Current Research and Prospect of Dendrobenthamia hongkongensis in China


Dendrobenthamia hongkongensis is an excellent ornamental tree species, which has a wide range in germplasm resources distribution and rich varieties within species in China and has also a great development prospect of the new superior species for city landscape. So it is necessary for us to do much research for the development and utilization of this species. According to the latest existing research data of D. hongkongensis, the research achievements of D. hongkongensis in Germplasm resource distribution, bio-ecological habits, breeding and cultivation techniques and so on have been analyzed and summed up. On the other hand, its Ornamental value has been utilized in the modern landscape. At the same time, Edible and Medicinal value of D. hongkongensis has been discussed in the paper as well as Material value of D. hongkongensis. In addition, the future aspects of physiological and ecological research, domestication and breeding new varieties, resource protection and landscape application of D. hongkongensis have been proposed.
