South Urals Plants


South Urals Plants. Can you imagine the Earth without any plants, without flowered green mat, without forests? Plants with chlorophyll provide us with atmospheric oxygen for breathing, food, clothes, and construction materials... Maybe, the aliens ("green little men", if they exist!) have a green color, because they introduced some information into their genome to produce chlorophyll in their bodies to get the energy from the Sun (or other stars)?!

These factors influence on the plant wintering, because they need snow for enduring frosts. Gardeners need to cover thermophyte plants (roses, vines, etc.) for winter. The Ural Mountains are both the border between Europe and Asia and the natural border for many plants. For example, oak trees (flourishing on the western flanks of the Mountains) can grow on the eastern flanks only after special planting, but badly and slowly.
