Content of Lead and Cadmium in Organs of Rats by the Distance from Highway
Lee, Hai-Poong ; Wan-Ho Chung ;
The Korean Journal of Ecology, volume 10, issue 1, 1987, Pages 1~6
The concentrations of lead and cadmium in each organ of the rats were measured by the different distance from the Kyungbu highway at Yangjae-dong, Seoul and control site, Dongguk university forest at Mt. Unack, Namyanghu-gun, Kyunggi from 1984 to 1986. The lead was concentrated in the bone with the least. The lead concentration in the bone of the rats inhabiting within 10m from the highway was determined more than 5 times of the control site and significantly this was inversely proportional to the distance from the highway. The cadmium, in the other hand, was specifically concentrated in the kidney as compared with other oragns i.e., the decreasing order of the kidney within 10m from the highway was more than 3 times of that of the control, although the concentration in the organs was not significantly related with the distance from the highway.
Content Differences of Pb and Cd by Trophic Levels of the Ecosystem near Highways with Different Traffic Volumes

The content of Pb and Cd in the soil, producer, 1st consumer and 2nd consumer by the distance from two highway with different construction years and traffic volumes was measured from 1984 through 1986. The result was compared with that of a control in Yangsu-ri near Mt. Unak, Namyangju-gun, Kyunggi-do. The producers in the area of Yangjae-done are composed of 27 species of floras with Glycine soja being the dominant species while those in Shingal 20 species, with Leesia japonica being the dominant species. The faunas in the former area include 37 families and 69 species, with insects being dominant. In the area of Yangjae-dong, the biomass by trophic levels increased from the ration of 1/400 between producer and 1st consumer to the ratio of 1/10 between 1st consumer and 2nd consumer. The Pb content of soil, producer, 1st consumer and 2nd consumer in Yangjae-done near the Kyungbu highway with traffic jam has the sigingacant difference of 1% level at the vicinity of 10 meters and it is the same with that of Shingal area nearthe Youngdong highway with relatively sparse traffic except for the 2nd consumer. In case of cadmium content, the 1st and 2nd consumer has 1% signigicant difference near the Kyungbu highway and other trophic levels have no diference. Besides, the content of Pb and Cd at the site 1, 2 and 3 within the range of 100 meters from the two highways has 1% significant difference from that of a control while the site 4 has no difference.

This survey was carried out in four areas in southern Korea from May 1983 through April 1986. A total of 1, 717 house rats was caught by trapping technique throughout the 4 areas. The total of 1, 535 trombiculid mites (4 genera, 7 species) was found only among Rattus norvegicus. Six species were observed in Seoul and Yangsuri areas, and 5 species in Seongnam area. No trombiculid mites were found in the rats caught in Inchon area. The highest infection rate of trombiculid mites (25%) was recorded in the rats caught in Seongnam area. And Leptotrombidium palpale was abundant species in general (detection rate; 72.8%) In seasonal variation, the hightes number of trombiculid population was observed from October through December in all the areas surveyed, and especially Euschongastia koreaensis apperaed more in autumn and winter than in any other season. The values of specie diversity and evenness of trombiculid mites found in Yangsuri were comparatively higher than those from the other areas.
Soil Microarthropods at the Kwang Yang Experiment Plantation -1. Composition of Oribatid Mites (Acari: Cryptostigmata)-
Kwak, Joon Soo ;
The Korean Journal of Ecology, volume 10, issue 1, 1987, Pages 23~31
This study was carried out to investigate by the MGP analysis the composition of oribatid mite in coniferous and broad-leaved forests, Kwang Yng experiment plantation, Chola Nam Do Province, southern part of Korea. In these study area, 157 species of oribatid mites (Acari: Cryptogimata) were identified. Among them 6 species such as; Brachychochthonius jugatus JACOT, B hungaricus BALOGH, Eremulus translamealtus BALOGH et. MAHUNKA, Brachioppiella ctenifera GOLOSOVA, Striatoppia opuntiseta BALOGH et. MAHUNKA, Suctobelba perdentata baculifer BALOGH et. MAHUNKA have not been described in Korea. Species compositions were as follows; Among them 69 species were found in all the six sampling sites, 33 species scattered sporadically in all the area, 12 species found in coniferous forest, 10 species in broad-leaved forest only, and 33 species sampled at one site. According to the MGP analysis I, site B-1, B-2, and B-3 were found to be "Type G" and site C-1, C-2, and C-3 were "Type MG". According to the MGP analysis II, site B were found to be all "Type G". But site C-1 was "Type MG", C-2 was "Type M" and C-3 was "Type G" suggesting that "Group M" increased in the site C.e G" suggesting that "Group M" increased in the site C. in the site C.
Vegetation of Mt. Chil-gab
Koh, Jae Kee ; Yang-Jai Yim ;
The Korean Journal of Ecology, volume 10, issue 1, 1987, Pages 33~42
The forest vegetation of Mt. Chil-gab was studied from 1983 to 1984. By Z-M method, the actual vegetation was classified into 8 communities and 1 plantation; Quercus variabilis, Q. variabilis-Styrax obassia, Q variabilis-Q. dentata, Q. varisbilid-Q. mongolica, Q. acutissima-Q. variabilis, Zelkova serrata-Styrax japonica, Capinus laxiflora, Pinus densiflora community and Larix leptolepts plantation (on the mountain foot) community. The plant communities of Q. variabilis and S. japonica as edaphic climax, in terms of the isopleth line of warmth index. Based on the data of vegetation survey and environmental analysis, the actual vegetation map and potential natural vegetation map were perpared with scale of 1/25, 000.
On the Secondary Forest of Jongyeoul Hill, Seoul
Yim, Yang-Jai ; Woon-Young Baik ;
The Korean Journal of Ecology, volume 10, issue 1, 1987, Pages 43~51
The forest vegetation of Jongyeoul hill, Seoul, was classified into six secondary forests and two plantations by ZM method; Pinus densiflora, Quercus acutissima, Pinus rigida, Robinia pseudoacacia and Alnus hirsuta-Quercus mongolica community, and Castanea crenata and Pinus koraiensis plantation. In the herb layer the species richness and total coverage of deciduous broad leaf forests showed higher values than those of evergreen needle leaf forests. The peak in July at Q. acutissima forest and in the middle of June at R. pseudoacacia forest. Simpson's diversity index(Ds) in different stands are as follows: Ds>0.6 in R. pseudoacacia forest, Ds=0.3~0.6 in Q. acutissima forest and Ds<0.3 in P. densiflora and P. rigida forest. It is found that, although dominance rank and importance value were originated from different school each other, two measures can be used exchangablym showing almost linear positive correlation between them in this study.
