The research of some populations of sea buckthorn natural thickets in the North-West of Azerbaijan has re-vealed more than 30 sea buckthorn forms, and 14 of them have been studied in detail. They are characterized by valuable biological (high yield, low prickliness, long stem, dry fruit peels) and biochemical (high content of fatty oil, carotenoids, ascorbic acid, flavonoids, catechin and ursolic acid) traits. This testifies to the pro-spects of the use of genetic resources of the Caucasian subspecies of sea buckthorn, to create local high-yielding varieties with high oil content and vitamins.
