Trees imported to Armenia Superior to Native Species

Scientists of the Institute of Botany named after Armen Takhtajyan of NAS RA have discovered that the trees imported to Armenia are more than three times superior to the native trees.

"The aboriginal plants of Armenia represent 346 species of 117 genera of 54 families, and the imported ones represent around 1,600 species and varieties of 193 genera of 66 families," Zhirayr Vardanyan said, Scientific Supervisor at Institute of Botany named after Armen Takhtajyan, Doctor of Biological Sciences.

Scientists have predicted that as a result of regular and purposeful introduction, the alien dendroflora will be represented by about 2000 species and varieties in the botanical gardens of Armenia after 25-30 years.
