緑のレガシー広島 Hiroshima Green Legacy
Seeds from plants that survived the atomic bombing of Hiroshima are to be planted at the Irkutsk State University Botanic Garden in the Siberian town of Irkutsk. The set of seeds of A-bombed survivor trees, picked in Hiroshima in 2011, have arrived at the Irkutsk Botanic Garden, in Siberia, Russia. And these seeds are from the Ginko, Camphor, Kurogane holly, Persimmon and Aogiri trees. The director of Botanic Gardens of Irkutsk State University, Dr. Victor Kuzevanov and his team have been working closely with the "Green Legacy Hiroshima team" (see http://www.unitar.org/greenlegacyhiro...) and have prepared to receive the seeds for planting in the spring.
Some 170 specimens of plants survived the attack on Hiroshima. Their seeds have been carefully preserved and have been given national-heritage status in Japan. Russian scientists say they are not radioactive.
Russia will become the first country other than Japan to plant some of the seeds. They will eventually be planted in 200 cities around the world.
