On the sign:
18
ארז אטלנטי
Cedrus atlantica


תפוצה טבעית: הרי האטלס במרוקו

ענפיו השטוחים של מין זה (הדומים לארז הלבנון, עץ מס. 71 (צ"ל 17) Click for sign's details) שמוטים יותר כלפי מטה. כיום, תפוצתם הטבעית של מיני הארז מוגבלת והם מרוחקים זה מזה. כנראה שבעבר הרחוק תפוצתם השתרעה בעולם על פני שטחים רצופים והרבה יותר גדולים.

Atlas Cedar
Cedrus atlantica


Natural range: Morocco’s Atlas Mountains

These flat branches, though resembling those of the Lebanon cedar (tree 17 Click for sign's details), droop more at their tips. Each species of cedar now occupies a small, widely separated natural range. Probably, though, they once ranged broadly, overlapping one another.

[שאלה]
הארז שייך לאותה המשפחה כמו האורנים. מה הוא ההבדל בין עמדתם של האיצטרובלים אצל הארזים לבין אלה של האורנים (לדוגמא עצים מס. 31 ו- 41 (צ"ל 13 Click for sign's details ו- 14 Click for sign's details)?

[a question]
Cedars and pines are of the same family. In what directions do the cones grow on the branches of these three cedars, compared with pines (nearby trees 13 Click for sign's details and 14 Click for sign's details)?

[הפאה הרביעית של הקוביה]
[The fourth face of the cube]
[התשובה לשאלה]
האיצטרובלים של הארזים צומחים כלפי מעלה, אלה של האורנים - לרוב כלפי מטה או הצידה.

[The Answer to the question]
Cedar cones grow pointing upward, those of pines generally outward or downward.
