Plants are greatly influenced and respond to the surrounding environment. Plants contain chlorophyll which helps to produce its own food by catching the light, through the process called photosynthesis. Roots are the basement part of the plant which absorbs minerals from the soil.
Life cycle of the plants are categorised as annual, biennial and perennial where lifecycle of the plant depends on the environmental factors like season, temperature, soil quality and water resource. Research shows that high temperatures impact the plant development and also influence the relative proportions of leaves and stems.
In return plants produce oxygen by absorbing light and carbondioxide from the environment. Plants are the major aspect for our ecosystem in the way of producing food, fuel, shelter, fiber and controlling the soil erosion.
Environmental aspects, wind works as a carrier in the pollination process and the temperature regulates the growth hormones and water absorbed through plant roots helps for its productivity and nitrogen absorb from the soil through roots which is main mineral required for growth.
