Life begins with plants. Without the forest cover of our planet, which includes more than 300,000 plant species, animal life as we know it could never have existed. Continuously adapting to the natural dynamics of their environment, these tree forms quickly invaded almost all the emerged lands to form the first forests.

Deforestation, excessively uses of natural resources, polluting the environment are the greatest mistakes of human beings. There are a lot of plants and species are already disappeared by the men, but the lack of awareness about our biosphere still continues.

Wonderful information! everyday you are making different taste, thanks for variety of post!
