Tiny Many 尺樹寸泓





"尺樹寸泓" is a Chinese idiom that refers to a small place with beautiful scenic landscapes, which nurtures different kinds of flowers and trees. I think it can somehow symbolises Hong Kong. Despite of the small scale in size, it has a diversity of flora. According to George Bentham, the author of “Flora Hongkongensis”, the little island of Hong Kong is situated on the southern coast of China; on the other side, it connects the western islands of the Indian Archipelago, which nurtures a large total amount of species. As a result, Hong Kong’ s rich biodiversity should be treasured, as it defines the uniqueness of our region.

The objective of this capstone project is to explore and investigate the native plants in Hong Kong. The target audience of this project is the general public, mainly young adults aged between 18-28. This project aims to provide an opportunity for the general public to revalue and appreciate the local nature environment.

「尺樹寸泓」是指一個小的地方,有著美麗的風景,不同種類的花卉和樹木;它象徵香港,面積雖很小,但植物種類繁多。《香港植物誌》的作者喬治·邊沁指出,香港的小島位於中國南部海岸,連接著印度群島的西部島嶼,所以它培育了大量的植物物種。故此,應該珍惜香港的生物多樣性,因為它定義了我們地區的獨特性。

此專題研究的是香港的原生植物。研究對象以普羅大眾為主,特別集中於年齡介乎18-28歲的大眾。本研究目的旨在讓大眾重新認識和欣賞本土自然環境。
