On the sign:
אולמוס קטן עלים
]Ulmus parvifolia

תפוצה טבעית: סין, קוריאה, יפן

העלים אמנם קטנים יותר מאשר באולמוס הנמוך (עץ מס. 25 Click for sign's details), אך צורתם דומה, לדוגמה שוליהם המשוננים. שני מיני אולמוס אלה הם היחידים בקמפוס והיחידים הנפוצים בישראל.

Chinese Elm
(Lacebark Elm)
Ulmus parvifolia

Natural range: China, Korea, Japan

The leaves, though smaller than in the Siberian elm (tree 25 Click for sign's details), show the same traits; for instance, both have saw-toothed edges. These are the only two elm species on campus, and the only two commonly planted in Israel.

[הפאה השלישית של הקוביה]
[The third face of the cube]
הבט בסביבתך ונסה למצוא שלושה אולמוסים נוספים (תוכל לזהותם על פי עליהם המשוננים). לאיזה מין הם שייכים, לקטן עלים, כמו עץ זה, או לאולמוס נמוך (בעל עלים גדולים יותר)?

[a question]
Can you find three other elm trees growing near this one? (Identify them by their saw-tooth leaf edges.) Are these others Chinese elms, like this one, or Siberian elms, with larger leaves?

[הפאה הרביעית של הקוביה]
[The fourth face of the cube]
[התשובה לשאלה]
ניתן לראות עוד שלושה עצי אולמוס משמאלך בטווח של 20 מ’. על פי העלים הגדולים יותר, ניתן לזהות שהם ממין אולמוס נמוך.

[The Answer to the question]
You can see three other elms on your left, within 20 meters of here. Based on their larger leaves, you can identify these as Siberian elms.
