Our Korean translator in Korean translation Glasgow branch, Mr. Park wrote us an article about Korea’s plant and animals.
The Korean Peninsula has been settled, farmed, and moved across for thousands of years. Even though the landscape is only about one-fifth arable (land that can be farmed), the hallmarks of active settlement are clearly apparent in almost all prospects. The inventory of flora and fauna has been widely modified by the peninsula’s corridor role in the ever-shifting interaction between the Asian continent and the Japanese archipelago (chain of islands). According Mr. Park, our professional Korean translator, there used to be a fauna of bears, lynx, tigers, and leopards, these particular animals have become very rare. Deer and wild boar remain, but they have a steady struggle in staying free of the influence of expanding settlements.
As all of us here in Korean translation Glasgow team know well, South Korea is approximately 20 percent farmland with most of that located on the river plains and the lower elevation gradients of the Southern and Southwestern Plains that slope toward the Sea of Japan. The forest cover is a mix of coniferous trees and broadleaf subtropical forests. Because the peninsula of Korea extends across nine degrees of latitude (about 625 miles, or 1,006 kilometers) from Cheju Island in the south to the Yalu River in the north, there is considerable variation in the flora from north to south.
The landscape of Cheju Island in the Sea of Japan is the richest in variety. The most common trees include pine, maple, oak, larch, spruce, elm, willow, alder, birch, poplar, and bamboo. We could have written those names in Romanised forms, but it will make your head spin. Instead we used out Korean translation expertise. In addition, the country has an active orchard industry on the flatlands and mountain flanks, with the most important tree crops being apple, pear, peach, orange, tangerine, fig, and in the far south, the Chinese quince. These crops have been significant both to the domestic economy and for export trade to the lucrative Japanese market.
Fauna, as noted above, have diminished in number because of steadily expanding zones of human occupation of the Korean landscape, our Korean translator tell us. However, more than 350 species of birds have been recorded in South Korea. The heron, a spindly legged tall bird with a long narrow beak has been a focus in Korean poetry and paintings. Our Korean translator believes that it continues to be a landmark found on the southeast coast of the country. This bird is so important to the idealized images of South Korea that the government has established eight heronries for the breeding and protection of this elegant white bird.
The large mammals that remain a part of the Korean fauna in the south include the tiger, leopard, lynx—in small numbers—and the cat, wolf, badger, bear, marten, and roe deer. In everyday life, these animals are not easily found, but in a country that has a level of living that is improving and supporting ever more tourism, the maintenance of the environments that sustain all of these animals and birds becomes economically as well as environmentally more important every year.
