About this book

Language: Chinese with scientific nomenclature

In this book, the native tree species in Suzhou, China are mainly classified in the form of maps, and they are introduced in the form of pictures with a few words, which are both intuitive and practical. Since ancient times, the plant scenery has been important to poets and artists, and has deeply influenced the garden-making activities since Han, Tang and Song dynasties. At present, the construction of urban green spaces requires gardening and creation of an ecological livable environment, in which plants play a leading role. In this, professional workers make landscapes beautiful, and should be familiar with the local native tree species, and know their shape, colour, texture, branches, leaves, flowers, fruit, roots, and characteristics to create a stable plant community. To this end, we have compiled this book, with a view to providing a convenient reference work to urban green land construction workers in Suzhou. At the same time, this book introduces a wide range of tree species for professional and creative needs.

Summary in Chinese:
Atlas of Native Trees in Suzhou《苏州地区乡土树种图谱》主要以图谱的形式对苏州地区的乡土树种进行了简单分类,分别以图片配以少量文字的形式对其进行介绍,直观实用。植物 的造景与配景自古以来就是诗人、词家意境中物化的创作对象,并因此深深地影响了自汉、唐、宋以来的造园活动。当前,城镇绿地建设要求园林化,创造生态宜居 环境,也需要植物来扮演主角,并以艺术化形象来陶冶人们的情操。从事这一专业的工作者就是一名地貌美容师,应熟悉了解当地的乡土树种,了解其形态、色泽、 质感、枝、叶、花、果、根、干的特征特色,以创造稳定的植物群落和具诗情画意的生态景观效果。为此,我们编了此书,以期能为苏州城镇绿地建设工作者提供方 便:同时,能求得更大范围的引进树种,以供专业创作之需。
