Beketov, went to Ukraine and Bessarabia to study the tobacco disease widespread at that time, which caused enormous damage to agriculture. Young naturalists got down to business with enthusiasm. They managed to establish the existence of two diseases of tobacco at once. One of them - hazel-grouse, an infectious disease, was treated simply: by raising the culture of agriculture, by correct crop rotation. The reason for another - jaundice - was not identified then.

Arrangement of hedges on the siteFruit and berry and vegetable plants grow better in places protected from the wind, where the snow cover is more uniform, and in the summer there is less evaporation of moisture from the soil. It is noted that in such places the relative humidity is also better. In a garden protected from the wind, the most favorable conditions for the work of bees are also created, which is of great importance for pollination of flowers and increasing the productivity of fruit and berry and vegetable plants.

To the secrets of the living (perspectives of genetics)

perspectives of geneticsThe successes of modern biology are mainly associated with that branch of it, which is called molecular biology. Particularly striking results have been achieved in the study of heredity - the properties of organisms, which for a long time remained mysterious. Scientists have managed to uncover the nature of the gene. For centuries it seemed to be something mystical, almost non-existent. And it turned out to be a very real chemical structure - a certain piece of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), which is the carrier of genetic information.

Hardening by the sun

Hardening by the sunIn the complex spectrum of solar radiation, an optical zone with a length of electromagnetic waves in the range of 280-3000 nm is distinguished. Shorter rays (X-rays and gamma rays) are absorbed by the atmosphere and do not reach the earth's surface. In the optical part of the spectrum, in turn, emit infrared rays (760-3000 nm), visible rays (400-760 nm), ultraviolet rays (280-400 nm). 59% of the energy of light reaching the surface of the earth falls on its infrared part, 40% of the energy - on the visible part of the spectrum and only 1% on ultraviolet rays. When passing through a polluted atmosphere, UV rays are absorbed especially intensively, and their proportion is further reduced.


AlderWho among us does not like to relax on a river, lake or reservoir, especially when their banks are covered with forest. Alder often settles in such forests, sometimes forming small groves and even a peculiar type of forest - riverbed black alder forests. Pine, linden, birch get along well next to alder, but alder is especially "friendly" with an equally water-loving willow. These rocks, as they say, are alive with water and prefer running water. But they also have water under their care. People have long noticed that if the alder groves are cut down - expect trouble: springs dry up, groundwater leaves, rivers become shallow ...
