Abstract

In this paper, the altitudinal vegetation zonality of two Central Korean mountain ranges, Myohyangsan and Kumgangsan, is analyzed. The vegetation belts of these two ranges and their community patterns can be seen in Tables 1 and 3. Although the colline-sub montane vegetation belt is very similar in both ranges, its altitudinal span is quite different. In the montane to subalpine vegetation belts, marked differences in the floristic composition and altitudinal spans of corresponding vegetation belts can be found. They may be explained by chorological isolation and differences in the geomorphological (partly geological) and macroclimatic conditions of the both ranges.
