Can you imagine your life without plants? Plants form the basic food staple for all life forms. They are the major source of food and oxygen on earth, since no animal can supply these necessary components without plants. Discover what parts of the plant we use and for what. We'll review these parts and explore how humans depend on plants directly and indirectly to create everything from things that we need to live such as food and clothes to the aesthetic use of plants. In French and English; please note language preference in 'comments' box of CILC request form.
