Abstract

For the first time in the Republic of Kazakhstan, the reintroduction of the kok-saghyz dandelion (Taraxacum kok-saghyz L. Rodin) has been carried out, a rare species included in the Red Book of Kazakhstan. Kok-saghyz is a valuable resource plant of world importance. It is used as an industrial crop, a source of high-quality rubber. During the works held in 2017-2018 the method of returning kok-saghyz to the limits of its natural growth zone, located on the intermountain valleys of the North-Eastern Tien Shan of Kazakhstan, has been tested. The survival rate of kok-saghyz seedlings decreased from 94% to 84% and then to 77% with an increase in the height of the seedlings above sea level (1795, 1842, 1900 meters, respectively). The tested method will be used in the practice of restoration, expansion and preservation of natural populations of Taraxacum kok-saghyz Rodin.
