Proposals for establishment of genetic reserves of Juniperus communis L. and J. sabina L. in the South Urals

It is suggested that genetic reserves intended on preservation of the most valuable gene pool of plant species may be established as botanical nature monuments. Two genetic reserves in populations of Juniperus communis L are recommended for establishment. in the South Urals (in Bashkir Cis-Uralian and Mountain South- Uralian populations). In J. sabina L. presented in the region as single population, two genetic reserves are also proposed (in mountain and in Trans-Uralian steppe parts of population).

The study of seed productivity of Allium hymenorhizum Ledeb. (Alliaceae) in culture in the Republic of Bashkortostan

The article describes the seed productivity of rare relict spe-cies Allium hymenorhizum (Alliaceae) in culture in the Republic of Bashkortostan. The potential possibilities of seeds formation are realized on 17,7–40,1 %. The correlation between the basic parameters of seed productivity and the year of obtaining seeds and the origin of the sample is established.
