Asked in Botany or Plant Biology
Why do plants produce products that have antimicrobial activity?
Because ancestral plants had mutant genes that made them produce these products, which acted to protect them from bacteria diseases, which allowed them to flourish, which allowed them to supplant rival conspecifics that lacked the genes that caused them to produce the products, and the living plants of present time inherited the genes in question from their ancestors.
