  • The Korean government has been trying to conserve a marine ecosystem that has been shifting due to climate change. As part of this effort, the government designated seventy-seven marine species that have been disappearing and deserve to be protected as endangered managing them specially. To generate basic data to guide policy for these endangered species, their value must be measured. OOf the species declared endangered, coral is particularly threatened by climate change, and its management is important. Accordingly, understanding the potential value of reefs, can be an effective way of proving the benefits of continuous management to decision makers and the general public alike. To this end, we have applied the contingent valuation method (CVM), an economic technique of for valuing a environmental and non-market goods such as a coral reef. A national face-to-face survey of 1,000 randomly selected households was conducted in order to determine the public's willingness to pay (WTP) for conserving coral reefs. A one-and-one-half-bound (OOHB) model was adopted to interpret WTP responses, and a spike model was employed to deal with zero WTP responses. The results show that the conservation value of a coral reef can be estimated at 3,016 won per household per year, statistically significant at the 1 % level. Expanding values to the national population gives an annual value of 58.9 billion won. We can conclude that the public is willing to pay a significant amount to conserve coral reefs.

  • 한국산 산호충류의 계통분류학적 연구의 일환으로 1970년부터 1985년까지 한국 황해 연안에있는 군락지와 흑산도에서 채집된 실꽃말미잘( Cerianthus filiformis)을 동정한 결과 한국미기록종으로 밝혀졌다. 1985년 4월에 채집된 개체는 몸속에 플라눌라 유생을 지니고 있었으며, 이들은 다양한 자포를 약간 갖고 있었고, 몸밖으로 나온 플라눌라 유생에서는 보다 분화된 자포를 갖고 있었다. 특히 성체에서는 체벽에 있는 자포 중 ptychocyst가 처고형성에 지주 역할을 함을 볼 수 있었다.
