Perforation plate was observed in 78 species(45 genera, 25 families) of Korean native hardwoods using SEM and it was divided into three types, i.e., simple, scalariform and multiple perforation plates, Based on occurance of these types, the species examined were classfied into the following six groups : (1) 60species(35 genera, 21 families) having exclusively simple perforation, (2) 5 species(2 genera, 1 families) having exclusively scalariform perforation plates, (3) 4 species(4 genera, 3 families) having simple and scalariform perforation plates, (4) 2 species(2 genera, 1 families) having simple and multiple perforation plates, (5) 5 species(3 genera, 3 families) having scalariform and multiple perforation plates and (6) 2 species(2 genera, 2 families) having simple, scalariform and multiple perforation plates. Mismatching perforation plates were found in two species of Betulaceae, Alnus hirsuta var. sibirica and Alnus hirsuta and peculiar substructure between the bars of the scalariform perforation plate was observed in Betulaceae, Betula davurica and Cercidiphyllaceae, Cerdiphyllum japonicum and the vestured perforation plate was found in Quercus aliena.
