Fodder plants of the Kyzyl Kum Desert

Abstract

This article analyzes the pasture flora of the Kyzyl Kum Desert. The distribution of fodder plants is analyzed in terms of biotopes, biomorphs, and edibility. The arealogical analysis of the pasture flora of Kyzyl Kum showed that it is characterized by Ancient Mediterranean genesis and has genetic ties to the Iranian, Caucasian, North Central Asian, and Kashgar-Xinjiang floras.
