Water gathering grounds cover one-third of Hong Kong and most of them are situated within country parks. Development and activities are strictly regulated by law, and this has created diverse ecological environments that nurture biodiversity. At the same time, the healthy ecology further enhances water quality and stabilises water supply, demonstrating the importance of the relationship between water and ecology.
These reference books cover the waterworks, history and ecosystem of three water gathering grounds, namely Shing Mun Reservoir, Tai Tam Reservoir Group and Plover Cove Reservoir Water Gathering Grounds. Using these water gathering grounds as examples, these books explore Ecosystem Services, covering Provisioning Services, Regulating Services, Supporting Services and Cultural Services.
Specifically designed for secondary school teachers, Teaching Materials in the books cover several teaching resources and activities that are suitable for teaching Integrated Science, Biology, Geography and Citizen & Social Development. Teachers may also download the relevant materials by scanning the QR code.
