The description includes Latin name, morphology, ecology, distribution, distribution map, founded coenology, altitudinal range and distribution in mountain ranges, pen and ink drawings. The woody flora of North Korea is too species-rich to be presented in its entirety, but the book does present a good selection of trees and shrubs. Contents: Introduction.
