During the expedition, scientists discovered several plants that had not been recorded on the territory of Russia before. Now their exact identity is set by the Chinese and Korean determinants. Among the new forms, experts identified a plant called deicia smooth, small-bellied bell, as well as unusual peas and other plants, which were reported at an organized press conference.
