Study of Species Lycium L. of Rangeland Ecosystems of Uzbekistan in the Arid Zone Conditions
Abstract: The article presents the features of biology and ecology, growth and development of various Lycium L. species in different ecological conditions of Uzbekistan. The distribution area covers mainly semi-desert and desert zones of Uzbekistan and the description of co-growing coenoses is presented. Based on the study of ecological and biological properties and economically valuable characteristics of Lycium L. species, ecologically significant species were selected as a source material for introduction into culture and use in pharmacology. Useful properties and harms are presented.
