HK Soil Biodiversity of Millipedes Project - Opening & Workshop
Activity Category :
Our school has become the partner school of Hong Kong Soil Biodiversity of Millipedes Research Project, hosted by The Chinese University of Hong Kong. Selected Form 5 and Form 3 Biology students participated in the opening ceremony and the workshop on 22 October. They performed a series of scientific investigations in grasslands near the school campus.
The research project aims to carry out the investigation of the biodiversity of millipedes and other soil macrofauna in Hong Kong together with secondary school students, NGO, and university academics.
Our students will be participating in the collection and identification of millipedes collected around all of the partner schools throughout a year. Collection sites will be recorded, and specimens will be photographed. DNA will also be extracted, and COI markers will be amplified to ensure the species identity by the university. Findings will be summarised and published as a Hong Kong citizen-science output for the first time.
