Long before there was human life and animal life, there was plant life. Plants are the very root of life on this planet. If there were no plants, there would never be any ecosystems and no food for herbivores, which would lead to worldwide starvation which would ultimately lead to mass extinction. Regardless of where you look, even under the ice of the arctic you will discover plant life.

One of the most unbelievable habitats on earth is home to several different species some of which are even endangered. Bali is a small island in the Indonesian island chain and has many kinds of plants which are grown for food, which grow naturally in the forests and on mountains, different kinds of tropical fruits which offer vibrancy to the eye and even offer delicious flavor for the tongue.
