waterfall_small.jpg (22838 bytes)Korea is divided into two districts; highland and lowland.  In the highlands are the Myohyangsan and T'aebaeksan mountains, and are home to deer, roe deer, Amur goral, sable, brown bear, tiger, lynx , northern pika, water shrew, muskrat, Manchurian ring-necked pheasant, black grouse, hawk owl, pine grosbeak and the three-toed woodpecker.  The lowlands (peninsula) have a mild climate which is the habitat of black bear, river deer, mandarin vole, white-bellied black (or Tristram's) woodpecker, faiy pitta and ring-necked peasant.

Chejudo island, located south of the Korean peninsula, has seventeen species of terrestrial mammals; but the wild bear, deer, and wild cats are now extinct.  Animal inhabitants of Chejudo are roe deer, weasel, hamster, field mouse, house rat, and two bat species. 

Due to the Korean Peninsula's long north-south stretch and topographic complexity, there are wide variations in temperature and rainfall. The mean temperature throughout the four seasons ranges from 5oC to 16oC and rainfall from 500 to 1,500 millimeters. Such an environment makes the land a diversified floral region. Lee Woo-tchul's Lineaments Florae Korea (1997) listed 190 families, 1,079 genera, 3,129 species, 8 subspecies, 627 varieties, 1 subvariety and 306 forms of higher plants, including pteridophytes. This means that more than 4,000 kinds of vascular plants, including about 570 endemics are currently growing in the country.
