Only human activity interferes with their immortality
There are many long-lived trees on the planet. But what is the secret of such vitality? He was recognized by specialists from the University of North Texas in the USA and Peking Forestry University in China.
Scientists drew attention to the ginkgo trees, known for the fact that their lifespan is measured in thousands of years. It turned out that the growth of these trees continues for five to six centuries, and then the process stops. But at the same time, the opposite phenomenon does not occur – aging does not begin. Experts have found that trees are capable of releasing a special chemical compound that protects against negative natural influences – drought, disease and other factors.
But before the impact of human life, the trees were powerless. Therefore, they are not destined to live forever, reports CNN.
