They opened three virgin sites where ancestors of all species of modern tulips grew. Now tulip fields can be seen only on a photo. Employees of forest management say that didn't know about a Red Book plant. Ecologists claim: in a pursuit of quantity of the woods of economy don't pay attention to a ban.
In Nikolayevshchina forestry specialists started up three sites of the virgin steppe where the most rare endangered tulips grew under a plow. It were the cells of the primogenitor of modern grades of garden tulips largest in the region - Shrenka. Now the quantity of these wild-growing flowers in Nikolayevshchina is limited to tens. About it reports ICTV.
Zinoviy Petrovich, biologist: "On this site in three years ruin repeated. There was a powerful locality of a tulip of Shrenk. For today we see that from this locality where we counted 200 plants, today there were three plants".
