In the Khotyn National Park in the Chernivtsi region, snowdrops, which are popularly called snowdrops, have already bloomed.

Park employees shared photos of “spring” vegetation on Facebook.

“Last week in Ukraine, the weather was abnormally warm for February, and the plant life began to wake up, because a significant increase in temperature is a biological signal for the beginning of vegetation.

Although such weather anomalies are quite pleasant after prolonged frosts, they can have negative consequences for nature.”– the national park notes.

Warm weather causes the grass to dry out and become dry, which increases the risk of fires.

In insufficiently frozen soil, good conditions for pests are created, which can negatively affect the yield.

Snowdrops appeared due to warming

Premature heat also harms bees, which wake up and fly in search of nectar. Not finding it, the insects begin to eat the stocks in the hive.

If this happens often or lasts a long time, the bees are at risk of starvation.

However, premature heat harms nature

And fruit trees, which are beginning to form buds, suffer the most from sudden winter warming, experts say.

If, after the heat, frosts come again, the buds die and the harvest is lost.
