Why Study Plants?

Plants provide us with oxygen, food, fuel and fiber. Among other reasons, scientists study plants to improve and secure the food supply for an increasing world population, identify new sources of bioactive compounds and medicines, improve fiber production and identify sources of biofuels and biorenewable resources. This lecture is designed for a general audience or first year university students - no prior knowledge is assumed.
