Floristic Composition and Vertical Distribution of Mt. Daesun
Cho, Joong Bae ; Bong-Seop Kil ;
The Korean Journal of Ecology, volume 10, issue 2, 1987, Pages 53~62
Floristic composition and vertical distribution of Mt. Daedun (western slope) were investigated from 1985 to 1986. The results are as follows; 108 families, 346 genera, 511 species, 2 subspecies, 75 varieties, 5 forma or 593 taxa including 77 cultivars. The floral data showed the ecological characteristics such as the value 346 in Fisher's Index, H-D1-H5 in biological type, 10.9% in urban index of naturalized plants and 60.5% in erect form growth form. Based on the physiognomy and population density of dominant tree species the forest vegetation of Mt. Daedun (western slope) was classified into 5 types; Quercus mongolica forest and Q. variabilis forest at 800m above, Carpinys laxiflora forest and Acer mono forest at 700m to 800m and Sapium japonicum forest at 500m to 800m in altitude. And Lindera erythrocarpa forest and zelkova serrata forest are widely distributed at 400m to 800m in altityde along valley and at mountain foot area.

Detrended correspondence analysis(DCA) and two way indicator species analysis(TWINSPAN) were applied to Pinus densiflora stands nearby Seoul area in order to classify them into several groups based on herbaceous species and environmental relationships. The eighteen Pinus densiflora stands were perferenially selected, In each stand, 30 to 60 quadrats, (20X20)cm, were randomly estabilished. In each quadrat, all stems for herbaceous plants were recorded by species and their covers were measured. In addition environmental factors such as soil depth, thickness of litter layer, soil compressibility, tree density, basal area, elevation, slope and exposure were detemined for each stand. Four to twelve soil cores were collected and physical and KDICical properties were determined. This survey was conducted form 15, July, 1985 to 22, September, 1985. Analysis of the vegetation and environmental data were performed with DECORANA and TWINSPAN. Stand ordination (DECORANA) and classification (TWINSPAN) based on herbaceous species suggest that the stands can be classified into five groups in terms of herbaceous species composition and environmental relationships. Type I, Type II, Type III, Type IV and Type V were classified to SUBMESIC-CLO-SED-CANOPY (Artemisia keiskeana, Carex nanella), MESIC-CLOSED CANOPY (Spodiopogon sibiricus, Miscanthus sinensis, Carex nanella, Pteridum aquilinum, Melampyrum rosium), SUBMESIC-OPEN CANOPY (Carex nanella, Spodiopogon sibiricus, Miscanthus sinensis), XERIC-CLOSED CANOPY (Carex nanella, Spodiopogon sibiricus, Carex nanella), and XERIC-OPEN CANOPY (Arundinella hirts, Spodiopogon sibiricus, Carex nanella), respectively. These results were consitent with environmental trends on stan ordination. Application of the ordination and classifiaction to Pinus densiflora stands were effective as a approach on obtaining perliminary ecological information.

This study was carried out to inverstigate the oribatid fauna at Mt. Moak near Chonju, Korea. Samples were taken from 4 sites at the north sides, 200, 300, 500 and 600 above sea levels and south sides, 200, 400, 600, and 700m above sea levels. The results were as follows: Oribatid mites of 37 families, 62 genera, 118 species were collected in this study. Numbers of species were less at high level than at low level sites. Species diversity index was less at high level than at low level sites, and less at the south than at the north side. Species similarity index indicated that there are two types, i.e. "high sea level type", and "low sea level type" at Mt. Moak. According to the MGP analysis-I, most of the sites belonged to "Type G". "Group M" and "Group P" appeared more in the lower level sites.up P" appeared more in the lower level sites.ites.
A Study on the Presentation of Idea in Information and Entropy Theory in Vegetation Data
Park, Seung Tai ;
The Korean Journal of Ecology, volume 10, issue 2, 1987, Pages 91~107
This study is concerned with some methods and applications, used as a basis on information and entropy analysis of vegetation data. These methods are adopted for the evaluating the effect of sampling intensity on information, which repersnets the departure of observed variable from standard component. Classes on the data matrix are caluculated by using marginal dispersion array for rank and weighting information program. Finally the information and entropy are computed by applying seven options. On the application of vegetation studies, two models for cluster analysis and analysis of concentration are explained in detail. Cluster analysis is based on use of equivocation information and Rajski's metrics. The analysis of concentration utilizes coherence coefficience being transformed values, which has been adjusted from blocks and entropy values. The relationship btween three begetation clusters and four stands of Naejangsan data is highly significant in 79% of total variance. Cluster A relatively tends to prefer north side, and cluster C south side.
