- The mountain Hyang-ro studied by members of theArboretum between April and September 1998 is located on the northern margin of south Korea, along the east side of DMZ. A forest area in Hyang-ro is a birch-oak forest in which the dominant trees of the arboreal layer are Quercus mongolica, Acer tschonoskiivar. rubripes, Betula ermanii, B. costata, B. schmidtii, Tilia amurensis and Pinus densiflora. Because of the restriction of collections within this military zone, 241 taxa (64 families and 155 genera) recorded here are only a part of reperesentatives in this community. It is recognized fact that the tendency toward dominant by several subalpine taxa increases as a part of regional flora from above 1,000 m altitude. The emphasis has been upon its woody constitutents with respect to community, but the endangered herbaceous taxa are rich in this area according to the classification of rare and endangered species proposed by the Ministry of Environment.
