Hongshulin Mangrove-view Pavilion
Taiwan

在臺灣,只要一提起紅樹林,一般人馬上就會想到水筆仔這種特殊的胎生植物,但事實上紅樹林是某一類植物的通稱,而水筆仔只是其中的一種。臺灣的紅樹林原本 有6種植物,包括了紅茄苳(Bruguiera conjugata)、細蕊紅樹(Ceriops tagal)、海茄苳(Avicennia marina)、五梨跤(Rhizophora mucronata)、水筆仔(Kandelia candel )及欖李(Lumnitzera racemosa.),但受到土地開發等各種人為干擾的影響,而使紅茄苳和細蕊紅樹相繼的在臺灣滅絕,其他剩下的四種紅樹林植物的分布區域也逐漸狹隘而面 臨威脅。而紅樹林的名稱到底是怎麼來的呢?其中文名稱原來是來自源自一種紅樹科的植物-紅茄苳,因為其樹皮呈紅色,樹皮可以提煉出單寧酸( tennic acid)作為紅色染料,所以被稱作是「紅樹」。

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
