Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 40, issue 3, 2010, Pages 135~144
This study intended to investigate environmental factors including soil and vegetation in order to understand the environmental and ecological characteristics of four different habitats of Abelia tyaihyoni. These habitats, according to investigations, are mostly located at elevations of 203 m to 297 m with angles of inclination ranging from 9 degrees to 17 degrees. The litter depth of habitats is 2 cm to 5 cm. A total of 113 vascular plant taxa are identified in seven quadrates of the four habitats. The life form of 113 species is H-
-e type. The importance value of Abelia tyaihyoni is 39.61%, and 4 highly ranked species such as Quercus dentata (6.27%), Spiraea blumei, Spiraea prunifolia for. simpliciflora (4.04%) and Ulmus davidiana var. japonica (3.84%) are considered to be an affinity with Abelia tyaihyoni in their habitats. The dominant species of woody plants in the four habitats are represented as Pinus densiflora (21.22%) and Quercus dentata (16.82%) in the subtree layer (T2), and Carex humilis var. nana (18.95%) and Carex lanceolata (17.63%) in the herbaceous layer (H). The degree of their average species diversity is 1.42, and that of dominance and evenness are 0.07 and 0.86, respectively. The type of soil is sandy loam, clay loam and loam, and the average field capacity of soil is 22.49%. Their average organic matter is 9.39%, soil pH 6.75, and available phosphorus is 1.23
A taxonomic study of the external morphology of the Korean Oldenlandia L. (Rubiaceae)
Nam, Bo-Mi ; Jang, Yong-Seok ; Park, Myung-Soon ; Eom, Jeong-Ae ; Chung, Gyu-Young ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 40, issue 3, 2010, Pages 145~152
The external morphological characters of the Korean Oldenlandia were reviewed, and numerical analysis of 25 quantitative characters carried out to evaluate the delimitation of the taxa. Among the qualitative characters, the leaf shape, inflorescence, pilose of insde corolla, expansion of capsule apex, and seed shape were used to delimit 5 species of Korean Oldenlandia. As the result of principal component analysis of quantitative characters, O. corymbosa, O. hirsuta and O. strigulosa were evidently separated on a two-dimensional plot by PC1 and PC2, and O. brachypoda and O. diffusa slightly overlapped. However, O. brachypoda was distinctly delimited from O. diffusa by the shape of calyx lobe, the lengths of pedicel, filament and stigma. Also each of those two species was in a group of its own by cluster analysis.

Lee, Dong-Hyuk ; Chung, Gyu-Young ; Choi, Byoung-Hee ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 40, issue 3, 2010, Pages 153~156
The somatic chromosome number of four Korean species of Leontopodium were investigated. The chromosome number of L. leiolepis (2n = 24) is reported here as for the first time. The chromosome number of L. japonicum (2n = 28) is not varied among the 3 populations on the Korean Peninsula, but that condition is different from the previous reports for Korea (2n = 26) and Japan (2n = 21, 26). L. hallaisanense and L. japonicum, both of which are in sect. Nobilia and similar to each other in gross morphology, have the same chromosome number of 2n = 28. On the other hand the chromosome number of Korean L. leontopodioides (2n = 24) is different from that in Russian reports (2n = 26). The chromosome numbers of all Korean species of the genus Leontopodium could be inferred as tetraploid or aneuploid.
Intraspecific sequence variation of trnL/F intergenic region (cpDNA) in Sedum takesimense Nakai (Crassulaceae) and aspects of geographic distribution
Lee, Woong ; Pak, Jae-Hong ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 40, issue 3, 2010, Pages 157~162
Sequences of the trnL/F intergenic spacer of chloroplast DNA were used to investigate the intraspecific evoution and phylogeography of Sedum takesimense (Crassulaceae). The trnL/F intergeneric spacer sequences from 32 individuals of S. takesimense were either 291 bp (17 samples "nwithout indel" in the following) or 297 bp (15samples "with indel 1") in length due to an indel of 6 bp. Two main cpDNA haplotypes were detected within S. takesimense. The haplotype with indel was found on Ulleung Island and without indel on Ulleung Island and Dok Island. This confirmed the existence of two cpDNA lineages with different geographical distributions. The cpDNA sequence analysis also suggested a putative long-distance dispersal event between Ulleung Island and Dok Island.
The first report Prunella pinnatifida Benth. (Labiatae) in Korea
Kim, Sang-Tae ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 40, issue 3, 2010, Pages 163~168
Prunella vulgaris var. lilacina Nakai, P. vulgaris var. aleutica Fernald, and P. vulgaris var. albiflora Nakai have been reported as infrageneric taxa of Prunella L. in Korea. I found many samples of P. pinnatifida Pers. in the previously collected herbarium sheets in several major herbaria in Korea and confirmed its distribution again in Jaeun Island, Chonnam Province with the information from those herbarium sheets. P. pinnatifida Pers. has deeply lobed leaves in contrast to entire or barely dentate leaves of P. vulgaris var. lilacina Nakai, P. vulgaris var. aleutica Fernald, and P. vulgaris var. albiflora Nakai. I first report the distribution of this taxon in Korea and give it the Korean name Gal-re-kkul-pul. I provide description, illustrations, and an infrageneric key to identification of the other taxa of Prunella in Korea, and discuss some taxonomic problems of this taxon.
A new record for the Korean flora: Sparganium fallax Graebn.(Sparganiaceae)
Kim, Chan-Soo ; Kim, Soo-Young ; Moon, Myung-Ok ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 40, issue 3, 2010, Pages 169~173
Sparganium fallax Graebn. (Sparganiaceae), a species previously unrecorded for the Korean flora, was collected in a broad-leaved, evergreen swamp in the lowlands of eastern Jeju Island. This species was known to be distributed south of Jeju Island including Japan, South China, Taiwan, India, Indonesia (Sumatra), Myanmar, and New Guinea. S. fallax differ from others of Sparganiaceae in Korea by having keeled leaves, 4-7 staminate heads, relatively wide separation between each pistillate head and usually sessile or lowest pedunculated pistillate heads. The somatic chromosome number was 2n = 2x = 30 and the size of chromosomes was very small (0.69 to 2.19
First record of Sorbaria kirilowii (Rosaceae-Spiraeoideae) from Korea
Song, Jun-Ho ; Chang, Chin-Sung ; Hong, Suk-Pyo ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 40, issue 3, 2010, Pages 174~178
We report an unrecorded species of the genus Sorbaria (Rosaceae) in Korea, namely Sorbaria kirilowii (Regel & Tiling) Maxim. This plant was discovered both on Pocheon-si, Naecheon-myeon and Yeoju-gun, Buknae-myeon in Gyeonggi Province. It is distinguishable from Sorbaria sorbifolia (L.) A. Braun var. stellipila Maxim. by characteristics such as presence of hair on leaf and rachis, morphology of inflorescence, length and width of petal, shape of sepal, number and length of stamens, presence of hair upon and size of follicles. This taxon was given the Korean common name 'om-swi-ttang-na-mu'based on the small size of floral characters.
The First Record of Scleria caricina (R. Br.) Benth. (Cyperaceae) in Korea
Jang, Chang-Seok ; Lee, You-Mi ; Park, Su-Hyun ; Kim, Jong-Hwan ; Cho, Yang-Hoon ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 40, issue 3, 2010, Pages 179~182
We report S. caricina (R. Br) Benth. (Cyperaceae) as an unrecorded species from Sinan-gun, Jeollanam Province on the Korean peninsula. This taxon was known to be distributed mainly in southeast Asia, China, Japan, and the northern part of Australia. S. caricina is distinguished from other species of the genus Scleria in Korea by having congested inflorescences, 3-toothed pistillate scales at the apex, and enclosed achenes in 2 scales. The new Korean common name, 'Ae-gi-gae-ol-mi', is given considering the small-size of the plants. A description based on the morphological characters and the illustrations of this species are provided with a taxonomic key to the species of Scleria in Korea.
First record of Calanthe (C. x kibanakirishima F. Maek., Orchidaceae) in Korea
Hong, Hang-Hwa ; Kim, Jong-Sun ; Jang, Gil-Hun ; Im, Hyoung-Tak ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 40, issue 3, 2010, Pages 183~185
We report a unrecorded species, Da-do-sae-u-nan-cho (Calanthe
kibanakirishima F. Maek). It was discovered on Heuksan Island in Jeollanam Province. The species differs from C. aristulifera in the corolla color and the short, wide spur. It is also easily distinguished from the other species of Calanthe by the simple trichomes on the abaxial surface of its leaves and spur.
Four unrecorded moss species from the Korean flora
Yoon, Young-Jun ; Sun, Byung-Yun ;
Korean Journal of Plant Taxonomy, volume 40, issue 3, 2010, Pages 186~191
Four unrecorded species (Barbella flagellifera, Isothecium hakkodense, Mnium orientale and Fissidens gardneri) and with one unrecorded genus, Barbella, are reported new to the Korean moss flora. B. flagellifera (Meteoriaceae) was found on a tree at alt. 300-350 m of parasitic Seogeomun-oreum Volcano on Jeju Island. The species are mainly distributed in subtropic regions. I. hakkodense (Lembophyllaceae) was found around the top of Seongin-bong on Ulleung Island. This species is similar to I. subdiversiforme, however, it can be distinguished by the morphologies of branch leaves and alar cells. M. orientale (Mniaceae) was collected from Mt. Jiri. This is similar to M. heterophyllum, however, it can be distinguished by plant size, number of teeth in leaf margin and cell size on leaf. F. gardneri (Fissidentaceae) was found along the valley of Mt. Palyeong, Jeollanam Province. This species is similar to F. obscurirete, but distinguished by the size of the plants and their leaves as well as the costal lengths of the leaves.
