Plants are living organisms that require light, water, and air to survive. Plants produce their own food through the process of photosynthesis. Plants come in a variety of shapes and sizes, from small mosses to giant redwood trees.
Plants: The Basics
Photosynthesis: the process by which green plants use sunlight to make their own food. Plant Cells: the basic unit of life in plants that can be found in leaves, stems, and roots. Adaptation: a process by which plants change over time in order to survive in their environment.
Plants can feel when they are being touched and respond by growing towards the source of the touch. Plants produce their own sunscreen to protect themselves from ultraviolet radiation. Plants have the ability to communicate with each other through a network of underground fungi.
