Flora of Korea

Please note that we have spoken to the publisher in April 2017 who explained that national regulations prohibit them from selling these books. 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.

Korean botanists have long been aware of the need for a new, comprehensive, vascular flora of Korea, particularly one written in English and based on extensive fieldwork and critical revision of major groups. In 2000, a long-term project to produce such an English language flora was initiated by 53 Korean botanists representing virtually the entire community of plant taxonomists in Korea. An editorial committee of 16 members was established, Editorial Guidelines for the Flora of Korea were prepared and the Flora of Korea Coordinating Center was established in the Herbarium of the School of Biological Sciences (SNU), Seoul National University.

The 21st Century Frontier R & D Program of the Ministry of Science and Technology provided an initial three-year (2000-2003) grant for the project. For the following seven years (2004-2010), the Eco-Technopia-21 project of the Ministry of Environment provided funding to compile the Flora.

The Genera of Vascular Plants of Korea, which is essentially an introduction to the Flora of Korea, was published in July, 2007. The aim of the Genera was to provide a synopsis of the vascular plants occurring on the Korean peninsula and a framework upon which the volumes of the Flora will be based.

The Flora of Korea comprises a series of ten volumes, and 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.
