Scrubland / Shrubland

Scrubland is one of the three major types of vegetation in Hong Kong. According to the International Biological Programme, the term "scrubland" refers to "woody vegetation predominantly of shrubs, as used here ranging between 0.5 and 5 m in height", while our government publication Land Utilization in Hong Kong (1968) defined it as "land with a fairly continuous cover of shrubs and bushes from 1 foot (0.3 m) to eight (2.4 m) feet in height".
