About this book

Language: English with Korean and scientific nomenclature

Please note that we have spoken to the publisher in April 2017 who explained that national regulations prohibit them from selling the book. However, the National Institute of Biological Resources, Korea, makes these books available for free for museums and librarians, and we advise these customers to approach the institute directly.

The Flora of Korea will comprise a series of ten volumes, to be published over the next several years. The published Flora will include the accepted scientific name and synonyms, citations of relevant literature, the Korean name, identification keys, descriptions, phenological information, summaries of geographical ranges and habitats, and comments on taxonomic problems.

The first volume of the Flora comprises pteridophytes and gymnosperms. It contains treatments of 40 families, 93 genera, 312 species, and 17 infraspecific taxa. The taxa treated include indigenous species, non-native taxa that are well established, and cultivated plants frequently found outside of cultivation. The arrangement of the families of ferns follows that in Maarten et al. (2011), with some modifications. For gymnosperms, the Engler system in Syllabus der Pflanzenfamilien (ed. 12) by Melchior and Werdermann (1954) is adopted. The treatments are based on the results of recent field and laboratory studies in Korea, reviews of the literature on the plants of eastern Asia, and on the examination of specimens in major herbaria around the world.
