What are the importance of plants?
Plants are a fundamental part of all ecosystems, providing food for animals and humans alike. They also play an important role in the cycling of water and nutrients, acting as natural filters for groundwater and releasing oxygen into the air that we need to breathe. Moreover, plants purify the air by capturing pollutants such as dust particles, carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide and ozone.
Finally, plants provide us with materials needed in our daily lives such as lumber, paper and textiles. In sum, plants play an integral role in sustaining life on earth; they must be protected if we want to foster healthy ecosystems and maintain a stable global environment.
What are the 5 facts about plant?
1. Plants go through a process called photosynthesis.
This is how plants make their own food.
They absorb sunlight through the plant’s chlorophyll.
The energy from this turns the water into hydrogen and oxygen.
The hydrogen that is made and the carbon dioxide from the outside air are used as the plant’s food.
2. Photosynthesis creates glucose.
You might have heard of glucose when learning about the food you eat.
Photosynthesis is why it is found in fruits and vegetables.
Glucose gives your body the fuel it needs for energy!
3. How are seeds created?
A flower has pollen on it, it also has an ova, which is an egg.
When these join together, it creates a seed.
The seed will make a new plant grow!
4. Seeds are dispersed so they can grow in other areas.
Plants can’t grow in different areas unless their seeds are spread there. There are numerous approaches to this.
Seeds can be carried on the wind. The sycamore tree is one example of a plant that will experience this. The seeds can travel by air thanks to their winglike structures. The seeds of a dandelions are similarly feathery. They can be easily blown away with a blast of air.
Did you know a coconut is the seed of a palm tree? These can float and so water can take them to a different location to grow a new tree.
Once in a while, a group of peas in a pod will disperse in a spectacular fashion. The peas (seeds) will disperse after the pod bursts open. Fruits contain seeds that can be eaten. If an animal eats the fruit, it will then poo elsewhere which will have the seeds in it! Burdock seeds, like many others, have tiny hooks that help them to cling to an animal’s fur.
5. The roots of a plant are usually under the soil.
These transport food and water from the soil to the plant’s upper leaves. They ensure that the plant maintains its vertical position as well.
