we depend on plants for many things:

  • food
  • medicine
  • paper for writing and books
  • clothing
  • furniture
  • tools
  • home building material (lumber)
  • landscaping
  • decorative materials

Plants are a food source for many animals which in turn are important to humans for food, clothing, medicine and medicinal treatments and many other uses.
