美麗有刺

Scenes

- “There is no rose without a thorn”
樹幹上長刺可以避免動物爬上樹上進行破壞,這是一種防護機制,不過,谷主留意多種長刺的樹木,如小果皂莢,廣東刺柊,簕欓花椒,椿葉花椒等,它們的果實並不吸引,未知道這些樹木驚怕的是什麼?

今次介紹的馬錢子/狹花馬錢,它的果實像桔,吸引了瀰猴採摘.它的刺有如鳥爪,堅硬及尖銳,有點嚇人.不過它的刺成長需時,並不一定發揮作用.

Thorns on tree trunks keep animals off from climbing and damaging the tree.  It is a protective mechanism.  However, I notice that fruits of these many varieties of thorny trees are actually not attractive.  Examples are Small-fruited Honeylocust (Gleditsia australis), Kwangtung Scolopia (Scolopia saeva), Prickly Ash (Zanthoxylum avicennae), Ailanthus-like Prickly Ash (Zanthoxylum ailanthoides) etc.  I wonder what these trees are scared of. 

Here is Narrow Flower Poisonnut (Strychnos augustiflora). Its fruits are like tangerines and attract Cercopithecidae to pick them. Its thorns are like birds' claws, hard and sharp and a bit scary.  However, it takes time to grow, so they are not necessarily brought into full play.
