Biologists have found the opportunity to create green oases in the Arctic

Khasyreys appear in places with permafrost after thermal erosion of their banks has dried out. Wherein

Previously, it was believed that their formation took several decades. In such places, a large number of plants grow, despite the low biological diversity of neighboring lands.

Hasyree accumulates in bottom sedimentsmore minerals that later feed the plants. Over the past 30 years, the number of Hasyreev has increased several times, including due to warming in the Arctic.

These ecosystems can be targeted.activate to provoke the growth of green mass. To do this, it is enough to fill the basin with water, creating a dam, and lower it after a few years, after which the grass covered grasses can be used for summer grazing of deer and harvesting green fodder. However, after tens of years, the productivity of the Khasyree will begin to fall again. Now we are studying how and what the rates of its decrease depend on.

In case the trend towards global warmingwill be saved, this will lead to the fact that substances in the frozen part of the marshes will be released. This will lead to a sharp increase in fertility and plant growth in river valleys, where all minerals will be leached.
