Richness of the steppe

The steppe is a landscape dominated by large areas where man has left few traces of himself. Nevertheless, the steppe offers sights of rare beauty to those who venture amidst its boundless lands. But the steppe is not only interesting for the beauty of its landscape: it is rich in underground minerals and hydrocarbon fields. The flora of the steppe offers some medicinal plants, such as the eleutherococcus (Eleutherococcus senticosus), also known as Siberian ginseng.
