About the project
are the basis of life on the Earth. They form enormous quantity
of the organic matter photosynthesising. At this process plants use
the solar energy, water and carbonic gas. At the same time oxygen becomes
free and enters to the atmosphere. Its content at the Earth atmosphere
is about 21 percent and is constantly supported at this level. Practically
all this oxygen is the biogenic origin. The matter forming during photosynthesis
is the main source of existence of herbivorous animals. And as a result
of this it is the main source of existence of predatory animals and
other organisms. So, the plants are the source of people existence.
They feed them, dress, treat, give habitation and fuel. Exactly the
comprehension of the major role of plants in the life of all population
in the World has pushed us to begin the work at this project.
In this project we’d like to tell you about our researches. Julya
and Asya as the most serious of us summarized materials of researches
for some years during the 2004 summer practice. Those researches had
been done by students of Shelekhov Lyceum. It show the reactions of
plants for pollution of the atmosphere and the soil. Olga and Nikita
in systematization of plants, collection of stories and legends that
are connected with the plants. Sometimes magic legends had created a
bright impression on them. So they wanted to paint the illustrations
for those legends. Furthermore they had been watching closely for the
motion of a floral clock and for display of a floral barometer since
an early morning till the night. Of course, there is a common thing
amount those different researches. It is the observation of the quiet
life of other inhabitants in our planet. These inhabitants are plants.
They can’t tell aloud about what they are felling. But a kind
and careful student's look can open the secret of their significant
silence. Do we behave as a part of the population of the Earth rightly?
What do our neighbours by the planet feel beside us? What can we do
for improving the real situation?
We’d like to answer for these and other questions by our project.
So, the main "highlights"
of our project are:
original pictures of plants;
original illustrations of legends about flowers;
photos of wonderful places in the Eastern Siberia;
publication of the results of long-term researches
that have been done by students of Shelekhov Lyceum;
and especial the soul of our team enclosed in
each page of the project.
We hope that a lot of people will find something interesting on these
