Nutritional and medicinal properties of Korean cedar cones and seeds in Russian Far East

Natalya G. Rozlomiy


Cedar-broadleaf forests developed by Korean cedar (Pinus koraiensis Siebold et Zucc.) are the most ancient and most valuable forest formation of the Far East. More than half of these forests areas and reserves are located in Primorsky Krai, where multidimensional works are carried out during the past decades to restore its range and timber reserves.
