The Importance of Plants to Life on Earth


Without plants, life as we know it could not survive. Plants provide humans and animals with air, shelter, food, and more. They harness the sun's power to supply energy to other organisms, protect and nurture environments, and yield endless resources for humans from clothes to medicine. Readers will learn of the invaluable uses and benefits of plants, as well as the threats they face. They will grow to appreciate the necessity of improving our planet through understanding and caring for plant life, and why it's important now more than ever.
