The results of twenty-year forest fire experiment fail in Siberia

In Krasnoyarsk started the international expedition organized by the Federal forestry Agency. Scientists from Russia, Mongolia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Germany will evaluate the intermediate results of forest restoration after the artificially created upland forest fire.
According to the Advisor of the head of the Federal forestry Agency Nikolai Kovalyov, the experiment began 20 years ago in the Krasnoyarsk region on the island Bor. 24 then the scientists ran the experiment for 200 years. And at this stage will evaluate one-tenth of the result. The essence of this experiment was to evaluate how forest ecosystems affected by wildfires. So the task is to identify how devastating these fires and what happens in the natural environment without human intervention.
Kovalev noted that many people believe that forest fires are evil. But the reality is slightly different. Because of fires in a particular area of 20-30% are killed, but the other 70-80% of the fire is not harmful or its effect can have a positive impact.
