Taxonomic Examination of Iso
tes L. (Iso
taceae) in South Korea

tes L. (Iso
taceae) is difficult to identify among the infrageneric taxa because of morphological simplicity. Since two species (I. japonica and I. coreana) had been reported, I. jejuensis and I. hallasanensis were described as two new species from Jeju Island, South Korea. The habitats of all species were confirmed by current studies except for I. japonica. We compared the morphological and anatomical characters of seven species, three domestic species and four species in adjacent regions (I. taiwanensis, I. sinensis, I. japonica, and I. asiatica). I. asiatica differs from other species in the lobe number of corm, spreading sporophylls, lack of stomata and degree of velum development. All of the seven species were identified by the characteristics of their mega- and microspores. Especially, it was possible to identify the four species in South Korea by the types of ornamentation on their megaspores. Each species has a specific type of megaspore ornamentation: I. coreana - cristate, I. jejuensis - rugulate, I. hallasanensis - echinate, and I. japonica - reticulate. We also discussed the phylogeny of the genus in East Asia in relation to recent studies based on the second intron of LEAFY sequence and amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) analysis. We suggest strategies for the conservation of the endangered Iso
tes species in South Korea.
Morphological characteristics of leaves and trichomes in reciprocal hybrids of Quercus dentata and Q. serrata
Lee, Jeong-Ho ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 39, issue 2, 2009, Pages 74~79
The morphological characteristics of leaves, trichomes, and acorns in 8- to 11-year-old reciprocal hybrids of Quercus dentata and Q. serrata were investigated. The reciprocal hybrids had obovate to obovateelliptic leaves that were smaller than those of Q. dentata but similar to Q. serrata in their leaf size, obtuse leaf apex, narrow-tipped leaf base, and shape of small to intermediate-sized serrations. The ray length of stellate hairs was intermediate between those of the parents, and the hairs showed dense growth. Long single hairs are present among the stellate hairs on the abaxial side of the leaves. Therefore, the hybrids of Q. dentata and Q. serrata could be identified by the size and shape of leaves, shape of serrations, and type of leaf trichomes.
Taxonomic study of Broussonetia (Moraceae) in Korea
Yun, Kyeong-Won ; Kim, Mu-Yeol ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 39, issue 2, 2009, Pages 80~85
Three Korean Broussonetia species (Moraceae) were reexamined based on morphological characters. The plants which has been used for making traditional paper Hanji in Korea are considered hybrid species between B. kazinoki and B. papyrifera, its natural habitat was firstly discovered in Is. Gageo (Jeonnam Province). Thus it is newly described as B.
hanjiana M. Kim. Its Korean name is changed into Daknamu instead of Kkujidaknamu. Therefore, Korean name for B. kazinoki is also changed into Aegidaknamu instead of Daknamu. Dioecious plants of Broussonetia kazinoki which were found in Is. Gageo are named as B. kazinoki for. koreana M. Kim (Gageo-Aegidaknamu).
Eranthis pungdoensis B.U. Oh: A new species of Eranthis (Ranunculaceae) from Korea
Oh, Byoung-Un ; JI, Seong-Jin ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 39, issue 2, 2009, Pages 86~88
A new species of Eranthis (Ranunculaceae), E. pungdoensis B.U. Oh is described from Pung-do, Ansan-si, Gyeonggi-do in Korea. The new species is distinct from E. byunsanensis, its closely relative species, in having broad funnelform petals, 2.5-3.7 mm long, 2.4-3.5 mm wide and restricted distributional area.
Systematics of Korean Thalictrum L. based on a morphological cladistic analysis
Park, Seong-Jun ; Park, Seon-Joo ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 39, issue 2, 2009, Pages 89~99
We used Maximum parsimony and Neighbor-joining to investigate phylogenetic relationship of the genus Thalictrum in Korea with 39 morphological characters. The plant materials were used for ingroup 21 taxa and outgroup 1 taxon including a Korean endemic plant. This study confirmed that Sect. Thalictrum and Sect. Camptonotum formed monophyletic group by 100% and 83% bootstrap values respectively, and Sect. Camptonotum appeared to be Sect. Thalictrum's sister group. Sect. Erythrandra and Sect. Physocarpum formed paraphyletic groups. Sect. Physocarpum except T. osmorhizoides appeared to be polytomy. Sect. Tripterium and Sect. Omalophysa formed an independent clade. The shape of stamen is the important character representing the phylogenetic pattern of the genus Thalictrum the bat and filiform types might be derived from clavate type. The pollination patterns (entomophily, anemophily), and presence of calyx at flowering time may also be related to the evolution of the Thalictrum flowers.
Taxonomic reviews on three taxa of Korean Euphorbia L.
Ji, Seong-Jin ; Oh, Byoung-Un ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 39, issue 2, 2009, Pages 100~106
The morphological characters and scientific names on 3 taxa of Korean Euphorbia were reviewed. Growing pattern of stems, arrangement of leaves, the presence of appendages, the presence of ovary's hairs, shape of seeds and the presence of caruncles were valuable characters in identifying the taxa. The correct scientifie names of Nang-dok, Keun-ttang-bin-dae and Ae-gi-ttang-bin-dae were E. fischeriana, E. hypericifolia and E. maculata respectively based on the morphological characters, the type specimens and the original descriptions. Keys to the species were provided for the accurate identification.
Two unrecorded species of Najas L. (Hydrocharitaceae) from Korean flora: N. orientalis and N. oguraensis
Na, Hye-Ryun ; Choi, Hong-Keun ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 39, issue 2, 2009, Pages 107~113
We report Najas orientalis Triest & P. Uotila and N. oguraensis Miki as unrecorded species from the Korean flora. N. orientalis is distinct from other Najas species in having rounded leaf sheaths and raised testa in the cell walls, and in that this species occurs in the southern region of Korea (Gimhae, Gangjin). N. oguraensis is close to N. minor, but is distinct from this species by having larger male flowers and 4-celled anthers. This species is distributed in the southern region of Korea (Changwon, Jangheung). We also give a new Korean common name for N. gracillima (A. Braun ex Engelm.) Magnus, which is widely distributed in South Korea. A taxonomic key to the six species of Najas is given.
Two new naturalized species from Korea, Euphorbia dentata Michx. and Securigera varia (L.) Lassen
Lee, You-Mi ; Park, Su-Hyun ; Jung, Su-Young ; Yun, Seok-Min ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 39, issue 2, 2009, Pages 114~119
Two naturalized species, Euphorbia dentata Michx. and Securigera varia (L.) Lassen were newly reported from Korea. Euphorbia dentata, "Top-Ni-Dae-Geuk", was found from Jungbu Highway, Daechang-ri, Daechang-myeon, Yeongcheon-si, Gyeongsangbuk-do. It is distinguished from E. pulcherrima by its life form, which is herbaceous, and its upper leaves, which are uniformly green. Securigera varia, "Wang-Gwan-Gal-Kwi-Na-Mul", was found from Hangang, Yeouido, Seoul. The genus Securigera is unrecorded in Korea and distinguished from genus Hedysarum by rose-colored flowers, a peduncle 5-10 cm and by having dense umbels at the tips of the peduncles.
Unrecorded and introduced taxon in Korea: Cymbalaria muralis P. Gaetrn. (Scrophulariaceae)
Kil, Ji-Hyon ; Park, Soo-Hyun ; Kim, Young-Ha ; Lee, Doo-Beom ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 39, issue 2, 2009, Pages 120~123
A naturalized species from Korean flora, Cymbalaria muralis P. Gaetrn. (Scrophulariaceae), is firstly recorded from a well-drained bare field at Bulgwang-dong, Eunpyong-gu, Seoul city. The genus Cymbalaria Hill has not recorded in Korea and C. muralis is easily distinguished from the other species of Scrophulariaceae by palmately-lobed leaves, vine-like stems and cylindrical spur at the base in its flower. The new Korean name is ‘Deong-gul-he-ran-cho'. Descriptions, illustrations and photographs of this species are given.
