the Nature and reserves
The Steppe zone of Crimea is completely opened and populated since ancient times. Only individual sites of virgin steppe burning in May with scarlet and yellow tulips remain.
Remain (quite often in a reserved mode) and beams rich with fruit bushes, and also very original priruslovye thickets along small Crimean small rivers. Powerful trees of an oak, an elm, poplars tower over thickets of a willow, a wood nut, a cornel, all it is densely twisted by lianas lomonosa, an evergreen ivy, a prickly blackberry.
On the south from Sak to the sea there are already spurs of the External ridge of Crimean mountains with dark landings of the Crimean pine. The big areas also are occupied by landings of an evergreen thuja, and also listopadnymi trees and bushes. The most hardy to a steppe climate ‚Äď a white acacia (robinija) and a bush skumpija with very elegant pink down.
These green corridors connecting flat Crimea with mountain, have huge value for ecological equilibrium. Set of birds, and also hares, foxes and other animals find here a shelter and food.
The Most widespread plant - silvery loh ("—Ą—ą—ä—Ä¬† —Ć—Ä—Ď—č—ą—ć—Ä"). He loves dry solar places, is not afraid some salt. In the end of summer small oval fruits with muchnisto-sweet pulp and a stone grow ripe. Along beaches of the Western coast it is unique protection both against heat and against extraneous eyes. But, please, at least bury a waste in sand and do not break branches. Without loha and the life is bad - with such patient and useful creation it is necessary to become impudent moderately. Except it will already not grow anything.
Loh is delivered to us from caucasus as a park plant, but now extends self-sowing. The destiny of almonds and a walnut is same. Once they were garden plants, but many centuries are settled independently.
Large object of prirodno-reserved fund in these parts is only one lake.
Lake Donuzlav the biggest in Crimea the salty lake, is located on border of Saksky and Black Sea areas. It is separated from the sea by a sandy rerash with remarkable beaches. The lake is a relict of the powerful ancient river which beginning is on Donetsk a range ‚Äď now it is small river Domuzla. And that, and other name translate as ¬ękabane a den¬Ľ, from Turkic words "domuz" - a wild boar and "juve" - a nest. It is connected with the extensive cane thickets attractive to animals. But it is quite possible that these names, as well as names of other close big rivers (Danube, Dnestr, Dnepr, Donets) has a skifo-Sarmatian root "don" (river).
The set of birds nests In upper courses of present lake in such thickets. Ornithological zakaznik has the international value and it is protected according to the Ramsardsky convention on places of wintering and rest of birds of passage.
As in Crimea there are no big rivers, cinematographers remove in their quality of Donuzlav, for example, for an English serial ¬ęAdventure of royal marksman Sharpa¬Ľ.
Reserved object, but already artificial origin is Saksky resort park ‚Äď a monument of landscape gardening art of 19 centuries. About it is more detailed on page about a resort of Saki.
