of sorus. The Local name, Ga-geo-kko-ri-go-sa-ri, was newly given considering the locality. To reveal the interspecific relationships within the genus Asplenium in Korea, cladistic analysis was performed for 22 taxa of Asplenium as ingroup and 2 taxa of Diplazium as outgroup from Korea based on 20 morphological characters. As the results, the genus Asplenium seperated strongly from outgroup, and divided into 4 clades. Asplenium yoshinagae belong to the third clade. A. hondoense N. Murtakami & S. I. Hatanaka, which contained in the second clade, had treated as Hymenasplenium, but this results supported that this taxon may be contained in Asplenium, and also, Asplenium ruprechtii, not in Comptosorus. The morphological characters and illustrations of the species are provided together with photographs of habitat.

The morphological variation was analysed to examine previous hypotheses on the taxonomy of B. amurensis complex which includes B. amurensis Rupr. var. amurensis, B. amurensis var. quelpaertensis (Nakai) Nakai and B. amurensis var. latifolia Nakai. The results from the univariational and principal components analyses employing 22 putatively diagnostic characters indicate that B. amurensis var. quelpaertensis is distinct from var. amurensis in the length and width of leaves, angle of leaf apex, distance between spinose teeth, length of internode, number of flowers per inflorescence, whereas B. amurensis var. latifolia is different from other varieties in the angle of leaf apex and leaf length/width ratio. In principal component analysis, the characters of the leaf including leaf width and length were the main characteristics to distinguish those three taxa. The evidence both from the principal components analyses and current geographical distribution pattern suggest that retaining the varietal status for the two taxa, B. amurensis var. latifolia and B. amurensis var. quelpaertensis is reasonable.

Taxonomic identities of Utricularia japonica and U. tenuicaulis were examined. Utricularia japonica was differed from U. tenuicaulis by having a scape narrower than the stem, rather sparsely arranged leaves, and more or less oblong leaves. Utricularia japonica has been known to occur widely in Korea due to the misidentification of U. tenuicaulis, which is distributed widely in southern and middle Korea. However, only one population of U. japonica was found in Chunjin Lake, near Kosung-gun, Kwangwon-Do, in Korea.
A Taxonomic Study of Asarum (Aristolochiaceae) in Korea

Taxonomic treatment and the identification key for 6 species and 4 varieties from the genus Asarum (Aristolochiaceae) in Korea were presented on the basis of the morphological analyses. Recently the taxonomy of the genus Asarum in Korea is controversial in the definition of species and the establishment of variation range. Our morphological studies supported that the species A. patens, A. misandrum and A. versicolor should be recognized as independent species by the unique morphological characters such as calyx lobes, stylar protuberance and leaf variegation. Second, A. sieboldii var. cornutum, A. koreanum, A. maculatum and A. sonunsanense, regarded as species or variety by different scholars, showed a close relationship with A. sieboldii by the similar calyx characters. Thus, new combinations, such as A. sieboldii for. cornutum, A. sieboldii for. koreanum, A. sieboldii for. maculatum and A. sieboldii for. sonunsanense, are proposed. And A. heterotropoides var. seoulense and A. heterotropoides var. mandshuricum also had a close relationship, thus, new combinations, A. mandshuricum for. seoulense, A. mandshuricum for. mandshuricum, are proposed. Furthermore, it is appropriate that A. heterotropoides var. heterotropoides, only distributed in Japan, is revised into A. heterotropoides as independent species by the unique character from the 2 varieties above. Consequently, the genus Asarum in Korea is classified into 3 species and 7 forma.
Karyotyping Analysis and Bicolor FISH of Pimpinella hallaisanensis, an Endemic to Jeju Island

Chromosome analysis using karyotyping and bicolor FISH were carried out in Pimpinella hallaisanensis which is one of the endemic plants in Jeju island of Korea. The somatic methaphase chromosomes number of this plant was 2n=2x=22 and the size of this chromosomes ranged from 3.58 to 5.82 ㎛. The chromosome complements consisted of two pairs of metacentrics (chromosomes 1 and 2), four pairs of submetacentrics (chromosomes 3, 4, 6 and 8) and five pairs of subtelocentrics (chromosomes 5, 7, 9, 10 and 11). Using bicolor FISH, three pairs of 5S and four pairs of 45S rDNA loci were observed. Two pairs of 5S rDNA signals were detected on the end of the long arm of chromosome 4 and one pair of them were observed between long arm end and centromere. Another 45S rDNA signals were detected on the end of short arm of chromosome 4, 6, 10 and 11, respectively. Hence, the chromosome number reexamined using both conventional staining and FISH methods was different from previous report.
Pollen morphology of Patrinieae Hock (Valerianaceae)
Jung, Eun-Hee ; Hong, Suk-Pyo ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 38, issue 2, 2008, Pages 163~177
Pollen grains of 17 taxa (14 species with two additional subspecies and one variety) of genera Patrinia Juss. and Nardostachys DC. in tribe Patrinieae (Valerianaceae) were studied using light microscope, scanning electron microscope, and transmission electron microscope. Pollen grains are medium (37.41 × 43.60 ㎛ - 45.65× 48.50 ㎛) to large (54.88 × 59.41 ㎛ - 61.70 × 71.00 ㎛) in size, tricolpate (rarely tetracolpate) with the characteristic halo surrounding the aperture. In equatorial view, the pollen is oblate to subprolate, and in polar view, it is mostly circular or rarely 3-lobed. Two major pollen types are recognized on the basis of exine sculpturing patterns; Type I: Exine is composed of echinae together with sparse or dense microechinae, and verrucae shallow or rarely absent (Nardostachys and sections Paleopatrinia, and Monanadropatrinia of Patirinia). - Type II: Exine is composed of massive echinae together with dense microechinae, and prominent verrucae (section Centrotrinia of Patrinia). In TEM sections, columellae are extended from the footlayer into verrucae, and exine thickness is uniform at the pole and equator. Additionally, the infrageneric classification systems of the Patrinieae were evaluated on the basis of the present data.

Kil, Ji-Hyon ; Lee, Kyu-Song ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 38, issue 2, 2008, Pages 179~185
Unrecorded species from the beach at Gangnung City is reported: Cakile edentula, Brassicaceae. The genus Cakile is unrecorded in Korea and easily distinguished from other genera in Brassicaceae by the upper member of fruits distinctly longer or thicker than the lower part, petiole white or anthocyanic, style absent and leaves glabrous. The local name is Seo-yang-gaet-naeng-i and the morphological characters and illustrations of the species are provided.

Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 38, issue 2, 2008, Pages 187~196
Two naturalized species, Carduus natans L. and Lepidium latifolium L. were newly reported from Korea. Carduus natans, "Sa-hyang-ung-gung-kwi", was found from Nanjido, Seoul, and Yangsuri and Naejangri, Gyunggi-do. It is distinguished from widely naturalized C. crispus by having large nodding heads (30-60mm in diameter) and acuminate lanceolate involucral bracts. Lepidium latifolium, "Keun-ki-da-dag-naeng-i", was found from Noeul Park, Nanjido, Seoul. It is distinguished from the related species by having tall height (about 1 m), subsessile upper leaves, pinnately lobed lower leaves, and corymbose inflorescence.
