The World of Plants

We are part of the universe. As well as plants. We live and we are grateful for that. So did they. We adjusted, over time the requirements of a modern and civilized society. As well as plants have achieved multiple adaptations to the environment and new mechanisms for defense.
A world apart, wonderful, miraculous in which everything seems to superlative. Continuously try to use it for our own good and full of self exploit to the maximum.
We should respect nature, learn from it, try more to discover, even if most of the time we face a forever unknown.
In search of that unique moment of supreme peace, relaxation and a new world, maybe better than ours, in consciously or not, go back to nature. We fill the mind with the abundance of plants from tropical forests full of life, color and sound.Feel strong vibration, humid heat, smell the scent of earth and flowers. Listen the sound of wind blowing throw the leaves, insect sounds and songs of birds.
Admit it or not, we need the nature of those delicate and sensitive forms of life. We need plants.
Various researchers and scientists have estimated, over time, the unmistakeable value of plants, both for science (botanical, medicine, geography, molecular biology, genetics, cytology) as well as for amateur growers, as a means of recreation and beauty of their home. Worldwide plants help enormously in knowledge of the environment and various changes through which it passes. Destruction of natural habitat, expansion or, conversely, that threatening species are often explaining the study and development of plants in those areas. Plants respond to the action of ultraviolet radiation helping to detect problems such as the destruction of ozone.
Therefore, everywhere in the world, plants play the role of systems alert us in time of changes in the environment, helping us to somehow create a better world.
Plants are not "objects" but beings. Fear or love, enjoy or suffer and communicate among themselves like us. Bodies are extremely fine and complicated that there is not only to produce "biological mass". We can become so, as "vegetative" and unwise as plants when we say that the plants are not exists because do not respond to "hello".
