Description

lants are essential for human life. They provide the food, shelter, medicines, and biomass necessary for sustainable livelihoods. Virtually all of our food comes
directly or indirectly from plants. More than three-quarters of the world’s people use plants as their primary source of medicine. Plants form the framework
and productive base of most natural communities, thus protecting watersheds and topsoil and maintaining our atmosphere. They sequester carbon, a factor of increas-
ing importance as carbon dioxide contributes to global climate change. Plants also enhance our daily lives through their beauty and symbolism. We achieved our present levels of civilization following a history of millions of years among plants and depending on them.
