The preservation of rare plant species

, : The preservation of rare plant species. Botanicheskii Zhurnal (Stsburg). 1977; 62(3): 461-462

The preservation of rare plant species in botanical gardens and in natural habitats is discussed. Normal development of a gene pool would be an impossibility in a botanical garden and only a small portion of the gene pool of a species could be preserved because in nature it is comprised of many local populations. It is concluded that the only method for saving a gene pool is protecting plant populations in their natural surroundings. Because some habitats are impossible to save it is necessary to organize preserves for specific instances in the form of micropreserves. The fact that many unknown plants which are potentially beneficial for humans exist makes it necessary to preserve not only select but entire gene pools of plants.

We studied relationships between shyness and health during a health screening survey of older adults (ages 50-88) living in an active retirement community in the southwestern United States (n = 232). As in previous studies of infants, older indivi...
