Natural-resource potential of sarykum ecosystem and its use in viniculture

Applied Problems of Arid Lands Development


The influence of unique natural conditions in the Sarykum sand dune on biochemical and technological properties of grapes has been studied, as well as the taxonomic composition of yeast living on it. The occurrence of active forms of saccharomyces being of interest to biotechnology has been shown. The biological role played by a major component of sabulous soil, i.e., silicon dioxide, has been analyzed.
